Wolverhampton lost for the third consecutive time in the Premier League, this time against Crystal Palace, in the middle of Molineux. At the end of the match, Bruno Lage explained the reason why Ki-Jana Hoever was injured in the first half and took the opportunity to criticize the attitude of the youngest during training.
“Ki is a good example. The children want everything to happen now. When they’re out and their teammate is playing, they don’t train with the intensity they should, nor do they prepare when the opportunity arises. Then she appears, it happens… I have too many kids in my team who sometimes don’t train like they should or don’t prepare like they should,” he began by saying, press conference.
“I told them on the first day of my arrival: ‘They are here and they have to continue working. The first objective must be to work and improve”. Injuries can happen, it’s true, but this one happened because Ki was unprepared. Didn’t train hard. This is a warning to everyone. I don’t waste time with people who don’t work hard every day to improve. There are 37-year-old players who, when they are not playing, as is the case with João [Moutinho]arrive at training and go to the ground, fight for balls in the air as if to say ‘look at me'”, he added.
