24-year-old star issues a bittered warning to Wolves against complacency ahead of Sheffield United’s clash…

Toti Gomes has warned Wolves against complacency as the side look to continue their momentum.

Now going five games unbeaten, with Toti a key figure in the last four, Wolves are once again looking up the table.

But with struggling Sheffield United next up, and then a home game with Spurs before the international break, Toti is calling on his side to stay focused and carry their momentum into the break.

“It’s been good,” Toti said on the spirit in the camp.

“We’ve been getting the form and everything has been going well, but we want more and more.

“We’ve faced some really tough opponents, especially here at home, Man City, Newcastle and some other opponents, but we’ve been taking it game by game and we want to win this kind of game, not just draw against these kinds of teams.

“We’re happy with the position, but we want more, of course. Now, we will have Sheffield and then we will have Tottenham before another international break, and we will try to have the most points possible.”

The defender has been a rock at the back but turned creator last weekend when he set up Hwang Hee-chan’s equaliser with some neat dribbling.

“When I started to play football, I was a winger and a striker, and I’ve been a left-back as well, so this kind of movement I can do it well sometimes,” Toti added. “After the game they were praising me and it was a good moment, for sure, but I’m just happy that I could assist my team-mate, Channy. I’m happy for him as well because he makes the final work. It’s not just about me, it’s about my whole team. But defending is what I enjoy the most. For a defender, the best thing for me is having a clean sheet and not suffering goals, doing the tackles and everything that I have to do to stop the opponent and to help the team at the back, especially.”

Since Toti has come into the team, Wolves have played a hybrid system between a back five and a back four, with sees Toti either play centre-back or left-back.

And the 24-year-old believes his versatility has been a strength.
