The Lowdown: Wolves suffer blow…
Bruno Lage, it’s safe to say, has been dealt a real blow over his new striker with news recently coming to light of a serious injury.
Kalajdzic made his debut in Wolves’ 1-0 win over Southampton on Saturday but was hauled off at half time after feeling pain in his knee, with scans then revealing that the Austrian suffered an ACL problem.
Anterior cruciate injuries traditionally take between six to nine months to heal depending on their severity, dealing a real blow to Kalajdzic, who could now miss the majority of this Premier League campaign.
The Latest: Jones reacts…
Speaking to GiveMeSport, journalist Jones has responded to this development and calls it ‘devastating’ for both the player and Wolves.
He also says Kalajdzic will be ‘absolutely crushed’ by this news.
“It’s absolutely devastating for the player and the club.
“He looks a really good fit for the Premier League and he will be absolutely crushed by this news.”
The Verdict: Troubling times…
Lage is now really short of depth up front, prompting the Molineux side to turn to the free agent market.
In a bid to strengthen their options, Wolves have been linked with Bosman swoops for the likes of Andy Carroll and Diego Costa, with supporters hoping they find a striker solution sooner rather than later.
Kalajdzic, given his size and ability, would have been a fine option for this campaign but it could now be a while before his return to action.
