Medical team provide fresh injury update

Wolves’ medical team have provided the following update on Bruno Lage’s squad and other players returning from injury.

Ruben Neves suffered a medial collateral ligament injury to his knee in the match against Leeds United on Friday evening.

He travelled to Portugal with members of the Wolves medical team to see a knee specialist, where the injury was confirmed as uncomplicated.

He will spend this week in Portugal with the Wolves physio before returning to continue his rehabilitation at Compton Park. We are hoping for Ruben to be fit to return in May.

Nelson Semedo has progressed well after suffering a hamstring injury four weeks ago and has started modified training this week.

Ki-Jana Hoever continues to rehabilitate with the medical team after his hamstring injury on 5th March and is progressing as expected.

We have been very pleased with Pedro Neto’s return to the team, but given the long period of time he has had out with his patella injury, it has been necessary to monitor everything very closely.

He has had a couple of recent minor issues unrelated to the initial knee injury and is expected to return to full training next week.

Matija Sarkic is making good progress following his shoulder surgery and continues to rehabilitate with the medical team.

Meritan Shabani is making good progress and has started to take part in under-23 training sessions.
