Former Everton player turned football pundit Andy Hinchcliffe has praised Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves.
The Portugal international joined Wolves in the summer transfer window on a big money transfer, and has made a big impression for Nuno Santo’s side.
Wolves are top of the Championship with 44 points, one point above Cardiff City, and Neves has played a big role in it.
The Sky Sports pundit says that the 20-year-old has been “outstanding” in central midfield for Wolves this season.
He says that Wolves are a compact side and they are doing everything right at the moment.
The front three has been scoring for them, the formation has been working extremely well for them, and as such, there is no weakness in the side.
Hinchcliffe says that Wolves are perfectly equipped to get through the busy festive period. However, he warns that the biggest obstacle between them and the Championship is complacency.
“They are doing everything right and you don’t see a weakness in the side,” said the Sky Sports pundit, as quoted by The Sunday Mercury (page 50 printed edition – 03/12/2017)
“The formation is working well, defensively they’re very strong and Ruben Neves has been outstanding in central midfield.
“They also work incredibly hard off the ball and I don’t really see where it can go wrong, unless they get complacent and think that the job is done. That’s what they’ve got to guard against more than anything else.”
