Lots of Wolves fans have reacted on Twitter to the latest quotes from Patrick Cutrone on his time in England more specifically Nuno Espirito Santo.
The young striker, 22, failed to make the grade while in the Black Country and was subsequently only ever selected for three league starts under the Portuguese boss.
After moving from AC Milan in the summer, he lasted just six months before agreeing on an 18-month loan deal with Fiorentina, who have the option of signing the player permanently during his spell there.
The player has now shed a bit more light on what seemed to go wrong at Molineux.
Despite still being contracted by the club, he has come out and implied to Gazzetta dello Sport that he hasn’t been able to have a chance due to the coach preferring to rely on his ‘loyalists’.
He said (via Sport Witness): “I went to Wolverhampton with a lot of enthusiasm. The fans loved me, they dedicated a chant to me. In the end, I scored three goals from few minutes played, but I found a manager who preferred to rely on his loyalists”.
Could you see Cutrone playing for Wolves again?
Definitely, he's still our player, remember
Maybe, it depends how his loan spell goes
No. I can't imagine he would want to come back
Cutrone is not wrong by saying that the fans loved him. Despite not really playing much, they very much took to him and plenty were gutted to see him leave. That was until now, anyway.
Lots of fans responded to the quote, relayed by @TalkingWolves on Twitter, suggesting that this is exactly the reason why he wasn’t kept on at the club.

Football is all about opinions, I wish him well but won’t lose any sleep over him leaving. Maybe in time he may prove us wrong in letting him go but Nuno wants a happy camp, A sulking young Italian isn’t going help. Cutrone’s maturity is alot less than Netto’s.

So far Cutrone already seems to be having more joy in Tuscany than he did in Wolverhampton. Despite only being back for less than a month, he has been apart of every league and cup game since he joined, and was even able to bag in the club’s 2-1 win over Atalanta in the Coppa Italia.
