The Wolves boss might have let him go, but he has no doubt Enobakhare has a big future despite making mistakes.
“Bright is a special player, he was with us in the Championship and he was in the starting XI for those first games,” he told the Express and Star.
“He has so much talent, but Bright was one of the players that we were not able to be with as much as we wanted to keep on improving him.
“At the same time, I love him very much and it was a pleasure to work with him.
“I think he can be a top player, but he made mistakes and sometimes things don’t work out.”
Enobakhare scored six goals in 18 games for the Sky Blues after joining on loan in January last year.
