Bruno Jordao back on the grass at Compton Park as recovery continues

Wolves midfielder Bruno Jordao is now training outdoors, as he steps up his recovery from injury.

Jordao has made four appearances for the Wolves first-team so far, and will be hoping to add to that tally under Bruno Lage this term.

Given the lack of midfield additions in the summer, there’s a reasonable chance of him doing that.

The departures of Owen Otasowie and Morgan Gibbs-White certainly boost his chances of getting minutes

Last season he was loaned out to Farmalicao, where he made 11 appearances.

After starting promisingly and playing most of their games, he was unable to feature for them in 2021 due to sustaining an injury just before the turn of the year.

It seems Jordao is potentially nearly available for selection, following his post a few days ago of him doing gym work.

Jordao has taken to Instagram to provide another update.

He is now training outside at Compton Park which is a positive sign. He posted a photo along with the caption ‘Back on the grass with my #XGhosted. Always one step ahead #Xspeedflow #createwithadidas’.

The player uploaded three images with no footballs shown so seemingly he is currently working on his mobility.

Jordao might have something to say this season

Hopefully Jordao can soon fully recover.

These next few months could potentially be an important time for him.

The lack of midfield options may well see Lage turn to him on occasion.

Given Lage’s style of football is very intense and energetic, there is definitely potential for those niggly muscular injuries.

Wolves may well go out and add a new midfielder in January, but until then Jordao might get a chance here and there.
