It would be unfair to label Polish attacker Michal Zyro a flop. Wolverhampton Wanderers signed him from Legia Warsaw in 2016. The striker impressed early on at the club. He scored three goals in his first three games with the club. Kenny Jackett’s man bagged two goals on his home debut and Wolves fans felt they had snapped up a real gem.
But one word you could use to describe Zyro would be unlucky. First, there was a calf injury which put him out of action for six weeks. Then, in a 2-1 win over MK Dons he suffered a horrific knee injury after a strong challenge from Antony Kay.
The result was multiple ligament damage and Zyro ended up spending 17 months on the sidelines.
A lot changed during his time out of the game. Wolves were purchased by the Fosun International group and a host of top names arrived at the club. Wolves were, of course, also promoted last season. Zyro came up short of elevation during a disappointing loan spell with Charlton Athletic in League One.
This summer, with no chance of first-team football at Molineux, he was allowed a return to Poland. The 26-year-old joined Pogon Szczecin on loan for the season.
“After this match, we are not left without problems. The biggest one is the injury of Michał Żyro. He relapsed his previous groin injury.”
However, that has now hit the skids as well. Zyro was finally ready for action after another injury lay-off. However, just nine minutes after coming on for Pogon, he was stretchered out of the game with a groin injury.
It seems as though Zyro is not yet past his injury problems and his last chance of showing Wolves what he has may be slipping him by. With his contract expiring in the summer, it would take a miracle for him to salvage a career at the Molineux.
