Pedro Neto now shares when he’ll be back for Wolves after being stretchered off vs Newcastle

Wolves’ winger Pedro Neto has provided an optimistic injury update via Instagram this afternoon. Yesterday, fans of the club were left dismayed as the 23-year-old had to leave the field during the 2-2 draw against Newcastle United. In that game, Mario Lemina and Hee-Chan Hwang scored for Wolves, with the latter extending his streak of scoring in six consecutive home games.

The match also featured another contentious VAR decision that went against Wolves, but the pivotal moment was undoubtedly Pedro Neto’s injury, which could have significant implications for the team’s season. Mario Lemina, speaking to Sky Sports after the game, highlighted the substantial loss Neto’s injury represents and expressed hope that it wouldn’t turn out to be a severe one. He also conveyed a message of support for his undoubtedly devastated teammate.

In coping with Neto’s absence, whether the injury is serious or not, it’s expected that Wolves will exercise caution and allow him ample time to recover. Consequently, they’ll need to find a replacement to sustain their excellent form, which may involve adjustments to their system. Potential options for this role could include Fabio Silva or Sasa Kalajdzic, although either choice would necessitate some changes in the team’s playing style.

Wolves will be deprived of their most direct threat and the sole player capable of individual moments of brilliance in their team. The task of finding a solution to this challenge now falls to Gary O’Neil.
