Wolves manager Bruno Lage has provided an update on injured defender Yerson Mosquera.

The youngster has been sidelined since September, after suffering a high grade hamstring injury against Tottenham Hotspur.

My Revenge On Ben Foster

It was a cruel blow for the South American.

For he had only just recovered from another hamstring injury he picked up shortly after signing for the club for £4.5 million.

He lasted less than 10 minutes against Spurs, and required surgery for his latest issue.

Mosquera has been hard at work rehabilitating, and was seen in the gym at Compton Park last week.

Supporters hoping he will make an appearance for Wolves before the end of the year will be disappointed though, with Lage recently providing an update on the player.

He said: “He’s recovering. In this year, no (he won’t play) but next year he can start training.


“He’s a fantastic boy. Every day he has a happy face and it’s good for us to see.”

Mosquera’s time will come

It has been a really frustrating start to life at Molineux for Mosquera.

He looked really promising in pre-season, and fans couldn’t wait to see how he’d fare in the game against Spurs.

Injuries in football can happen at any time, and hopefully the starlet will come back stronger.

He might now struggle for minutes in this first season.

By the time he is ready for selection again, Willy Boly and Romain Saiss could be back from AFCON. And Wolves could also sign a new central defender.

But fans should have patience with Mosquera. Wolves felt really good about his signing, and believe he is a gem who has the potential to become ‘top-level’.
