Ruben Neves | A letter to the fans

As Ruben Neves closes the chapter on his Wolves career, the captain shares a personal letter written to all those who have played a part in his six years at Molineux.


Six seasons. 253 games.

Champions of the Championship, five years of Premier League football, an FA Cup semi-final, our European adventure, and some huge wins.

30 goals, 13 assists and thousands of memories which will last forever.

What an unbelievable journey.

I’ve worked with so many great people along the way. From the kit men to the kitchen staff, ground staff to the board members. From the physios to coaches, technical staff and media. A big thank you to every single person I had the chance to work with.

Every single moment was unforgettable.

To all of the players who were part of the club during the last six years, you are friends for life. The way we protected the pack was really incredible.

The way we worked together, the way we fought for the club, what we achieved and all the moments we spent together was unbelievable.

There are no words to describe our dressing room, with a team spirit that I’ve never experienced before. And then to become captain for the final year made me so proud.

Thank you, guys.

What we did will be in the club’s history forever.

To our fans. I cannot thank you enough for the welcome. I cannot thank you enough for the way you treated me and mainly for the way you adopted my family as your own.

The way you support the team is unreal.

I was surprised when I came here at the start of the Championship season, but now, I will be one of you.

A massive fan. For life.

It really feels like home here and we will never, ever forget you.

Six years is a long way. A long time. My kids grew up in Wolverhampton and they were so happy here. Me and my lovely wife will never forget the time we had here as a family, and I hope we can keep this big connection.

I leave as a player, but I will always be a wolf. No matter what.

Thank you for everything, and I will see you in the South Bank – one day.

‘Wolves ay we’.

Your captain, Ruben Neves.
