Wolves star Chiquinho checks in with fans as winger continues recovery from knee injury

Wolves winger Chiquinho has checked in with Wolves fans with a post on social media, as he continues his recovery from a knee injury.

The youngster will not be featuring for Wanderers this season, after suffering an horrendous injury during a pre-season friendly match against Burnley in the summer.

Chiquinho underwent knee surgery soon after.

The injury involved multiple ligaments and so his lay-off will be long. Wanderers said back in September that they were anticipating having him back for the next pre-season.

Chiquinho suffering such a devastating injury was massively unfortunate.

Wolves had an awful end to last season, but he was one of the shining lights.

He really impressed Wolves fans with his pace, dribbling and directness in the wide positions, and some felt he was a bit like Adama Traore, who was out on loan at Barcelona.

Many were excited to see him kick on in 2022/23. But he has been robbed of a chance to continue his development.

Chiquinho checked in with supporters via his social media on Wednesday.

He uploaded a short video clip of him on the treadmill walking at a fairly brisk pace. He captioned the post ‘One more step’.

A long road to recovery for Wolves ace Chiquinho, as star posts on social media

It is good to see Chiquinho getting some steps in in the Wolves gym.

By some accounts, the youngster’s injury was really, really serious. Journalist Liam Keen said a few months ago that doctors had given assurances to Chiquinho that he would play football again.

That just indicates how bad it was. There was also a very gruesome photo circulating on social media a few months ago.

So to see Chiquinho back walking on a treadmill is encouraging.

But he has a very long road ahead of him.

Keen reiterated recently that the player will be back around the time of the next pre-season, so it’ll be a big test of his mental strength. Hopefully he will come back stronger and more determined to excel than ever.
