Football pundit Ian Wright has been sharing his thoughts on Wolves Trincao and his start to the season with the Old Gold.

This comes after Wright made an appearance on a recent episode of Match of the Day where he spoke about Saturday’s Premier League fixtures, including Wolves’ 2-0 win over Watford.

On the subject of Trincao, who started the match against the Hornets before being substituted off in the second half, Wright had this to say about the player. (1.10.00)

He said: “[Trincao has a] beautiful left foot.

“I think he’s going to be brilliant this season with the way he’s started.

“Once he’s won the ball here, he’s got the capability of a skill, very good left foot once he gets on it.”

TIF Thoughts on Ian Wright’s comments on Trincao…

Wolves signed the 21-year-old, who is currently valued at £19.8 million according to Transfermarkt, on a loan deal from Spanish club Barcelona during the recent summer window.

Taking into account how only Adama Traore (8.14/10) has managed to earn a higher overall season performance rating than Trincao (7.1/10) of players that have started all four of Wolves’ league games this season according to WhoScored, it’s safe to say that things have been going well for the so far and that he seems to have settled in well.

Have you been impressed with Trincao so far this season?

In terms of his performance against Watford, the fact that the Express & Star gave the a match rating of 8/10 saying that he was “silky and classy on the ball and looked dangerous when he had time and space to his advantage,” and that he is “improving and getting used to the system and English football,” this backs up why Wright has picked up on what he’s been doing in a Wolves shirt so far this season.

Moving forward, if Trincao can start to add some goals and assists to his game throughout the campaign, then he could well go on to make Wright’s prediction about him come to fruition and have a very good season with Bruno Lage’s side.

Also, given how Wolves have an option to buy Trincao at the end of his loan spell from Barcelona, it will be intriguing to see whether or not they choose to take up this option if they think the player has done enough to warrant a permanent move to Molineux.
