'I’ll be honest': After Ruben Neves, another Wolves player fires shots at Arsenal

Ruben Neves had a go at how Arsenal celebrated after beating Wolves on Thursday and his teammate Conor Coady has fired a few more shots now.

The Gunners went to Molineux earlier this week having failed to win a single game since the turn of the year. Wolves fancied their chances, but we started the game really well and went in at the break with a deserved lead.

Gabriel Martinelli saw a red card in the 69th minute and that’s when Wolves found some joy. They threw everything they had at us, but we dug deep, defended brilliantly and picked up a fantastic victory.

Conor Coady joins Ruben Neves in firing shots at Arsenal

After Neves accused Arsenal of celebrating too hard, Coady too has had his say and the Wolves skipper seems just as irked as his Portuguese teammate.

Coady told BBC 5 Live, as quoted by Football London: “We’ve seen them [the celebrations], we heard them. We’ve obviously seen the whole thing, I know Ruben has obviously spoken out after it. They celebrated quite hard, didn’t they?

“Listen, we spoke about it all week, we prepared right, we made sure we were ready and I actually thought we played quite well if I’m being honest. We had the ball, we created different things, but listen Arsenal are a top side.

“So we’ve seen the celebrations, I’ll be honest with you, from our point of view, we really didn’t like them.”

The Insider’s View:

When a team shows the character, mentality and togetherness that we did in the final 25 minutes of the game on Thursday, we have every right to celebrate however we want.

Wolves tried and tried and even came close to scoring once or twice. However, they failed and the better side won the game. Neves and Coady can talk all they want, but the result will not change.

The Wanderers won’t have to wait too long to try and get their revenge. We play them again in two weeks time and we really hope that we’ll batter them and celebrate even harder than we did on Thursday.
