Hopes are high for young Fabio Silva, after a productive debut campaign for Wolverhampton Wanderers last season.

The teenager joined the club for big money last year.

He ended up featuring far more than was intended due to the awful head injury suffered by Raul Jimenez in November.

The Mexican would go on to miss the rest of the season, meaning chances were plentiful for Silva.

Willian Jose was signed on loan in January and for a while, the Brazilian was starting in the team as the lone striker.

But Silva eventually ousted the 29-year-old.

He finished the campaign with four goals and three assists to his name.

In the eyes of many, Silva is showing real promise, but physically, there is a lot of developing to do.

Often, Silva would easily be pushed off the ball.

 

Things like that are perhaps to be expected given how young he is.

According to the Birmingham Mail though, the club have now got Silva on a personal plan to improve his strength.

Apparently, he has been sticking to that plan ‘religiously’.

Silva claim is exciting

That Silva is now working hard to improve his strength is brilliant news.

You can see he has a great football brain, and his movement – especially in the box – is really good for one so young.

If he can improve from a physicality standpoint, then fans should be very excited.

He should do, as Silva does seem to have a brilliant work ethic.
