Bendeguz Bolla scores first goal on loan at Grasshoppers... and it's a screamer

Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Bendeguz Bolla scored his first goal on loan at Grasshoppers yesterday.

The full-back is spending the season on loan with the Swiss side, which is owned by Champions Union HK Holdings, which is headed by Wolves owner Guo Guangchang’s wife.

Bolla has made 10 appearances for the club so far, starting every game in the Swiss Super League.

They currently sit sixth in the table, which is a decent start given they are a newly-promoted side.

It seems Bolla is making a good early impression, and yesterday against FC Sion he really got people talking.

The 21-year-old received the ball about 30 yards from goal from a corner and took one touch before unleashing an absolute thunderbolt. The goal can be found on the Grasshoppers official YouTube channel (1:33), and features some absolutely brilliant commentary.

It was an unbelievable strike from the right-back, who cost Wolves around £800,000 this summer (The Athletic), and all the more sweet for him as Grasshoppers ran out 3-1 winners.

It follows him getting an assist a couple of weeks ago against FC Luzern.

Two more players on loan from Wolves also featured in Toti Gomes and Leo Bonatini. Christian Herc, whom Wolves sold in the summer, also played.

Bolla looking a decent young player

It was a stunning strike from Bolla, and Wolves do appear to have a promising young player on their hands.

He recently caught the eye with his performance for Hungary against England. That was only his third international cap, and first competitive start.

The early signs are good, but it could be a while before he turns out for the Wolves first-team.

Currently Nelson Semedo and Ki-Jana Hoever are fighting for minutes at right-back/right wing-back.
