Wolves youngster Fabio Silva has taken to Twitter to send a defiant message, amid his current struggles.

The teenager has not been featuring much at all this season.

So far under Bruno Lage, he has only made nine appearances, for a total of 168 minutes on the pitch for the first-team.

The new manager seemingly does not fully trust Silva yet, using Raul Jimenez at almost every turn so far.

Silva did score for the U23s against Sunderland back in September. But he then had a tough outing against Southampton.

And on Tuesday night, Silva was in action for the Portugal U21s.

Rui Jorge’s side won 6-0 against Cyprus, but Silva missed a penalty in the game and struggled to make an impact.

His strike partner Goncalo Ramos really outshone him with the hat-trick he scored.

Some fans noted that Silva was really trying his hardest, but nothing was really coming off.


It seems the player acknowledges he is in a tough moment, as he responded to somebody’s post on Twitter last night.

User @AaronBartonUK wrote: “One image from the game yesterday which tells 1,000 words. Fábio Silva tried everything but his confidence just looks shot to pieces at the moment.

“A missed penalty didn’t help. This was him after Portugal scored, he’s having a rough time at the moment. Head up, Fab.”

Silva replied ‘O sol voltará a brilhar’, which translates to ‘the sun will shine again’.

Silva needs support amid Wolves struggles as he sends Twitter message

It is definitely tough for Silva right now, and a real test of his mentality.

He isn’t playing, and the chances he does get, he can’t seem to make the most of.

There is definitely a player in there. He showed glimpses of that last season.

Silva is lacking confidence right now but he seems to acknowledge that.

He will be itching to turn things around, and will require big support from the Wolves fans in the coming games to do so.
