Wanderers have played some excellent football during the opening stages of this season and finally got the reward for all their efforts with a 2-0 win away at Watford.
Last weekend not only brought the first Premier League victory of the season but also the club’s first league goals of the season too, including one from debutant, Hwang Hee-Chan.
Before the Watford game, it would have been understandable to see many among the fanbase getting rather ticked off with not getting any points on the board, but the Wolves faithful have been extremely patient.
Even before the victory, it was clear to see the style that Lage was trying to implement onto his new side and the fans appreciated that.
And that appreciation hasn’t gone unnoticed by the new manager who says he’s extremely grateful for the support he has been shown during his short time at the club.
When asked if he was surprised with how well the fans have taken to him, he said: “No because if they receive well one manager at least they will give the chance for the next one to prove himself. That’s why I said since the beginning I received a big welcome from everyone.”
“I think it was first the time for me and the players to give and we give more than we are receiving.
“We are receiving great support. With that support me and my players are receiving, that’s why I come every morning to work hard to win games for them and for the club.”
Lage also thanked the fans for their patience and hopes to repay them with something special at Molineux.
“They [the fans] have patience and that’s important in football,” he added.
“I talk about what I did with time and tomorrow we are going to play against another club what did with time.
“And also Wolves, what Nuno did here in four years was very, very good with time.
“The main point is that we put in the work and we are judged every week.
“When we play in the middle of the week or every three days we’ll be judged but with time if the people believe in your work you can do something good.
“The only thing I ask of my players is to come with a big ambition every day to training and time, because with these guys we can do something good.”
