#PLStories- #NunoEspiritoSanto issues update on Wolves keeper #RuiPatricio after head injury #WOLVESFC

Rui Patricio has regained consciousness and ‘remembers’ the incident which led to his head injury against Liverpool.
The Wolves goalkeeper was left in a heap in the final minutes of the 1-0 defeat to Liverpool after being caught by Conor Coady as the defender tried to prevent Mohamed Salah from scoring.
Salah chipped the ball over Patricio and wheeled away in celebration only for the offside flag to be raised on the far side.
Patricio remained motionless though and replays showed the goalkeeper was hit by Coady as the defender raced back to challenge Salah.
He left the field on a stretcher and received oxygen during several minutes of treatment.

Nuno Espirito Santo was able to confirm Patricio’s situation improved once he’d been escorted from the pitch.
“He’s OK and remembers what happened,” said Nuno. “We have to take the right precautions, but he’s OK. For now, he’s fine.”
Patricio wasn’t immediately taken to hospital after being treated by Wolves’ medical team and they will monitor his situation.
Nuno added: “He’s being assessed by the doctors but they tell me he’s OK. It’s just a case of being aware in the following hours.”
Patricio was replaced by veteran goalkeeper John Ruddy for the final minutes against Liverpool. Wolves had used all three of their substitutes but were allowed to introduce Ruddy due to the new concussion substitute rule.
