Wolves fullback Semedo: Where Lage and Nuno are different

Wolves fullback Nelson Semedo is confident of big things ahead under manager Bruno Lage.

Semedo has completed his second season at Molineux.

He told the club's website: “This season has been way better. Bruno [Lage] brings something different to the club. Nuno [Espirito Santo] is a great coach, a great person as well, he had great staff and I loved to work with them, but it was different.

“Bruno, he likes to play more and more with the ball and that makes a lot of difference, not only in me, but in all of the players here. You can see the way we're playing, and now I've started to show what I'm capable of."

Semedo continued: “If you're not critical of yourself, you're never going to improve. If you know you're doing things wrong and you leave it, you'll never be better.

“In my case, I had to clean my head a little bit and work on the aspects I needed to improve. With the ball, I knew it would be easier because in Barcelona, we always had the ball, and it's easier.

“But you have to be critical with yourself in a good way because it's important and it's going to help you improve.
