Just two months into his career at Molineux, Slawomir Peszko has been confined to the treatment room at Compton Park as he recovers from medial ligament damage.
The Pole picked up the injury during the recent defeat against Crystal Palace and it came at a time he felt that he was starting to play his best football since his arrival.
He reflected: “It wasn’t good news for me to pick up such an injury because I haven’t been here for too long and I felt that I was playing better and better.
“It’s going to take around three months to heal so I should be back in around January. I realised when it happened that it was serious – it was very painful. But the Crystal Palace player came into the dressing room after the game to apologise for the tackle.”
So, injuries apart, how is Slawomir finding life in England and, in particular, Wolverhampton?
“I like life in England but it’s difficult at the moment because I can’t drive. I have to go everywhere from Birmingham in a taxi.
“I have been here before against Manchester City and for an under 21 international but just for the games – I didn’t stay here for long.
“I like it at Wolverhampton and I think that the supporters are really nice. They are always stopping me in the street and talking about football.”
Of his current predicament, he adds: “Having to wear a brace is very restrictive and I will have it on for around six weeks. I’m having to spend six hours a day in the treatment room which is hard. The time seems to drag and it’s a long day. I just want to get back.
“The boys have been very friendly since I’ve been here and since I’ve been injured, every day they ask me how I’m feeling. It has been very easy for me to settle into the club.
“After the last international break we seemed to improve a lot scoring more goals and keeping clean sheets.
“I’m going back home tonight for five days which means that I can have a little rest mentally but will look forward to getting back and carrying on with my recovery .”
