He had to wait until December for his big chance but there was no banging on the door by the midfielder from Passchendaele
Given it was hailed as a coup when Wolves signed Leander Dendoncker last summer, it was surprising to see him sitting on the bench during the first half of the season. Nuno Espírito Santo is known for rarely changing a winning team but there must have been times when Dendoncker wondered whether moving to Molineux was a mistake. There were even rumours the Belgian would ask to leave in January.
Yet it is not in Dendoncker’s nature to lose his cool. The 23‑year‑old grew up in Passchendaele, a small village known as a first world war battlefield, and he has never been the type to throw his weight around. He used his time on the bench to study how Nuno’s 3-4-3 system worked and made sure he stayed fit and focused. There was no question of him banging on the manager’s door.
