‘Superb,’ ‘Outstanding’: some Wolves fans applaud Morgan Gibbs-White’s impactful performance

With just under half an hour to go in last night’s clash at Molineux, Wolverhampton Wanderers were down 3-0 against Tottenham Hotspur.

The situation seemed less than ideal for 18-year-old Morgan Gibbs-White to enter the fray, yet when Nuno threw on the youngster, the match flipped on its head.

The English central midfielder had a massive impact on Wolves’ performance, nearly leading the newly-promoted side to a fantastic comeback point.

Although the match ended in a 3-2 defeat, Wolves supporters hailed Gibbs-White’s substitute display, applauding the teenager’s superb vision, excellent ball-retention, and composure in a high-stakes encounter.

 

The 18-year-old impressed the Wolves faithful to such an extent that some tipped Gibbs-White to gain a consistent starting spot. The central midfield partnership of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho was called into question by some supporters that wondered if the two Portuguese midfielders were too similar to effectively complement one another.

In the end, it was a remarkable half-hour display from Morgan Gibbs-White, a player that appears well on his way to becoming a future England star.

His impactful performance was one to remember and he received the perfect reception at full-time from the Molineux faithful to conclude his eventful night.
