Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have been left recoiling this morning after the club provided an injury update on Yerson Mosquera.
The defender made his competitive debut last week against Tottenham Hotspur, but lasted less than 10 minutes.
He had to be replaced by Conor Coady, and fans have been waiting for news on the central defender.
Today, there is word about the Colombian starlet’s condition – and it is not good.
According to the club, Mosquera is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
The update read: “Unfortunately, Yerson suffered a high-grade hamstring injury in the Carabao Cup game with Tottenham Hotspur and is undergoing surgery this week in London.
“It is too early to give a return date as there is such variation in how quickly players heal and recover fitness, but as a guide 4-5 months is usual.
It comes after Lage had initially suggested the player could be out for around two months.
It is a hammer blow for the player, who had looked very promising in pre-season.
Wolves fans had been looking forward to finally seeing him play after recovering from a hamstring injury picked up against Coventry City.
But they will now be made to wait.
On social media, some fans have been expressing their dismay over the news from the club this morning:
Cheers, crying now
