Exclusive: Steve Bull wants Joao Moutinho to become a club ambassador

In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Wolves legend Steve Bull has backed Joao Moutinho to stay at the club as an ambassador once his legs won’t let him play anymore.

Moutinho has been with Wolves since he arrived from AS Monaco in 2018 for what now appears to be a bargain of just £5 million as he brought experience and a winner’s mentality.

Should Wolves replace Moutinho?

Yes, we need fresh faces!

No, he's still great!

No, he's still great!

In two-and-a-half seasons in the Midlands, Moutinho has made 131 appearances and played 38 games in the Premier League during the last two seasons as Wolves achieved back-to-back seventh-placed finishes.

Speaking on why Moutinho is a good player to keep at the club despite his age and how Wolves need both youth and experience in their squad, Bull told FFC:

“Yeah, 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 boxtobox.”

Who is this player?

This is the first season that Joao Moutinho has missed some games as he has appeared 27 times out of the 29 games Wolves have played in the league.

Wolves have a 50% win ratio when the £100,000 per week midfielder hasn’t featured in the league, losing 1-0 to Leicester City, before beating Chelsea 2-1, thanks to a 90th-minute winner from Pedro Neto.
