Bruno Lage reveals Yerson Mosquera impatience at Wolves

Bruno Lage has revealed he has told Yerson Mosquera to be calm, with the youngster having recently returned from injury.

It has been a difficult first season at the club for the young Colombian.

After completing a move to the club from Atletico Nacional, Mosquera had a few bright showings in pre-season for Wolves, leading to excitement from supporters.

But he would suffer a hamstring injury to set him back. He then suffered another hamstring injury in the Carabao Cup game with Tottenham Hotspur in September.

Mosquera sadly lasted just 10 minutes into his debut.

His injury turned out to be ‘high-grade’, and he required surgery.

It was a hugely unfortunate thing for Mosquera, who had been the club’s only centre-back addition in the summer.

The player recently returned to action with the U23s, as he bids to try and prove himself ready for first-team minutes.

His pathway to potential opportunities within Bruno Lage’s team currently has a couple of barriers on it in the form of Willy Boly and Toti Gomes.

Lage has been speaking about Mosquera, and has revealed he’s told him he needs to have patience.

He said (via Birmingham Mail): “We need to understand that Yerson lost one year with us. I talked with him and he knows he lost one year, but now he wants to do everything fast.

“When you want to do everything fast, you are doing nothing. I talked with him and said he needs to be calm and understand that we continue to believe in him a lot.

“He needs to win confidence and do the little things. He cannot do the things that after one year of working and playing you should do. Go for the easy things, win confidence and after those things come naturally.

“It’s important for him now to play a lot. He is training with us and he will play again for the U23s because we believe a lot in him.”

Yerson Mosquera impatience is completely understandable

It is little wonder Mosquera is itching to get back on track at Wolves.

The 2021/22 season is nearing its end, and the youngster has spent most of it on the sidelines.

He’ll undoubtedly be frustrated about the way his first term has gone, but the situation is what it is. Injuries are part and parcel of football.

He just needs to try and be calm about things, as Lage has suggested, and the opportunities will eventually come.

Mosquera looked very impressive in those pre-season outings and has a lot of potential.

It remains to be seen if a Premier League debut will be on the cards before the season is out. One would like to think it will, given Lage has already handed debuts in the competition to Toti Gomes, Luke Cundle and Chem Campbell.
