Bruno Lage Scoops Liga Portugal Prize for January

Bruno Lage is the latest recipient of the Talento Que Marco O Mundo prize. The award was recently created by Liga Portugal in order to highlight and celebrate the brilliant work achieved by Portuguese players or coaches abroad. The coach or player who stood out the most during that month is awarded the Talento que Marca o Mundo or The Talent That Marks the World. The winner is chosen by ambassadors of Liga Portugal, including ex-players and managers such as Nuno Gomes, Paulo Futre and André Villas-Boas.

Working with a relatively thin squad, Lage has got Wolves flying in 7th place, just six points off fourth with two games in hand. Only league leaders Manchester City (16 goals conceded), have conceded less than Wolves’ 17. Players such as Rúben Neves and João Moutinho look refreshed and reenergised under Lage and it is clear to see that this group as a whole are loving playing for Bruno at the moment.

2022 in particular has been brilliant for Lage and Wolves, after a start to the season where they struggled to find the back of the net, they’ve found the back of the 10 times in their last seven matches, recording six wins during that time. With Pedro Neto and Hwang Hee-Chan both recently returning to action, we should see Wolves finding the back of the net even more frequently.

This isn’t the first time his work this season has been recognised, he also won the Premier League Manager of the Month award for January.

Congratulations, Bruno!
