Jamie Redknapp raves about Pedro Neto as winger returns to Wolves bench for Leicester clash

Jamie Redknapp has raved about Pedro Neto, with the winger returning to Wolves’ matchday squad against Leicester City.

The 22-year-old is finally back in the picture for Wanderers after 10 months on the sidelines.

Neto fractured his patella last season, and it has been a gruelling journey back to full fitness.

Last season, the youngster was by far and away Wolves’ best player.

He ended up winning the club’s Player of the Year award, scoring five goals and making five assists in the league.

Wolves haven’t necessarily missed Neto and have been going really well in the Premier League this term.

But his return is undoubtedly a big boost, and the hope is that he will be able to improve Wolves in the final third.

Prior to kick-off, Jamie Redknapp spoke in glowing terms about Neto following his return to the squad.

He said on Sky Sports: “He’s one of the best (young) talents in world football this kid. He’s an amazing player. He picked up an injury at the wrong time for him but also for Wolves

“It’s (probably) been tough for him seeing the team do so well without him. They’re a team that defend really well but they’re not full of goals so to have him back is going to be so important. It might take time, but I’m a massive fan of him.

“One-on-one, takes people on, gets people off their seats, very special talent.”

Pedro Neto return is fantastic news for Wolves as he returns to matchday squad vs Leicester

It is brilliant seeing Neto back in the picture for Wolves.

Of course, it might take him some time to get back up to speed given how long he has been out.

But his return is just so exciting.

When you think about the effect Lage has had on practically every player at Molineux, it’s very exciting to think about how Neto could eventually develop.
