Wolves journalist Liam Keen has given an update on Bruno Jordao and his return from injury.
The 23-year-old has very much been a fringe figure at Molineux since his arrival at the club in the summer of 2019, having made just four appearances under former boss Nuno Espirito Santo. Indeed, he has made more appearances for the club’s U23 side than he has for the senior team.
He did manage to have a somewhat more successful time out on loan with Portuguese side FC Famalicão last season in terms of getting some playing time under his belt where he was able to play 11 times, however he suffered an injury whilst with his loan club that derailed not just last season but has also prevented him from making an appearance in 2021/22.
Jordao did post a photo on his Instagram account a few months ago that showed him making a recovery from his injury, and speaking on the E&S Wolves podcast (59:23), Keen was able to provide an update on just how close he is to getting back onto the pitch for Wolves, hinting that his return date is getting nearer and nearer:
“Jordao is back on the grass now, which is good. I don’t think he’s quite in team training… but that’s one I’ll double check he’s definitely on the grass. So he’s getting closer.”
TIF Thoughts on Liam Keen’s comments about Bruno Jordao at Wolves
Have Wolves impressed you so far this season?
Hopefully he is back on the pitch soon, not just for his sake but for the club as well.
Having not played under Bruno Lage yet, it will be interesting to see whether or not he will be more suited to, and therefore get more minutes in, this system as opposed to the one left by his predecessor and whether or not he’ll be able to flourish in it and prove that Wolves were right to buy him.
And as we approach the winter fixture list, as well as the FA Cup at the start of January, where games will start coming thick and fast and clubs will need to rotate players to deal with the congestion, so hopefully he should get those opportunities sooner rather than later.
Because not only will he be able to get some minutes for himself, but he’ll also be helping out the team by being an extra body that they can count on.
