Wolves defender Semedo: Tough Lage approach good for me

Wolves defender Nelson Semedo says he's a better player for working with manager Bruno Lage.

Semedo has thanked Lage for helping him find his best form in a Wolves shirt.

“I was feeling that he was pushing really hard for me and I needed that," Semedo told the Express & Star.

“I have to thank him for this because I needed someone to really push me because I guess I was comfortable.

“I was comfortable playing for Barcelona and having a good career until here, but he saw that I can go further and he pushed a lot for me. It was good. In the beginning of the season I was better but he wanted me to be even better because I knew I could be.

“With games I started to be better and better and I have to thank him. Sometimes a coach is not only for training, but to push us.

“We already know how to play. Of course you have to improve here and there a little bit, but sometimes you need a coach that pushes you and it was great. It worked."
