Patricio eager to improve at Wolves

16th April 2019, 10:37 by Tom Hill

Wolves star Rui Patricio says he is still learning and has enjoyed his development in the Premier League so far.

Patricio is one of the most experienced keepers in the English game but he continues to try and improve under Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

The 31-year-old has played in 32 of Wolves' 33 Premier League games so far and he has helped the club compete for a spot in the Europa League.

The Marrazes-born stopper has represented Portugal in two World Cups and three European Championships, winning the latter in 2016.

Despite his success around the world, Patricio admits he is still learning new tricks at Molineux.

He told the Express and Star: "Every match, every training session is an opportunity for me to evolve.

"So, at the end of my first year here, I've noticed some rapid growth because it's a new competition, everything is completely different.

"The game is different, the tactics are different, the technique is different. It's been a very good experience. I take advantage of every game and of every training session to grow, to evolve.

"I will continue to do that. In every training session, I want to develop. I'm happy with the initial phase that I've had here. Of course, I'm very happy to be doing well but I still want to do better. I want to adapt further.

"Every day in every training session, in every game, I want to do better."
