Wolves striker Pedro Neto happy to score on debut

Wolves striker Pedro Neto is delighted to be off the mark after victory over Europa League opponents FC Pyunik.

The Portuguese forward, who joined Wolves from Lazio in the summer, also set up Morgan Gibbs-White for the second goal of the evening and is enjoying being part of the Wolves squad and learning from his new teammates.

He told the club's website, “The feeling was amazing to play in front of these amazing fans. To score and make an assist in my first game was incredible, especially in front of these incredible fans.

“I enjoyed playing with the team in my first game because we played a good game. The second-half for me was better and now we are focused already on the game of Monday."

On facing Manchester United, Neto added: “We know that this game is already in the past and now we are focused on the game of Monday. It's a very big game but we want to win.

“We know that the team had a good record against Manchester United last year, and now we'll try to do the same again this year."
