Kristian Kostrna: Sidelined for at least eight months

The 19-year old full back is set to undergo surgery after sustaining a double fracture in an away match in Portugal.

The official Wolves website said: "Now back in Wolverhampton, Kostrna has undergone a Computerised Tomography scan which has revealed the need for an operation."

The club's head EDS physiotherapist Jazz Sodhi added: "From the video footage of the game we can see Kristian sliding across to intercept a cross, and his studs seem to have got stuck in the grass whilst he went over on it.

"It's one of those that seems quite innocuous at the time but turned out to be very serious - a broken distal tibia and fibula, the two bones in the shin.

"Kristian is at present recuperating in digs and is comfortable.

"It is never easy to predict recovery times, especially prior to surgery, but it is the sort of injury where you are probably looking at an initial expectation of eight months out."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
