Wolves fans swoon over Daniel Podence’s debut against Manchester United

Having joined from Olympiakos in a £16.6m deal in the last week of the January transfer window, Wolves fans would surely have been salivating at the prospect of seeing Daniel Podence in action.

And the 24-year-old came on to enjoy his debut for the club when he helped his side clinch a 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Saturday afternoon. The winger was thrown on for Adama Traore in the 76th minute, and in the limited time he was on the pitch at Old Trafford, he showed Nuno Espirito Santo and the travelling fans just exactly why they signed him.

As per Sofascore, he had one shot on goal blocked, played one key pass and cross, and also showed his defensive diligence by winning both of his ground duels, and making a tackle and interception a piece.

It was an all-round cameo from the Portuguese ace, and after watching his performance, Wolves fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the former Olympiakos man.

A couple of fans even drew comparisons between Podence and current Real Madrid star Eden Hazard.

One fan in particular meanwhile appeared to poke fun at United for spending £47m on their Portuguese January signing, Bruno Fernandes.

Having been given less than 15 minutes to shine by Nuno, Podence did everything he could to make the most of his opportunity. He almost grabbed the winner too, but saw his swivel and shot blocked by a recovering United defender very late on.

There was plenty of promise about his display, not least the fact he didn’t shy away from getting into challenges, and making a tackle.

Shifting Traore from the first-team might be tricky, but Podence certainly showed enough to warrant a greater chance over the coming weeks and months.

Meanwhile, Wolves fans have been left to rue this man’s loan departure.
