Wolves fans have been reacting to reports Renat Dadashov has sustained a cruciate knee ligament injury.

The striker is currently on loan at Swiss outfit Grasshoppers, but now faces a lengthy period on the sidelines.

The 21-year-old has already undergone surgery.

Dadashov had been hoping to make his mark over in Switzerland, having not played too many games at Pacos de Ferreira in 2019/20.

The Azerbaijan international made just nine appearances during his loan at the Portuguese outfit.

Getting experience of senior football is vitally important for Dadashov, who has caught the eye for the Wolves U23s after signing for the club last summer from Estoril.

There are very high hopes that the player can perhaps some day become a successor to Raul Jimenez at Molineux.

But that day will not come any time soon, with surgery to repair a cruciate ligament a footballer’s worst nightmare.

Wolves fans were dismayed to learn of Dadashov’s injury blow, and wished the striker a speedy recovery on social media:
