Wolverhampton Wanderers look set for a low key finish to the 2020/21 season.
There should not be any relegation concerns considering the upcoming fixtures for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, but qualifying for the Europa League looks a step too far.
Wolves currently sit 13th in the table, and there, or a place either side, will likely be where the club finishes.
It’s a good opportunity, one would imagine, for Nuno to start looking at some players who could have something different to offer.
One man who’s been knocking at the door for a chance is young Theo Corbeanu.
The 18-year-old has enjoyed a fine season with the U23s, and his form has led to Nuno calling him into his matchday squad on several occasions already.
Corbeanu might have got to experience a first-team matchday, but he is yet to actually make his debut.
After impressing for Canada over the international break, which included him scoring against Bermuda just four minutes into his debut, it just feels like he warrants a chance.
Nuno should turn to the talented youngster
Corbeanu seems like he’s just about ready to take the first-team leap at Molineux.
Obviously, he shouldn’t get a run in the team as a starter, but from what he’s showcased in 2020/21 he surely deserves to at least make his debut before the end of the campaign.
Veteran Canada midfielder Samuel Piette of Corbeanu (via Coast Reporter): “First time I saw him on the pitch, I couldn’t tell you if he was left-footed or right-footed, which is an amazing skill. I’m not even sure he knows as well, to be fair.
“He’s really mature for his age, outside the pitch but on the pitch as well.”
Clearly, Corbeanu has a lot of quality and promise, so hopefully Nuno soon gives him a show of faith.
