Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Wolves legend Steve Bull has named Pedro Neto as his player of the season.
Neto, who joined the Midlands club from Portuguese outfit Braga, has been in excellent form for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side this term. The 21-year-old attacker has scored five goals and provided five assists in the current Premier League campaign, really stepping up in the absence of talisman Raul Jimenez.
As for now, though, Neto remains a Wolves player, and Bull believes he has been the best of the lot this season.
“Neto has been absolutely unbelievable,” the former Wolves striker told FFC in an exclusive interview. “Yeah, [Conor] Coady’s kept the ship together. We miss [Willy] Boly when he’s out because he’s big, strong, vocal and his presence is absolutely brilliant.
“[Ruben] Neves, we’ve missed him loads, but the ever-present for me has got to be Neto this year. I think he’s a class player and I think you’re going to see more of him next season.”
Next up for Wolves and Neto in the Premier League is a tough clash against West Ham. The Hammers are currently fifth in the table, so Nuno will need his Portuguese attacker firing if his side are to take away all three points.
