Pedro Neto's incredible feeling after Wolves goal

"The feeling was amazing" said Wolves new boy Pedro Neto after he made a sparkling debut at Molineux.


The 19-year-old Portuguese forward – who joined from Lazio in a deal believed to be worth around £20million earlier this month – scored and laid on an assist in the 4-0 win over Pyunik last night.

"The feeling was amazing to play in front of these amazing fans," he said. "To score and make an assist in my first game was incredible, especially in front of these incredible fans.

"I enjoyed playing with the team in my first game because we played a good game. The second-half for me was better and now we are focused already on the game of Monday.

“I’ve settled in well, but my teammates are players that we can play easily with because they’re great players that make me learn with them and help me a lot.”

Wolves now face Manchester United at Molineux on Monday before playing Torino next Thursday, in Turin, for the first leg of their Europa League play-off.

Neto added: "We know that this game is already in the past and now we are focused on the game of Monday. It’s a very big game but we want to win.

“We know that the team had a good record against Manchester United last year, and now we’ll try to do the same again this year.

“First, we’re going to think about the game of Monday, then we’ll think about Turin.”
