Wolves fans have their say on Patrick Cutrone

Wolves fans have been discussing Patrick Cutrone, after the striker scored his second goal for Empoli at the weekend.

The hope is that the player will feature heavily in 2021/22, after he endured a season of upheaval last term.

Cutrone started at Fiorentina and had been due to spend the whole campaign there, following on from when he joined in January 2020.

But a lack of game time saw Wolves recall him.

He then spent a couple of weeks back at Molineux to provide cover, before the club swooped to sign Willian Jose on loan.

Following the arrival of the Brazilian, Cutrone was loaned out to Valencia. He only made seven appearances and didn’t start once. And he didn’t make any of the club’s final five matchday squads.

Cutrone came back to Wolves and actually looked quite sharp in pre-season ahead of 2021/22. Some wondered if a change of head coach might have meant a change of fortune for the player.

So far for the Serie A outfit, Cutrone has made 15 appearances. On Saturday, he scored only his second goal for the club in really strange fashion, with a Napoli defender heading the ball against the back of his head.

Wolves are probably hoping Cutrone can have a season like Rafa Mir did with SC Huesca in 2021/22.

But it has not been a particularly fruitful start.

There is a long way to go yet, but it is currently difficult to see Cutrone returning to Molineux for the 2022/23 season.

Cutrone has tended to divide the opinion of Wolves fans.

Some feel for him and believe he’s never really had a proper chance. Others have suggested he doesn’t want to play for the club.

On social media yesterday, fans were again discussing the 23-year-old following his game-winning goal against Napoli.

It seems that most simply don’t see Cutrone playing for Wolves in the future.

Him leaving after Lage challenged him to prove his worth, coupled with an underwhelming stint at Empoli so far means the answer is clear for some:
