'Absolutely outstanding' - Exclusive: Robinson wowed by how 'Brilliant' Wolves star has been
Paul Robinson heaped praise on Wolves midfielder Joao Moutinho after he racked up his first goal of the season against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former Spurs and England No.1 shared he had been impressed by how Moutinho was able to make Wolves’ midfield tick at the age of 33.
Moutinho has played 23 times across all competitions this season and aside from grabbing his first goal of the campaign in the 2-1 win over Bournemouth, he has already racked up seven assists.
Robinson revealed he thought Moutinho was brilliant just for what he had done at Wolves and even added that he thought the 33-year-old had been particularly outstanding in 2019.
“He’s brilliant for what he has done at Wolves,” Robinson told Football Insider.
“At his age as well, I think he is 33-years-old and he stills keeps that midfield ticking.

“I think he played 30+ games in the Premier League last year and may have actually ended up playing more than 40 games? And at his age that just shows how fit he is.
“And he’s now got his goal this year, he’s been contributing assists and I think he’s been absolutely outstanding this year.”
Moutinho joined Nuno Espirito Santo’s side from French giants AS Monaco in July 2018 and has already made 67 appearances for the club.
The 33-year-old, who has 120 caps for Portugal, has racked up way over 100 appearances for each of his previous three clubs; with them being AS Monaco, FC Porto and Sporting Lisbon.
