Wolves boss Lage: Moutinho's future depends on him

Wolves boss Bruno Lage insists a new contract for Joao Moutinho is in his hands.

The veteran midfielder turned 35 last week.

Lage said, “It was his birthday last week, and he said to me he feels 28. I'm happy with him. Every day in the training he's training hard, so we cannot think about his age in the situation of these kinds of players. We need to look for what he's doing on the pitch, and not just for him, but everyone, the way they work, and the way they are playing.

“[His future] is depending on him. If he's training hard, he rests, he knows his body. If he wants to continue to play, I cannot predict the future.

“When we are enjoying what we are doing, we don't think in the future. I see him every day with a big motivation to be a better player, to improve himself and to help the team to be better.

“I talk with him in the same way I talk with a guy who's 18-years-old, and I saw him with a lot of experience and a lot of will to be better every day."
