Matheus Nunes is thankful for his time at Wolves but is happy to be at Manchester City. He spent one season at Wolverhampton Wanderers before City completed a move for the midfielder late in the summer transfer window. Though wanting to move to Manchester City is understandable, the way he departed the Midlands club left a sour taste in Wolves fan’s mouths.
In an interview with Joe Bray of Manchester City Evening News, the Portuguese midfielder explained his decision. He said: “I made my decision, but it was an opportunity I couldn’t say no to. Manchester City is a top club with the best players in the world, and the best manager. They won the treble last year. I don’t know if I’d ever get that opportunity again, so I just took my chance. I’ll always be grateful for Wolves giving me that opportunity.”
Nunes also explained his decision not to train before the deal was completed: “I know it may upset some fans about my decision to not train. For that, I’m sorry. It was something, maybe I would have done differently but it was my decision because I couldn’t let this opportunity pass by.”
While the midfielder has apologized for actions before moving to Manchester City, a frosty reception will await Nunes at Molineux. It is to be expected with the nature of his departure from the club.
But Matheus Nunes is now an important part of the Manchester City set-up and has moved on from his time with the Midlands club.
