Many Wolves fans have been left to bemoan an update from Tim Spiers on Willy Boly.
As per a tweet from The Athletic journalist, the former FC Porto ace is in a ‘bad way’ as he is suffering from the after-effects of dealing with Covid-19.
Should Wolves start Boly?
Spiers also relayed some comments made by Nuno Espirito Santo on the situation, as the Portuguese boss confirmed that the central defender is in a ‘tough moment’, which is why he was not able to train with the first-team squad.
This will come as yet another blow for the Midlands club given that they have already lost Raul Jimenez and Pedro Neto for large spells, and Boly could well follow them.
The Ivory Coast international ranks highly among his teammates in terms of tackles (1.6), interceptions (1.4), clearances (4.2) and blocks (0.6) averaged in the Premier League so far in the 2020/21 term (Whoscored), and so is clearly an important player for the Wanderers.
Wolves fans on Spiers’ Boly update
These WWFC supporters bemoaned the update on Twitter, with one fan claiming that they were ‘gutted’ while another went as far as to claim that his situation was ‘horrible’:
“Not good, had it in the Autumn and while it cleared up after about 10 days it took weeks before I could start doing proper exercise again, hope he gets well soon, horrible situation for him after the season he’s had”
“Gutted for him his health is more important than anything, just hope he does recover.”
“This is very worrying. Neves has also seemed to really struggle in the last couple of games, seems like both need a long rest to recover!”
“Can this season get any worse?”
“Worried about his long-term prognosis.”
“Precisely why international friendlies and games shouldn’t of gone ahead. Hope he recovers.”
