Owen Otasowie yet to feature for Club Brugge following Wolves exit

There were some Wolverhampton Wanderers fans who were a little disappointed about the sale of Owen Otasowie.

The Belgian champions reportedly paid around £3.5 million to Wolves for his services.

It is supposed to be a fresh start for the USA international.

Otasowie was unable to kick on at Wolves after making his Premier League debut against Chelsea last December.

Nuno Espirito Santo continually overlooked him in favour of more senior options.

The decision was made that he would be sold, and it was off to a Champions League club he went.

Unfortunately for Otasowie, it hasn’t been the start he’d have hoped for.

The 20-year-old has not yet turned out for Brugge’s first-team.

He has made only two of their matchday squads so far, with manager Philippe Clement seemingly reluctant to play him up to now.

Blauwzwartfans.be reported at the end of last month that Otasowie struggled to make an impression for Club NXT (Club Brugge’s reserves), and described his start to life at the club as ‘unfortunate’.

Before the international break, HLN reported that Otasowie was substituted off playing for NXT at around the half-hour mark after picking up a yellow card and ‘flirting with a red’.

Wolves’ decision so far vindicated

So it appears Otasowie is enduring a bit of a tough start at his new club.

To have not yet appeared for the first-team by now is something of a surprise.

Hopefully he can get it together soon.

But for now, it seems as though Wolves have been vindicated in their decision to sell.
