Trincao | On the comeback, his strike and attacking intent

Two minutes and 16 seconds following his introduction at Stamford Bridge, Francisco Trincao’s stunning strike kickstarted Wolves’ impressive comeback against Chelsea, which ended the club’s recent run of defeats.

The Portuguese bent into the top corner to pull a goal back for his side, before Conor Coady grabbed a dramatic equaliser, and was impressed with Wolves’ attacking intent, even before the late drama. The visitors had passed up opportunities to end their goalless run in the first-half, but instead the wide man concluded the club’s run of three games without finding the net with a priceless strike, and was pleased to contribute come full-time.

On the comeback draw

“The target is to win our games. In the end we tried to get the draw, and we did it and we are happy with the result.

“We did a very good first-half. After, they adjusted a little bit and they caused us problems, but after with the substitutions, I think we had a bit more of an offensive game. We tried to do our game like we did in the first-half, and then we had a bit of luck – that’s football.”

On his goal

“We have to create to score goals as strikers. I had the chance, I tried to shoot, and I scored, and that’s it. Sometimes you score with the second chance too.”

On the change of momentum

“We don’t look to their supporters. We try to use our fans in our way, but we are trying to focus to do our plan, what the coach said to us, and try to focus on that.”

On Lage’s absence

“We had a couple of video calls with him before the game and at half-time, and he told us what we needed to do. We are used to his ideas, and it was just one more game.”

On the reaction to the recent form

“It was good, but we have to keep going. We have still a couple of games, and we have to win them, and that’s it. We have three big games and will try to do our best in all of them and try to win for our fans.”
