Wolves fans gutted with Meritan Shabani injury update

Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Meritan Shabani has sustained a serious injury – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are “gutted” by the update.

The 20-year-old moved to Molineux in the summer after leaving Bayern Munich and he previously played three first-team games for the German giants.

He’s been adapting to English football with Wolves’ Under-23s side so far this campaign, but was drafted into the senior squad in midweek for the Carabao Cup third round victory over Rochdale.

Shabani made his senior debut for Wolves off the bench during the second-half of that game, but unfortunately had to be stretched off shortly after being introduced.

It was a nightmare scenario for the German centre-forward who joins extremely highly-rated.

Manager Nuno Espirito Santo confirmed (official website) on Friday that the striker will have a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering an ACL injury.

“Shabani unfortunately had a serious injury to his knee, so he’s going to be out for a long time,” Nuno said.

“It’s an ACL, he had a problem with his ligaments. It’s a tough injury, but he’s a young boy and strong boy and will come through and come back stronger.”

A selection of Wolves supporters on social media are disappointed by the injury update on Shabani.

With the team competing on both domestic and European fronts this season, there is an opportunity for a number of players to force their way into the squad and try get an opportunity with the first-team.

But Shabani will need to go back to the drawing board after a serious injury and he will have to remain one for the future.

Here are some Wolves fans on Shabani:
