Leander Dendoncker says Wolves will 'give everything' to try and beat Manchester United this weekend.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side host the Red Devils in Saturday night's FA Cup quarter-final at a sold-out Molineux.

Belgian midfielder Dendoncker has played a key role in a Wolves run that's seen them lost just one of their past 11 matches in all competitions.

And ahead of the big game he told BBC WM Sport: "We’ll give everything to make it a great game for us and the fans, then we’ll see where we get.

“It will be a tough game, I hope our fans will be ready and backing us. Let’s hope for a good game.

“We’re playing against a big club, it’s a great opportunity for us to play a great game and hopefully to win.

“It won’t be easy but we’ll do everything and do our best to maybe win.

"It will be a big game, something I didn’t experience until now. We will try to be focused and ready – it's exciting."

Dendoncker, who is on loan from Anderlecht this season ahead of a £12m permanent move to Molineux in the summer, endured a frustrating few months in English football.

He barely featured until after Christmas, but has since become a regular.


“It (had been) some difficult months for me," Dendoncker admitted. "A player always wants to play, that’s logic.

"When you don’t play it’s difficult mentally.

“I told myself I have to keep working, training hard and my chance would come and I had to be ready.

“That’s what I try to do every time, every day, to train hard and be ready for the games.

“I made a transfer which was important for me in my career, I’m glad I made the step.

“I’m happy here, it’s a nice club, nice people. It’s an ambitious club but at the same time there isn’t a lot of pressure, we can do our thing.

“We have a great team, great players, they’re all good people.

“If you see the transfers they made, if when I came here they explained their way of thinking, it attracted me.

“I hope we can keep going because we’re having a great season. I hope we can finish well.

"Mostly we deserve to be where we are. We try to play attractive football and try to be well organised.

"Where we are right now is deserved.

"We take it game by game and there are a lot of games, there isn’t much time to think.

"I hope we can finish these last eight league games well – and also in the FA Cup."
