Wolves boss Lage left disappointed after Man City defeat

Wolves boss Bruno Lage was left disappointed after their 3-0 defeat at home to Manchester City.

Nathan Collins was sent off in the first-half.

Lage said, “[It went wrong] not just in the first half, but the first minute. When a team like City, who played on Wednesday night, score in the first minute it is hard to take. In between the first two goals we were there, but they scored in a transition.

“The most important thing to say, even with the problems we had in the first half, the team had personality to play the game. We tried to come back in the second half to equalise and have more of the ball and we had that in the first 20-25 minutes and our plan was to score and put pressure on them but they scored, but that was our best moment in the game. we came with a good plan but it is hard when you have one less man. We understand that the team are growing up, we can see good signs.

“It is not about Nathan Collins. Sometimes it happens and the same situations, I saw one like that yesterday in the Aston Villa game against Southampton and nothing happened, today it was a red card. It is about continuing to play, Ruben Neves played very well. We did that for five minutes initially to just try and work out how to play, but we found the solution on the pitch.”
