Many Wolves fans have been left fuming over one of Bruno Lage’s recent admissions.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of his team’s home match against Tottenham Hotspur at Molineux this afternoon, the manager admitted (via Tim Spiers on Twitter): “For now we’re training with 15 professional players.”
Where will Wolves finish in the Premier League?
Having recently let Owen Otasowie go on a permanent deal, Lage’s squad is now becoming increasingly threadbare, with no signs yet of it being bolstered up with less than two weeks to go until the summer transfer window closes.
Considering that the Midlands club can name 20 players in their squad for matchdays, it seems as if it will be a real struggle to do so without having to name a few youngsters on the bench, so it is no surprise to see numerous Wolves supporters fuming that the club have not brought in more players.
Wolves fans erupt over Lage admission
These Wolves fans fumed as the news was shared on Twitter, with one describing the situation as ‘shocking’ and others venting their fury at chairman Jeff Shi and the club’s Fosun ownership:
“Shocking. The board said trust them at the end of last season and they would increase the squad first team size?????? Have they learn nothing from last season. If we get 3 in which is doubtful we will have the same squad size as last season”
“If it stays like this, Jeff Shi needs booing every time the cameras go to him.”
“Incredible, like a League 2 outfit. Quite embarrassing tbh.”
“This is relegation squad size”
“15?? What a joke, come on Jeff”
“Absolute shambles, Fosun out”
