Wolves: Journalist comments on Willian Jose’s future

Image for Wolves: Journalist comments on Willian Jose’s future

The Athletic journalist Tim Spiers featured on Wolves podcast The Molineux View to talk about the latest news from the Wolverhampton Wanderers camp. 

Wolves were held to a 0-0 draw against local rivals Aston Villa at the weekend, which only added to Nuno Espirito Santo’s woes regarding his strikers.

Striker Willian Jose is still yet to score for his loan side since stepping in for the unavailable Raul Jimenez – despite playing nine league games (including seven starts) for the Old Gold.

Speaking on the topic, Spiers had this to say on the on-loan Willian Jose.

I mean, he’s playing for his future, here – he’s 29 now, one big career move in him potentially. Surely he wants to play in the Premier League and become a Wolves player permanently? But he way he’s going, it’s not going to happen.”

And I think his movement in the box is the biggest problem. I mean, he’s got an impressive goal record in La Liga; reached double figures for the past four years, scored against Real Madrid, Barcelona, Napoli. So is it just him that’s the problem, or is it his teammates? I think the intensity of the league just isn’t for him, really.”

Espirito Santo has been without star striker Jimenez since November after the Mexican suffered a head injury that required the 29-year-old to have surgery on his skull.

Should Wolves sign Willian Jose this summer?





TIF Thoughts on Spiers’ Willian Jose comments…

Willian Jose has really struggled in the Premier League since arriving in January. Unfortunately, given Wolves’ circumstances, the onus really has been on him to perform, but it is clear he has had trouble finding the net in the Premier League.

If Jose is looking to remain in England next season, then he will have to start proving his worth on the pitch.
