Leander Dendoncker hits stunner as Wolves drop new training video

Wolves have dropped a new training video, as the squad continues its preparations for the 2022/23 season.

It is a chance for everyone to stake their claims to be in the manager’s first starting XI of the season against Leeds United in just a few weeks’ time.

Wolves fans had perhaps been hoping to see a few more new faces by this point.

So far, only Nathan Collins has come in from Burnley.

The hope is that the club will add some more new faces in time to feature in some of the pre-season games, which start from next week.

This evening, Wolves dropped a new video from a training session.

The players can be seen participating in possession-based drills, gym work and cooling off in ice baths and the pool.

Perhaps the highlight was a stunning strike from Leander Dendoncker.

The Belgian unleashed an unstoppable curling effort into the top corner, which is something Wolves fans would love to see more of from him.

Dendoncker has been dealt a lot of criticism during his time at Molineux.

Sometimes he can be ineffective, but in certain games he really has his uses.

Arguably, he is sometimes the victim of his own versatility, something he himself has previously suggested.

One thing he undoubtedly could improve on though is his goalscoring prowess.

12 goals in 154 games for the club is not particularly great, especially considering he does actually get into decent goalscoring positions.

A big season coming up for Leander Dendoncker

For a lot of people, the jury is still out on Dendoncker.

Arguably, he does lack consistency for Wolves and that is frustrating given how good he can be.

Hopefully, he’ll take his game to a different level in 2022/23.

It would be really good to see him become a little more clinical too. A similar player he could perhaps seek to emulate is Tomas Soucek of West Ham United.

The pair are physically quite similar and perform similar roles. But the Czech Republic international chips in with more goals, scoring 18 in 101 for the Hammers.
