Morgan Gibbs-White impressed during a pre-season victory over Newcastle United on Wednesday – and some of the Wolverhampton Wanderers fans on Twitter were thrilled with their player’s display.
The 19-year-old helped Wolves beat top-flight rivals Newcastle 4-0 in the Premier League Asia Trophy.
Diogo Jota netted twice in the first-half and Gibbs-White was also on the scoresheet, while Thomas Allan netted a late own goal.
Gibbs-White is a central midfielder by trade, but he played in a more advanced attacking role alongside Jota.
The teenager fired in his goal from outside of the box with his right foot and it was the first time he’s scored for the senior team, albeit in a friendly fixture.
He eased his way into the first-team squad last season under manager Nuno Espirito Santo and ended up playing 31 games across all competitions.
The Englishman was mainly used as a substitute and perhaps him in an attacking role could help his minutes on the pitch.
With European football added into Wolves’ season too, Gibbs-White will be hoping for a busy campaign.
A selection of Wolves supporters on social media liked what they saw from Gibbs-White and believe he’s in for a successful campaign when the season begins.
Here are some Wolves fans praising Gibbs-White:
Glad Gibbs-White got a goal
