Dendoncker Monday's programme star

Having proved a vital cog in the Wolves machine since the turn of the year, Leander Dendoncker now takes centre stage in Monday’s official matchday programme.

The Belgian is brilliantly painted by Louise Cobbold on the front cover and he goes up against Newcastle United’s Salomon Rondon.

Dendoncker is also the main feature interview inside, discussing his route from working on a pig farm to representing Belgium at a World Cup last summer.

As well as Dendoncker, supporters can hear from Raul Jimenez, Jonny Otto and Richard Stearman inside, discussing various topics at Molineux and beyond.

After signing for the club permanently, Jonny discusses the five key steps of his career, which moulded him into the player becoming so popular at Wolves.

Here’s what else supporters can find inside the 116-page programme:

  • Nuno Espirito Santo, Conor Coady, Kevin Thelwell and Laurie Dalrymple give their thoughts on Wolves’ recent good run, FA Cup tie with Bristol City and warm-weather training camp.
  • There’s a thorough look at Newcastle United ahead of their visit to Molineux, including the opposition view and a look at the links between the two clubs.
  • Jimenez is joined by Harry Beasley and Darren Ryan for the latest edition of Hot Topics, which covers Peter Crouch’s Premier League return and Martin O’Neill at Nottingham Forest.
  • The Wolves Academy section is full of content, including interviews with graduate Peter Smith and Elliot Piggott-Smith, who recently took up a new role with club.
  • Stearman takes the role of the former player completing In Focus, covering his favourite memories from wearing old gold and black.
  • Foz’s Favourites comes from a memorable New Year’s Day victory against Newcastle United, where Steve Bull famously netted four goals, while the retro programme comes from the same game.
  • Newcastle legend Alan Shearer is the Last Word on how Wolves is progressing in the Premier League and Raul Jimenez’s fast adaption to English football.
  • Furthermore, there’s the latest nine stickers to help fill the official sticker album and a Young Wolves pull out, full of games and activities for youngsters heading to Molineux.

All this and much more is available inside the £3.50 programme, available from around Molineux pre-match.
