The all-time English Premier League champion of Aston Villa, Gabriel Agbonlahor, is no fan of the transfer policy of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Yesterday, Portugal’s international right-wing Nelson Semedo from Barcelona was signed by the Molineux Stadium team, and now they’ve got enough Portuguese players in their squad to almost launch XI.
Nuno Espirito Santo, the manager of Wolves, obviously loves the idea of signing his countrymen, and after finishing seventh in each of the last two seasons, the club does not complain because he led them to the top-flight.
However, Agbonlahor is not especially pleased that Portuguese players and not English players are often signed, and he challenged their decision to send Morgan Gibbs-White for a loan to Swansea City.
In their lineup against Manchester City on Monday night, Wolves had five Portuguese starters, with two others coming off the bench.
Premier League teams are not allowed in their squad to have more than 17 non-homegrown players, and the Wolves have not yet and will not reach that limit.
The last all-English team in the Premier League was introduced 21 years ago by Villa, and those days are long gone, with Wolves and Co ready to hire as many foreign exports as they need to lead them to success.
