Wolverhampton Wanderers central midfield player Morgan Gibbs-White is very lucky to have gotten away without a fine following his decision to break lockdown rules to go to a party which was also attended by Love Island contestants among other reality television stars.
As per the Express and Star, the 20-year-old is back training at Compton and is currently working with the rest of the squad in small groups after proving he has not contracted the coronavirus pandemic that has been sweeping across the footballing world.
The report stated that Gibbs-White has not faced a fine for his antics, although he has been made to train from home for a couple of weeks after being caught on camera defying lockdown restrictions. The Molineux club are now drawing a line under the matter as they work towards the return of their season.
Should Gibbs-White have been punished further?
Although the academy product is still a young man and has a lot to learn under manager Nuno Espirito Santo, this does not excuse his behaviour which could potentially be seen as reckless and does shed a bad light on the club’s name.
Nevertheless, Gibbs-White will have to prove himself to his Portuguese coach in training if he wants to break into the starting XI regularly, with Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho currently holding places in the midfield. The Englishman has made just 14 appearances in all competitions so far this season, scoring one goal, according to Transfermarkt.
MGW could well be a promising talent for the future but Wolves should have been more harsh on their man in impressing upon him the seriousness of his misdeeds.
