John Richards has heaped praise on Pedro Neto for his outstanding start to the new season with Wolves. Neto, who has been a breath of fresh air this season, has already provided five assists and netted an impressive goal against Luton Town. This resurgence in Neto’s form is especially heartening considering his recent injury troubles over the past two years.
Currently, whenever Neto gets the ball, he poses a significant threat on the field, much to the delight of Wolves fans. Richards, who shares the exhilaration of those watching Neto, has lauded the Portuguese player as “outstanding.” According to Richards, Neto is excelling and consistently baffling defenders to create scoring opportunities.
Several former Wolves players, such as Steve Bull, Dave Edwards, and Andy Thompson, have also recently praised Neto’s performances. Neto’s thriving form is a source of joy for everyone associated with Wolves.
Neto’s journey to this remarkable comeback was marked by adversity, with a devastating knee injury in April 2021 that sidelined him for 10 months, causing him to miss the Euros. Another setback came in October 2022, when he suffered a severe ankle injury, dashing his hopes of participating in the World Cup in Qatar. However, despite these cruel setbacks, Neto is now back and flourishing for Wolves, resembling the player he was before his initial injury, which is genuinely exciting.
