Originally arriving back at Compton Park as an Academy coach to assist loans pathways manager Seyi Olofinjana, Kennedy has now stepped in as caretaker head coach of the under-23s following the departure of another ex-Wolves star in Rob Edwards.

But the 2003 Division One play-off final goal scorer said the chance to work with the loans group and help open career routes for several Wolves players was what attracted him back to Molineux after 13 years away.

He told the club's website: "We want Wolves to be a go to club for loan players. We want clubs to be ringing us up saying 'we want your players on loan' because they're always in great shape, their attitudes are fantastic and they're highly motivated.

This is so when they're going on loan, they're not taking five or six weeks finding their feet and getting ready, we're creating an environment that when we send players out on loan, they feel good about themselves, feeling fit, feeling ready technically and tactically for the challenge and highly motivated.

We don't just want to send players anywhere, we want to send them to clubs who have a connection, a style of play, or a vision that relates to ourselves, because if they are going out on loan, when they come back in, they're ready to go again."

Originally arriving back at Compton Park as an Academy coach to assist loans pathways manager Seyi Olofinjana, Kennedy has now stepped in as caretaker head coach of the under-23s following the departure of another ex-Wolves star in Rob Edwards.

He told the club's website: One of the main reasons I wanted to come back to Wolves and what really attracted me back here, on top of having the chance to work with people like Rob [Edwards] and Scott, was working with the loans group.

Working with those players, you're dealing with all different types of situations in terms of where players are at. Within a loans group, you've obviously got anyone from a player who's going out on loan with a view to coming back and playing with the first-team, you've also got players whose futures are in the balance.

They might not have a future in the Wolves first-team, they're maybe too old for the under-23s and we're there to help unblock their pathway to secure their future elsewhere."

The men in old gold won three matches in nine days going into the international break, including eye-catching victories at Besiktas and Manchester City.

Coady told the club's website: We won't forget it. It was an amazing week for this football club, we beat Watford, went to Besiktas and put the effort in with such a small squad, and then went to the home of the champions and put in a brilliant performance.

It was massive for us because a lot of people spoke, saying how we started slow, but we were learning. A lot of players haven't played in the Europa League before, we've had an awful lot of games, and the most important thing was we were listening to the manager after every game and learning. We've got a break, which we need, but we'll move on as soon as possible."

Vallejo is delighted with the way he's been treated in the first months of his deal.

He told AS: "Since the first day I have been treated phenomenally. I am very comfortable with the team, the coach and the way we play.

"I wanted to live this experience. I spoke with Jony and Adama and Real Madrid strongly recommended me to come here. They told me that I would continue to progress. And of course the Wolves bet influenced. Nuno called me and told me about the project.

"It was the club that bet most on me.

"I have relied heavily on Jony, Adama, Ral Jimnez ... Here we are like a family because we spend a lot of time together in the sports city, we eat together ... It shows."

He wrote for the Express & Star: "Adama Traore's finishing was top-class as well.

"He has had a lot of criticism during his time at the club, with people saying it's all 100mph with him too fast.

"He took his goals absolutely brilliantly, though. He slotted them away like a true goalscorer. Some might think they were easy finishes. Trust me, they weren't.

"Traore could have fluffed his lines and smacked the ball into the row Z, but he knew where he wanted to put the ball and placed it past the keeper with confidence both times.

"Raul Jimenez set each of them up, of course, and I thought he was excellent as well, constantly making himself available.

"It was a delight to see him run at the City backline and take on Nicolas Otamendi in the build-up to Traore's first. It's something we expect to see from Diogo Jota, not Jimenez."

He wrote for the Express & Star: "A lot has been said about City's shortcomings on the day by pundits.

"But that was not the story. The story was how good Wolves were against Pep Guardiola's side.

"Wolves set up to stop City from playing to harass them and they carried out the plan flawlessly.

"It is amazing what a week can do in football, isn't it?

"It can knock you down or have you on cloud nine, and, thankfully, we have had the latter after Wolves' wins at Besiktas and City.

"We are playing at the tempo that was there so often last season again.

"We didn't have many chances against Besiktas, but the never-say-die attitude shone through.

"Then at City, we were thinking it was the toughest fixture we could've asked for, but the lads went there in a positive frame of mind and got exactly what they deserved. To a man, they were fantastic."

The defender grew up in the city and came through the Reds' academy before leaving in 2014.

"It's a weird feeling, when I play against them I want to win more than ever. I don't know why that is I just do," said Coady.

"I know it's early doors, but I think with Liverpool this year they don't seem to be panicking.

"People are talking abut them conceding and not keeping clean sheets but when they do they think it's okay cause we can score another. City seemed like that last year.

"With Liverpool they missed out on the Champions League the year before and then they kick on again because the manager is that good.

"I don't want to speak too soon but they look to be going [up] again which is so good to see for them."

It was first time the champions had lost at home since December 2018.

"We've got a way of playing and we stuck to it. Stay in shape and be organised," said Coady.

"The biggest thing about it is we never change the way we do things.

"We said before the game to be brave and every time the ball goes back try and get up because I think the more they pin you back and it's on the edge of your own box it's a matter of time with Manchester City they're that good.

"Be quick when we counter. We've got fast players so when we counter be as quick as we possibly can and the boys were fantastic."

Uefa sanctioned the Slovak champions after fans made racist chants in a play-off game against PAOK of Greece.

But Uefa rules will allow accompanied children aged 14 and under to attend.

In addition, 200 Wolves fans will be allowed in to see the game, providing they hold 'category one tickets'.

Uefa ruled in August that Slovan must play their next two European games behind closed doors as a consequence of racist behaviour by their supporters at a play-off match against Greek side POAK Salonika.
