Wolves: Jesus Vallejo left Molineux to pursue ‘healthier’ environment

Wolves: Jesus Vallejo left Molineux to pursue ‘healthier’ environment - Premier League

Former Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Jesus Vallejo admitted that he left Molineux in pursuit of a “healthier atmosphere.”

Vallejo hits out

The 23-year-old had an ill-fated loan spell at the Black Country club, only making seven appearances for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side before returning to Real Madrid at the end of last season.

Vallejo was lauded by his former manager Niko Kovac, who described him as a “ridiculously good” defender. But for some reason, his time at Wolves just didn’t work out.

Who is Wolves' PL top goal scorer?

This was echoed by the man himself and told El Pais (via Sport Witness) that there wasn’t “much explanation” as to why he didn’t get regular game time.

The Spanish centre-back added that he left to discover a “healthier atmosphere” and singled out the coaches, not Nuno specifically, as to one of the main factors in his departure.

Transfer Tavern Verdict

Vallejo has to understand that the coaching staff can only guide him so much – and then he has to do his talking on the pitch.

Right from the off, supporters did not take to him and only two months into his own spell, segments of the Molineux faithful said they wouldn’t have missed him if he returned to the Spanish capital early.

That being said, the club and the player have now gone their separate ways, which was the best move for both parties.
