Europa League goal and new contract delights Vinagre

Ruben Vinagre is delighted to have ended his week by signing a new five-year deal with Wolves and scoring his first goal at Molineux in the Europa League.

After the left wing-back committed his long-term future to the club on Wednesday he followed that up by netting a crucial goal in Wolves’ 2-0 first leg victory over Crusaders on Thursday night.

The 20-year-old will now look ahead to the second qualifying round second leg in Belfast next week as Wolves hope to make it into the next round and a chance to play either FC Pyunik or FK Jablonec.

On his successful week

“It’s a good week. I’m very happy to score my first goal in the Europa League and now I have to keep going.”

On heading to Belfast for second leg

“I have a second game at Crusaders next week and we are expecting another good game in the next play-off.”

On aims for this season

“I think it will be a very good season. Let’s work so that this season is better than last season, and every season is better than the last.”
