Hennessey returns

Hennessey returns

Almost three months ahead of schedule Wolves keeper Wayne Hennessey made his return to the football pitch yesterday.

After being told it would take at least nine months to recover from, Hennessey featured for Wolves Under-21's last night against Chelsea, just six months after surgery to repair his ruptured cruciate ligament.

He was named as Wolves only over-age player in the side and he featured for the first 45 minutes and appears to have reacted well to the game time.

The 25-year-old however still has quite a long way to go to be challenging Carl Ikeme for the number one shirt, but as first hurdles go, this was a good one.

"Wayne deserves every credit because he`s worked all through the summer with hardly any time off, which was his choice because he wanted to be back as early as possible," Wolves goalkeeping coach Pat Mountain told the Express & Star.

He continued: "And he`ll come back better for it - he`ll be more appreciative of his position, and because he`s worked so hard, he`s a bigger, stronger person, physically and mentally.

"He`s done brilliantly - six months is actually quite a short time for this injury, so it`s a tribute to the medical staff at the club for the work they`ve done.

"But the biggest tribute of all goes to Wayne because he`s worked so hard to earn the right to be back on the pitch after six months."

Hennessey is yet to complete his rehabilitation. He does join in with training fully, but still requires a couple of days rest between sessions to build his fitness up.

But he could be in contention to return at some stage over the next month.

Vital Wolves Comment: Congratulations to Hennessey for fighting to get past that first hurdle, we all look forward to watching you hit that next hurdle and return back to the first team fold soon.

Can I have the name and telephone number of his consultant as mine says that even with the operation I will always walk with a pronounced limp (pronounced L I M P). Even if Wayne can walk, he will not be able to walk back into the team, given the outstanding performances of Ikeme.
