Rui Patrício’s wellness will be evaluated by Wolves medical personnel on Tuesday to evaluate his development following the head injury suffered in Monday night’s defeat by Liverpool.
The goalkeeper was brought off on a stretcher after being inadvertently captured by the ideal knee of his colleague Conor Coady while the set challenged Mohamed Salah.
Nuno Espírito Santo recommended later on that the injury was not as bad as very first feared, with Patrício mindful and relatively completely knowledgeable about what had actually occurred. He did not need medical facility treatment and was referred to as being “chatty and unwinded” as he left Molineux on Monday prior to being driven house by the club’s physio.
Wolves will continue to monitor him carefully and will follow the Football Association Gradual Go Back To Play (GRTP) procedures.
Nuno stated after the video game: “We need to take the ideal preventative measures however he’s OKAY. It was huge knock to his head. The next two days are necessary. We need to wait. However he remains in excellent hands, being evaluated by the medical professionals and they inform me he is OKAY.”
Wolves are all too knowledgeable about the risk of head injury, as their striker Raúl Jiménez continues to recuperate from a fractured skull suffered versus Toolbox in November.
