Back in 2017, Rúben Neves shocked much of the football world when he turned down a plethora of big clubs to join Wolves, who were then in the Championship.

Now, the 23-year-old thinks it’s one of the best decisions he’s ever made.

In an interview with Sport TV, the 18-time Portugal international admitted that he’s felt at home at Wolves long before the rest of the Portuguese contingent arrived.

“I think it’s an easy club to adapt to. I felt it when I arrived. I think everyone feels it when they arrive,” Rúben Neves said.

“Not only because there are many Portuguese players, but because we have a fantastic dressing room.

“I said this once and I think I can repeat it: I will hardly ever find a dressing room like this again. Very united players. From many countries, but all focused on one goal. And everyone wants the best for the club.”

Fellow Portuguese youngsters Fábio Silva and Vitinha joined Wolves this summer and Ruben Neves claims he’s been helping them get settled at the club.

“Not only on the pitch, about our style of play, but also outside, in relation to the city. And we’re always here to help.

“We want them to feel good, to feel at home, and I think we have achieved that. It seems to me that their adaptation has been very good.

“So now it’s time to enjoy the club and the Premier League, which is an excellent league to evolve as players.”

Wolves are currently sixth in the Premier League table and will host Newcastle on Sunday.
