Toti | ‘I always want more minutes’

Toti is pleased to be getting minutes with Wolves under-23s as the defender helped the development side to a Black Country Derby victory over West Bromwich Albion.

As one of the more experienced members of James Collins’ squad, having made two Premier League appearances since returning from his loan spell at Grasshopper Club Zurich in January, the 23-year-old admits he is happy continuing to learn as part of the first-team while getting minutes into his legs with the under-23s.

On three points in the derby

“It was a very good team performance today. It’s always good to be here and get some minutes, and also help the under-23s with this win.

“It’s always good to have the clean sheet and not suffer the goals. I’m really happy with what the guys did on the pitch today, scoring the four goals.

“It’s really good and I also came close to getting a goal, almost, but maybe next time that will come. We’ll see.”

On a confident under-23 squad

“We went into the game with a lot of confidence, since the first minute of the game. In the first-half, we made a couple of little mistakes, but we fixed it immediately for the second-half.

“They’re really good players. I feel comfortable in myself playing with them, so I have confidence in them and it’s all been really good.”

On getting minutes in the tank

“I always want more minutes, and for me, if it’s here with the under-23s or with the first-team, I will always give the best of myself.

“It’s really important to me and I think it’s important for all of the players to get minutes in their legs and to play. For me, it’s important. Even if it’s here with the under-23s, I will always give myself the best to help them.”

On learning at Wolves

“I don’t know how many games I will play with them [the under-23s], but like I said, if I stay with them, I will always give my best. I want to improve myself and I’m trying to learn here and with the first-team, with the guys who are playing.

“When I don’t play, I’m always trying to look at what they do and next time, when I have that chance on the pitch, I will try to do the same as them.”
