Fado on the Line

Rui Silva aims to make his debut with Betis (19:00) against the ultra-Portuguese Wolverhampton, who replaced Nuno and Rui Patricio with two compatriots, Bruno Lage and José Sá.


Bruno Lage, 45-year-old coach who won the League and the Super Cup with Benfica two seasons ago, is the last Portuguese to arrive at the Wolverhampton Wanderers with whom superagent Jorge Mendes collaborates so much and so prolifically. Lage replaces former Valencian player Nuno, who after four good years at Wolves has just signed for Tottenham. Wolverhampton have been sounding more like fado than pop for several seasons and perhaps for that reason they currently enjoy a higher than average status in the Premier League. He was 13th last season after qualifying for Europe two seasons ago and being ready (he was 7th) during 2019-20.

Del Wolves the Portuguese international goalkeeper Rui Patricio left a few days ago for Roma with Mourinho, and another compatriot, José Sá, has just arrived, who could well make his debut this afternoon at La Línea (7:00 p.m., Betis TV) against Betis . Ruben Neves, Pedro Neto ... There are many footballers from the neighboring country who play for big teams during this market. Lage started badly, with a defeat against the weak Crewe Alexandra of the English third, and wants to straighten the course and regain the illusion this afternoon against Pellegrini's.

The Chilean coach is still waiting for reinforcements but he makes the most of what he has, although he is missing internationals Guido Rodríguez, Claudio Bravo, Lainez and Miranda. His team beat (0-4) Winterthur of the Swiss second division in the first friendly of the preseason. Borja, Juanmi and Loren scored, a trio of forwards who this afternoon hope to keep their gunpowder, which would be very good news for the Verdiblancos because it would mean that their aim has improved. By the way, the debut of the Portuguese goalkeeper Rui Silva is expected, who joined the Heliopolitan group just after the stage in Helvetic lands.
