Joleon Lescott praised the qualities of defender Willy Boly after Wolverhampton Wanderers romped to a convincing victory on Thursday night in the Europa League.
Wolves dispatched Spanish outfit Espanyol 4-0 at Molineux in the first leg of Europa League Round of 32 tie.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side almost have one foot in the next round ahead of the second leg next week in Spain and made light work of an opposite that are sat bottom in La Liga.
Diogo Jota stole the headlines with his hat-trick against Espanyol and that remarkably followed on from another hat-trick against Besiktas in the club’s previous European outing.
Meanwhile, midfielder Ruben Neves added another stunning long-range goal to his collection and attention now turns to Norwich City in the Premier League.
Lescott, who started his playing career at Wolves, felt that Boly deserved big credit despite some other star performances.
“He’s outstanding. His physical presence is unique and he has the agility and ability to get back [defensively]. He’s been instrumental in this team since he came to the club,”
