Nelson Semedo sends classy message to Wolves fans after winning Player of the Season award

After being crowned Wolves’ Players’ Player of the Season, defender Nelson Semedo has spoken out.

Wanderers suffered a 3-1 setback in their final home game of the season on Saturday, and then it was time to dole out individual awards.
Mario Lemina was awarded Supporters’ Player of the Season, and after his victory, he shared an emotional message with fans on social media.

Pablo Sarabia won the Goal of the Season title for his outstanding performance against Tottenham Hotspur at Molineux.

Nelson Semedo, chosen Players’ Player of the Season, was also a winner.

Semedo has had a fantastic campaign in 2023/24, starring regularly under Gary O’Neil, and last night, he

I used social media to communicate a message. Wolves’ standout Nelson Semedo reacts to earning Players’ Player of the Season.
Semedo is wrapping up his fourth season at Molineux, and it’s fair to argue that this has been his greatest season yet – something he believes as well. Semedo has made 40 appearances in all competitions, trailing only captain Max Kilman in terms of playing time.

But he’s matured into a really powerful option on the right wide, and it’s no surprise O’Neil is so taken with him.

There has been some conjecture that Semedo may leave this summer, given that he is in the final year of his contract and earns a hefty salary.

Wolves may want to cash in, but only if a pretty large bid comes along. Because it would be very tough to replace him and his experience.
