Pedro Neto appears to have returned to full training for Wolves, with the player posing for a team photo.
Neto has not made an appearance for Wolves’ first-team since October 1 against West Ham United.
Neto limped off in what turned out to be Bruno Lage’s final game in charge.
And it transpired afterwards that he had suffered ankle ligament damage.
Neto underwent surgery shortly after, and has bene working hard to get back playing again.
Recently, an eagle-eyed supporter was able to get a picture of Neto working with a coach outdoors at Compton Park. That suggested he was closing in on a return
And yesterday, Neto was pictured in his kit with several of his Wolves teammates. The photo was shared by Daniel Podence on Instagram.
Just before Christmas, Julen Lopetegui provided an update on Neto. He said (Birmingham Mail): “I don’t know how long but I hope he is fit as soon as possible because he is a very good player and very important player for us. I think now he has to wait.
“We have to wait for him because he has had surgery and I think maybe one month more before he starts working.”
With Neto apparently now back in full training, it could be that he will be in contention for minutes against Liverpool
There is no game this weekend, with Wolves back in action against the Reds on February 4.
A great sight as Pedro Neto rejoins Wolves teammates in training
This is great to see, and it’s a boost for Wolves back.
He wasn’t in good form at all before his injury. But the Portuguese star will likely be raring to go because of that.
He will want to come back and hit the ground running, and fans will be hopeful he can do that under Lopetegui, who has improved most of the players in the squad already.
Goncalo Guedes has left the club on loan now. And Adama Traore’s form hasn’t been the best in recent weeks.
So Neto coming back for Wolves is timely. Hopefully, the second half of 2022/23 will be his moment.
