Former Premier League striker Marlon Harewood has urged Wolves to be more adventurous in games in an exclusive interview with Football FanCast.
Having scored just 28 goals in 28 games this season, Wolves are currently one of the lowest-scoring teams in the Premier League. The Midlands club have, of course, been hindered by a long-term injury to Raul Jimenez.
The Mexican forward was Wolves top scorer last term, finishing the Premier League campaign with 17 strikes to his name, and has been sorely missed.
Nevertheless, Harewood has still called for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to show a bit more ambition during games. Speaking about Wolves’ recent approach to matches, Harewood exclusively told FFC:
“I do think they should be more adventurous. They’ve got some really good players there, really good players when they’re on it. It’s just finishing off teams, obviously the striker in that area where he gets in positions where them balls are coming in the box or making a run for someone else to run into the space, they just need that striker to finish it off.
“But they have got a good core of players that I think need to go and push on.”
While Wolves are certainly missing Jimenez, Nuno still has a host of other quality players in his squad to call upon.
The likes of Pedro Neto, Ruben Neves and Adama Traore are all talented individuals, even despite the latter struggling with his final ball currently.
The Spanish winger has failed to score a single goal in the Premier League this season, but he is still managing to complete the most successful dribbles per game (4.1) in English football’s top flight (via WhoScored), a demonstration of the talent Nuno is still working with.
