“Quite stressful” – Journalist reacts to bad news coming out of Wolves

Pedro Neto will be unavailable for Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Gary O’Neil’s upcoming fixtures.
According to journalist Dean Jones of GIVEMESPORT, Wolverhampton Wanderers star Pedro Neto has left manager Gary O’Neil in a ‘quite stressful’ situation following a major development at Molineux.

Although Wolves had to deal with the departures of Ruben Neves, Matheus Nunes, and Raul Jimenez as they recouped nearly £160 million in the summer transfer window, Neto has played a key role in a promising start to the season.

However, having been integral since O’Neil was appointed as Wanderers’ head coach following Julen Lopetegui’s decision to resign just days before the season began, there are fears that he will be sidelined for an extended period.

Neto set to miss key clashes through injury

According to MailOnline, Wolves are hopeful that Neto will be able to return to action before the end of the year after being stretchered off during the second half of last weekend’s draw with Newcastle United due to a hamstring injury.

According to the report, the winger could be out for six weeks, giving him a chance to be ready for the busy holiday season, despite his claim on social media that he will be out for ‘a few weeks’.

Neto’s absence will be a huge blow to Wolves, as he had started the season in scintillating form, contributing eight goals in ten appearances, and O’Neil will be forced to look for an alternative creative spark.

Moxley recently told GIVEMESPORT that it would take a bid in excess of £70 million for Wanderers to even consider selling their talisman in the upcoming transfer window.

Neto’s injury also came just days after he revealed that he will not seek a move away from Wolves in the middle of the season, having informed sporting director Matt Hobbs that he will not seek a new challenge away from the West Midlands, despite Arsenal being among his long-term admirers.

The Gunners have sent scouts to watch the 23-year-old in action on several occasions this season, with a potential January swoop in mind, while Aston Villa, Atletico Madrid, and Saudi Pro League clubs are also interested.

However, Neto’s insistence that he is happy at Wolves, combined with the fact that his £50,000-per-week contract has just under four years left on it, has put his current employers in a strong negotiating position ahead of any interested parties.

Dean Jones update – Pedro Neto

Jones believes O’Neil has been put in a difficult position as a result of Neto’s injury, which will keep him out of several Premier League games.

The transfer insider is aware that a number of admirers have gathered around the former Braga man, emphasizing how much he will be missed while he is out of action.


“Neto has been a huge part of the reason why Wolves have been able to upset the critics so far this season. A lot of people were expecting them to be in a relegation scrap from day one. You could see early on in the season why that might be the case, but Neto’s performances have been really, really impressive.

“He has obviously been linked with big-money moves and huge clubs, but he has come out in an interview and said he’ll be sticking around because he has got no intention of pushing for a transfer away from Wolves.

“But, as soon as he picks up a knock, obviously it’s quite stressful because he is the best player in that team. Wolves need players like him to be performing regularly to allow them to continue the sort of form they’ve been on.”
