Owen Otasowie still yet to make Club Brugge debut after leaving Wolves

Former Wolves defender Owen Otasowie still hasn’t made his debut for the Club Brugge first-team.

The Belgian league is more than halfway done now, with most teams in the division having played 20 matches.

It is, therefore, a real surprise that Otasowie has still not turned out for his new club yet.

The 20-year-old left Molineux in the summer to embark on a new chapter, after failing to kick on from his Premier League debut this time last year against Chelsea.

He did well that evening in a false nine role, but opportunities would prove hard to come by under Nuno Espirito Santo.

In the end, he finished 2020/21 with just six appearances to his name.

The club took the decision to sell Otasowie in August, with his sale bringing in around £3.5 million.

Many were curious to see how Otasowie would fare in Belgium with Brugge, who would feature in the Champions League.

And many are still curious, because Otasowie still hasn’t made his debut for Brugge’s first-team.

The youngster has made the bench twice in the league, but not once since September 18.

Strangely, he was actually named amongst the substitutes for the final Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain. But he didn’t get on.

Not the start Owen Otasowie would have wanted after leaving Wolves for Club Brugge

The fact Otasowie still hasn’t made his first-team debut for Club Brugge is a surprise.

He has featured for the club’s NXT side so, seemingly, there hasn’t been any injury problems.

Although a recent report from Walfoot noted that Otasowie was recently brought off in an NXT match at the 50-minute mark that was ‘not for tactical reasons’.

Whatever is going on, some Wolves fans would not have seen this coming when he left.

At Wolves, he was one of the most naturally gifted youngsters at the club. So the fact he still hasn’t turned out for the first-team after £3.5 million transfer makes it a strange situation.
