Many Wolves fans ripped into defender Nelson Semedo after their 0-0 draw against Aston Villa on Saturday evening.
The 27-year-old started at wing-back for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side as his team were unable to break down the resolute Villans.
Semedo has been a regular for Wolves this season, starting all but one Premier League game, but bizarrely divides opinion among the fanbase. Despite this, few will argue about his showing at Villa Park.
Per Sofascore, the Portugal right-back lost 11 duels, gave the ball away 19 times, was dispossessed four times and made no interceptions. No Wolves player lost more duels while only one was more careless in possession.
Should Wolves start Semedo?
While many fans made their feelings clear on social media – one dubbed the £27m signing a “big flop” in frustration at his performance – others offered their towards journalist Nathan Judah, who suggested that Semedo looked tired rather than playing poorly.
Wolves fans slate Semedo
“Until Semedo starts trying to take people on in dangerous areas and doesn’t always turn back in the final third he’s going to be a big flop at the price we paid”
“I’ve always stuck up for the bloke but IMO worse Semedo performance today”
“2nd half has been like a different team but Semedo, Adama, Moutinho and Donk have been awful”
“I might be wrong but the guy can’t control a ball or defend and cost £35m”
“This awful…again…no concentration and can’t pass to each other!”
“No he doesn’t”
