Wolves: Steve Bull backs Moutinho to become club mainstay

Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho has been backed to become a Wolves ambassador once his best playing days are behind him. 

This comes from none other than club legend Steve Bull, who has suggested that the 34-year-old has a future at Molineux beyond the moment he hangs up his boots.

In two-and-a-half seasons in the Midlands since arriving from Monaco for £5.04m (Transfermarkt), Moutinho has represented the Old-Gold club with distinction on 131 occasions.

Bull has exclusively told Football FanCast that he believes the influence the 130-cap superstar has had on the club doesn’t have to end on the pitch:

“I think Moutinho is a good one to keep at the club even if he isn’t playing because he’s probably good in the changing room and a good ambassador to have. Moutinho will be good for the younger players to help nurture and grow them.

“Whoever Nuno decides to keep, whether it’s the old legs or the young legs, you still need a bit of both in the squad and we do need somebody to go box-to-box.”

Should Moutinho be kept on beyond his playing days?





Moutinho has certainly been a superb servant in his time at the club and would offer a wealth of elite experience to the likes of Morgan Gibbs-White and Vitinha moving forward.

Having already played a huge part in the development of compatriot and midfield partner Ruben Neves, perhaps a coaching role would be the first step for the classy Portuguese ace.
