Players respond as Nelson Semedo confirms on Instagram his season is over for Wolves

Nelson Semedo has confirmed on Instagram that his season is over for Wolves.

The defender was forced off in the second-half against Brighton last Saturday with a hamstring injury.

It is a huge shame for Semedo, who was making only his second appearance back after suffering another hamstring injury against Arsenal in February.

That injury put him on the sidelines for around a month.

He wasn’t missed too much thanks to some fantastic form from Jonny. And the Spaniard could now replace him again at right wing-back for these final four games.

There hasn’t yet been any official word from the club as to the nature of Semedo’s injury.

But it is clearly fairly serious for the player to be unable to play for the rest of the campaign.

Last night Semedo took to Instagram to send a message to fans. He said: “Unfortunately I won’t be able to play this season anymore, I just have to support the team in the games that remain and focus on recovery. See you next season.”

The star, who has three million followers, received hundreds of messages of support from fans.

There were also plenty of comments from his teammates.

Francisco Trincao wrote ‘Juntos’ meaning ‘Together’.

Chiquinho said ‘Vais voltar mais forte’ meaning ‘You will come back stronger’.

Jose Sa said ‘Estamos juntos maninho recupera bem e volta mais forte’ meaning ‘We are together little brother recover well and come back stronger’.

Ruben Neves added ‘Meu craque. You will fly again’ meaning ‘My ace. You will fly again’

And there was also a comment from Leicester City’s £22 million star Ricardo Pereira, who plays with Semedo for Portugal. He wrote ‘Boa recuperação mano’ meaning ‘Good recovery bro’.

A shame for Nelson Semedo after fantastic start to 2021/22, as star says season is over on Instagram

It is such a shame that Semedo has encountered the injury problems he has in 2022 so far.

He was absolutely flying for Wolves before his first injury against Arsenal.

He really was a superb outlet for Wanderers, and seemed to become even more important to the team following the departure of Adama Traore in January.

Hopefully, Wolves will not be too stung by his absence over the next few weeks.

Jonny has been in fine fettle since his return which is encouraging at least.
