Wolverhampton Wanderers are gearing up for Fulham on Saturday in our final Molineux game of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign before the curtain comes down properly when we travel to Anfield to face Liverpool on the final day.
With Wolves continuing to battle for seventh place in the table and maybe a European adventure next season, Fulham have only pride to play for, but speaking to the E&S during buildup to the game this week, legend in the making Diogo Jota admitted that he really didn’t care what happened in the next two matches, because ultimately it wouldn’t change was has been a ‘great’ first season back in the top flight.
“What matters is that we’ve done a great season and nothing will change in the last two games. For a team playing its first time in the first division, the results are excellent. At the moment I hope the season goes on! But two games to go, we’ll give our best to finish seventh.”
I’m sure his attitude will be slightly different as kickoff nears as we’ll want to finish as high as possible and with two wins to really upset the apple cart, but the point he makes is the right one. Fans were hoping for a more comfortable return to the Premier League, in comparison to others sides given the players we’ve brought in, but few genuinely thought the campaign would be as good as it has been.
Enjoy it for what it has been and accept it’s a first step with ups and downs to come in the future. Seventh spot would be great but it would be a bonus.
