Theo Corbeanu sends message after completing first season in professional football

Wolves youngster Theo Corbeanu says ‘there is much more to come’ from him, after finishing his first full season in professional football.

The Canada international has been with MK Dons since January, having started the campaign with Sheffield Wednesday.

Wolves opted to move Corbeanu to a different club, after teenager had been operating as a wing-back at Hillsborough.

He had made 18 appearances for the Owls, scoring two goals and making three assists.

For MK Dons, he made 17 appearances, scoring one goal and making one assist.

His final appearance for the club came on Monday in the second leg of the play-off semi-final against Wycombe Wanderers.

MK Dons won 1-0, but having lost the first leg 2-0, they will be staying in League One for 2022/23.

Wycombe will now face Corbeanu’s former club Wednesday in the final.

Taking to social media, the 19-year-old posted a reflective message: “First pro season complete. A season filled with lessons along with many ups and downs.

“I consider myself grateful to experience some of the things that I did, but there’s much more to come. It’s only the beginning and I’m looking forward to seeing what this next season has in store.”

Whatever is in store for Corbeanu, he will be hoping it gives him the best possible chance of making Canada’s World Cup squad for Qatar.

Back in March, the nation sealed their place at the finals for the first time since 1986.

Wolves should facilitate another loan move for Corbeanu in 2022/23

It would probably be in both the club and Corbeanu’s best interests if the teenager headed out on loan again next season.

If he is to go to Qatar, then it is really important that he is playing regularly.

He will probably not get that at Wolves just yet, especially given the talk that Wolves could have a busy summer on the transfer front.

Corbeanu is still only 19. He has made good progress having made 29 appearances in League One this term.

The idea was for him to get regular minutes and also toughen up. Former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo stated around this time a year ago that he had talent, but had to ‘become stronger’ (via Express & Star).

Perhaps a stint with a Championship club would be the next logical step.
