Wolves boss Lopetegui praises Toti for Forest draw

Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui highlighted Toti's performance after their draw against Nottingham Forest.

Lopetegui admits he asked the defender to play out of position at the City Ground.

He said, “It's not easy to stay without playing a lot of times and after be ready when the coach needs him, or the team needs him. He's showed in two positions a good performance. When he was young, he played there [left-back] and we tried to work with him in training sessions.

"He, of course, has different characteristics of the rest of the full-back. Today I think it was a good thing to have this kind of player on the pitch and after he continued as a centre back. “
