Wolves penny finally dropping as Lage cites tactical switch for Villa scalp

Wolves manager Bruno Lage was delighted with his side’s superb come-from-behind victory over Aston Villa and feels his message is now getting through to the players.

The Molineux outfit fell 2-0 behind to goals from Danny Ings and John McGinn. Ings struck just three minutes into the second period before McGinn doubled the hosts’ advantage on 68 minutes. But the men in gold and black refused to throw in the towel and hit back to win 3-2.

Romain Saiss began the fightback with an 80th-minute strike before Conor Coady equalised five minutes later. It seemed as though the two West Midlands clubs would settle for a point each.

But Ruben Neves’s deflected free-kick on 95 minutes gave the visitors all three at Villa Park. Lage was a happy man after the final whistle.

And he admitted that what he witnessed from the dugout is the reason he works in the Premier League.

“I think it was these games I want to continue [having in] my career in England. It was until the 94th minute,” he told BBC Sport. “It is the kind of environment I want and want to live. We don’t deserve to lose. I don’t think Villa deserve to lose.”

Lage happy to make tough decisions

Wolves lost their first three games of the season all by the only goal of the game. They have responded well, winning four of the next five to sit eighth in the table.

And Lage has lifted the lid on how he masterminded the latest triumph.

“At 2-0 down we put the guys in front,” he added. “It’s more difficult to mark, we created spaces and in the same way, we had some luck. These three points are very good for us.

“We gave a fake nine so I don’t want to give easy marks for strong guys. I went to put men on the back of midfielders.

“They continued to press at 2-0 and I tried to put men on them. That’s what we did. In corners or free-kicks those situations can happen and we scored three goals.”

The Portuguese tactician refused to take too much credit for the win. But he feels Wolves are now beginning to reap the rewards after a change of manager in the summer.

“Every time I believe. It’s easy for me to say now I made the right choice. It’s easy to say ‘I was right’ when you win. But you have to take decisions. The other players who start or come on, help the team to win three points.

“We did three good performances in the first three games but did not get any points. The confidence came with hard work. The players are seeing what we are doing and with victories.”
