Wolves midfielder Diogo Jota has urged his team to relax as they prepare to head to Leicester City on Saturday. The Midlands outfit are not expected to struggle this season, despite earning promotion to the top flight last year.They started the campaign with a 2-2 draw against Everton last weekend and the Foxes are set to give them another tough test at King Power Stadium.
Jota admits coach Nuno Santo has urged them to stop trying as hard and he believes a more relaxed approach will stand them in good stead.He told the Express and Star: “(Nuno said) just to calm down because he noticed it was the first game for many of us – for him as well – in the Premier League, now we want to relax and prepare and do our best.
“It’s the first game, it’s always different, maybe you try to rush and not do things so well as we usually did. Now we’re going to improve on that.
“We want to get out again as soon as possible, we want to get the games on our legs and get the rhythm [as not having it is] an advantage to our opponents that are here already.
“For me last week was like a dream coming true, I always watched Premier League matches during my childhood and it was a very special game. Now it’s in the past and we want to get better.”
