Wolves boss Nuno excited to be leading club into China

Wolves boss Nuno is excited to be leading the club into China.

Nuno is taking a squad of 26 players, including senior internationals and Academy youngsters, out on the club's first ever trip to China, where the team will compete in the 2019 Premier League Asia Trophy.

He told the club's website, "We know that going to China was something that the club, including myself, want to be involved in. Now we have to realise that it's going to be tough and we have to change a little bit.

“We know that in China we have to be patient and be flexible enough to, maybe, afford to not have a training session because of the climate or things that here in Compton we can control.

“In China, we don't know what we're going to find, so anticipating that is the best way.

“We go knowing that what is not so important is to way we're going to perform there, but that it's one more step in our preparation for the season ahead."
