‘Unreal’, ‘Could be a big season’: Some Wolves fans amazed by player's display in pre-season defeat

Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered a pre-season defeat on Monday to Spanish club Las Palmas – but some Wolves fans on Twitter were left raving about the performance of Morgan Gibbs-White. 

Wolves continued to get some more minutes in legs with a friendly match. They ended up losing the contest 3-2, however, there were plenty of positives. 

Gibbs-White, who played the second half, got himself on the scoresheet with a superb finish. The 21-year-old’s hit a low finish under the goalkeeper after latching onto a long through ball. 

It looks like he could have a big role to play under new manager Bruno Lage based off the opening three games of pre-season.

The English youngster is a box-to-box central midfielder who’s shown real quality going forward.
