According to Gary O’Neil, the Wolves’ success is due to their ability to be versatile and adaptable.
Gary O’Neil believes that adaptability and flexibility are essential for success at Wolves.
And the Wolves manager, who took over on the eve of the season, spoke alongside commentator Jamie Carragher on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.
O’Neil went into depth about how he and his team discovered strategies to beat Bournemouth two weeks ago, at the start of the international break.
In addition, the Wolves manager stated how he must be versatile in order to pick up points against teams such as Manchester City.
“Since taking over, the big key for me has been being adaptable and flexible,” he stated.
“My ideal situation would be, and I’d love to take on Man City, press everything, and have 70% of the ball.”
“Will that happen, and will we win the game?” Most likely not.
“So it’s about how far I need to deviate from my ideal to give us the best chance of winning the game.”
“When Man City came to us it was nowhere near my ideal, it was low, we didn’t have much of the ball but it gave us the best chance to put three points on the board.”
O’Neil went into more detail about the Bournemouth game, explaining how Wolves need a variety of options for various Premier League opponents.
