Jamie Redknapp believes Ruben Neves can reach the pinnacle of football, having been mightily impressed by the Wolves star in a 3-0 win over Everton.
The Portuguese midfielder played a crucial role as the Molineux side made more progress in their late charge towards Champions League football, breezing through Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Neves provided the assist for Diogo Jota’s 74th minute goal to wrap up the clash, winning the ball with a strong tackle on Bernard deep in the Wolves half before firing a pinpoint cross-field pass for Jota to take down and smash low into the net.
