Leo Bonatini is out on loan at Grasshoppers and has not played for Wolves since 2018.

But in an interview with the Athletic, he says he will always be a fan of the club.

The affection he has for the club is clear and he suggested he regretted the timing of his loan exit to join Nottingham Forest.

“Since day one in England I’ve always had support from Wolves. I’m always watching Wolves’ games, I feel like now I’m a fan. Bruno Lage is doing well, I’m glad Raul is back 100 per cent and also Hwang Hee-chan is doing good.

“Players want to play. Maybe I regret to leave Wolves at that time, if I’d stayed I could have more opportunities. But this is like when you leave your garage, if you turn left you never know what’s on the right.

“I’m happy where I am now. Maybe one day I can be back there. The Championship season will always be one of the best in my career. It was amazing. Every game, the atmospheres, the high level of football.

 

“The Aston Villa game (a memorable 2-0 win in which Bonatini scored), my friends were messaged me saying I’d be playing against John Terry, to beat them was special, scoring was amazing.

“A few weeks ago Wolves posted the goal on Instagram and I felt the feeling like I did that day. I’ll always be a Wolves fan.”

Elsewhere in the interview, he also said that Wolves had a real gem coming through in the shape of Toti.

It looks unlikely that Bonatini can resurrect his Wolves career but there is no bitterness there.

Wolves fans would likely wish him the best in Switzerland and hope he scores goals on a regular basis.
