Introducing: Ruben Vinagre

Introducing: Ruben Vinagre - Features

Wolverhampton Wanderers failed to secure all three points against Huddersfield Town last time out as they were beaten convincingly at Molineux. 

The Midlands club are without a win in their last five Premier League fixtures, so improvements are desperately needed if they are to challenge for a European place.

Sadly, the international break took its toll on the club as one of the standout performers in the current campaign, Jonny Otto, suffered a partial ligament tear in his right knee, which is set to sideline him for six weeks.

But, Nuno Espirito Santo shouldn’t be too fussed about the injury news as he has a perfect replacement at his disposal, Portuguese wonderkid, Ruben Vinagre.

Jorge Mendes’ client Ruben Vinagre joined Wolves on loan from Monaco back in the summer of last year and impressed during the club’s promotion-winning season in the Championship. So, the Midlands club then decided to splash the cash on the youngster to bring him in on a permanent deal.

Jonny Otto has been hugely impressive since making the move from Atletico Madrid on loan and will play a huge part in Wolves’ season when he returns from injury.

The Huddersfield result may not have gone the way of Nuno Espirito Santo’s side but there was definitely positives to take from individual performance, as Vinagre offered plenty of quality in attacking and defensive areas.

Of course, the teenager still has his whole career ahead of him and is yet to develop into the finished product, but the early signs are there, with Everton and Arsenal both registering an interest in the past.

Therefore, Wolves have nothing to worry about at this moment in time, with Ruben Vinagre set to excel and thrive in the side to help fire Nuno Santo’s side up the table.
