Bolton Wanderers confirmed that Filipe Morais will not be offered a new deal when his contract with the club ends at the end of the month.

The winger arrived at Macron Stadium in February 2017 and played a key role in helping Wanderers achieve promotion to the Sky Bet Championship at the end of that campaign.

In total, he made 56 appearances for the Whites in all competitions, scoring three goals.

According to The Bolton News, Morais found out about his release after reading a club tweet, announcing that the club will not be offering him a new seal. He had been coaching at his academy over the last few weeks and had not been in contact with any of the Wanderers staff.

Morais signed for Bolton on a free transfer from Bradford City in February 2017, the former Chelsea youth star played a huge part in Bolton’s promotion from League One, managing two goals and supplying 14 assists.

His released in even more confusing as Bolton manager Phil Parkinson said this last month about Filipe Morias “Given the opportunity next season I feel I can kick on and improve. I know the gaffer will want to push on and make a better team, and I can go up another level too.”

But have Bolton and Phil Parkinson made the right decision releasing Morais? And should they have done it in a better manner than him finding out on Twitter?
