Wolves fans have been reacting to a suggestion that Willy Boly is set to miss the start of the 2021/22 season.

The central defender is currently on the sidelines nursing a hamstring injury he picked up against Real Betis last month in pre-season.

He lasted just 17 minutes against the Spanish side, and supporters have been concerned about his condition.

That’s because Boly does not have a particularly encouraging record when it comes to fitness and injuries.

According to the Express & Star, Boly has undergone scans and thankfully things are not as bad as first feared.

But it is stated that the Ivorian will likely miss the club’s first Premier League against Leicester City on August 14.

That is a big blow for Bruno Lage, with Boly arguably Wolves’ best centre-back.

The Foxes are a dangerous outfit and have lots of pace up top with the likes of Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Their new signing Patson Daka could also pose a threat.

Having Boly in there for his physicality would be ideal, but it’s looking like he might not be fit.
