Wolverhampton Wanderers: Fans agree with Ruben Neves being named top player of Nuno era

Wolverhampton Wanderers: Fans agree with Ruben Neves being named top player of Nuno era - Wolves

When Joe Edwards released his top 10 Wolverhampton Wanderers players to have played under Nuno Espirito Santo, it would have been very difficult to please everybody with his own personal take. However, it appears he has managed to appease plenty of them with his choice.

The Old Gold correspondent for The Express and Star revealed that he felt Ruben Neves was the star of the show for the Molineux Stadium outfit under the Portuguese manager and it seems to be a popular choice.

Of course, the midfielder has been a standout for the club since joining for what could be described a bargain fee thought to have been around the £15.8million mark, although it had not been disclosed by the club (as per BBC).

Perhaps well known for his ability to find the back of the net from distance with some outrageous efforts, it might be easy to forget that the middleman is still only 23-years-old.

Nonetheless, when taking a look at his match averages for Wolves over the years, it is easy to infer why Edwards named him the top performer during the Nuno era at Molineux. According to WhoScored, Neves has managed to achieve match ratings of 7.20 in his debut Championship campaign, 6.86 and 6.76 in his two Premier League seasons to date.
