- Pedro Neto has been out since April due to a knee injury suffered against Fulham
- The midfielder was expected to be out for six months, but is no closer to returning.
- A 21-year-old has been rehabilitating in Portugal after his injury
- Lobos Chief Medical Dr. Rob Chakraverty will travel to Portugal to assess the situation
Wolves star Pedro Neto will speak with the club’s doctor in Portugal next week and the winger is no closer to returning from the knee injury that has kept him out since February.
Neto damaged his kneecap in the Wolves’ victory at Fulham in April and was expected to be out of play for at least six months.
The 21-year-old has been doing his rehab work in his native Portugal and with a return not yet on the horizon, he will meet with Wolves chief medical officer Dr. Rob Chakraverty, who used to work with England, to plot the way to follow.
Pedro Neto has not played for six months after damaging his knee against Fulham
The Portuguese was one of the bright lights for Wolves last season, scoring five goals in 31 games.
Neto suffered the knee injury in April
The fact that he is no closer to playing again, six months after the injury, is certainly a cause for concern.
Neto had been the bright light for the Wolves in a difficult season prior to his injury and had broken into the entire Portugal squad.
He was becoming one of the best young attackers in Europe and had he stayed in shape it seemed clear that Neto would have been part of his team for Euro 2020.
Although the Wolves are well equipped in wide attacking areas, with Adama Traore, Hwang Hee-chan, Daniel Podence and Francisco Trincao vying for places, a fit Neto would start ahead of them all.
Both player and club will be eager to see signs of progress when Chakraverty reports to boss Bruno Lage.
