A number of Wolves fans have been critical of the display of Daniel Podence in their Premier League game at home to Burnley at Sunday lunchtime.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were in for a shock at Molineux as a hat-trick from Chris Wood put the Clarets 3-0 up at half-time. Ashley Westwood added a late fourth on a miserable afternoon for the hosts at Molineux.
Should Wolves start Podence?
There were some very poor performances in Old Gold on the day, but perhaps none more so than Podence, who struggled throughout and was duly taken off for Vitinha just shy of the 70-minute mark.
The 25-year-old lost out on 90% of his duels in the match and failed to record a single successful dribble, key pass or cross. He also lost possession of the ball on nine separate occasions, earning him a measly 6.2 overall rating on Sofascore.
Wolves fans on Podence display
These Wolves fans blasted Podence on Twitter, with one supporter going as far as to claim that the Portuguese forward was a ‘liability’:
“Podence has been a liability in the last three games, his distribution is the Hermes of professional footballers, it’s like playing ten against 12 when he’s in the team”
“I’d just give Podence away, I really don’t like him.”
“Podence doesn’t look fit enough to walk around the pitch never mind run around it #wwfc”
“Why do we always change formation to fit Podence in, he’s a bang average player, stick him on the wing and at least try use his pace in behind, instead of falling over all the time and losing the ball in the midfield”
“Podence looks terrible again”
“Podence not even making a two-yard run to make a tackle. Absolute disgrace.”
