Wolves fans are loving Ruben Neves after his latest comments

Ruben Neves’ status in the West Midlands has risen to dumbfounded levels after his recent comments in the press stating that he feels at home in Wolverhampton, a statement that left a number of supporters throwing further admiration behind their defensive midfielder.

The 22-year-old made his domestic debut at the age of 17 and took a record off Cristiano Ronaldo as the youngest-ever Portuguese player to play in the Champions League, before then becoming the youngest captain in the competition a season later.

Neves is an imperative member of Nuno Santo’s squad having made 40 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring five goals and assisting four more as he contributed towards their seventh-place finish in the Premier League.

His performances over the course of last season drew interest from the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool, although the former refused to pay £100m for him.

But his latest remarks have arguably put to bed any potential of a move away which has clearly delighted many of the Molineux faithful with one supporter brandishing the midfielder as one of the greatest to put on the old gold shirt.

Others expressed their love for Neves with one fan begging he spends his entire career in the West Midlands whilst another supporter called him a genius.
