Silvio: Wolves exit was mutual

Released Wolves defender Silvio says his exit from the club was mutual – and that new boss Nuno Espirito Santo didn't get rid of him.

The 29-year-old will officially leave Molineux on Friday when his contract expires after Wolves announced yesterday that they wouldn't be taking up a one-year option.

He became the fifth departure this summer along with Jed Wallace, George Saville, Mike Williamson and James Henry.

And the full back, who made just five appearances in gold and black, took to social media to rubbish reports from his native Portugal that new head coach Nuno was the one who told him to leave.

He insisted that the break was a mutual one, with neither the player nor the club interested in extending Silvio's contract.

Former Atletico Madrid and Benfica defender Silvio said on Instagram: "To clarify things, I was not discharged by coach Nuno Espirito Santo. I just finished the contract of a time I had with the club and both sides (me and the club) for one or other reason did not show interest in renewal.

"I could never be excused from a club that I no longer belonged to, and I could never be excused by a coach who was never my coach.

"And this is it, once again our press is deceiving us with one more false story without worrying about the consequences that might provoke the person in question."
