Wolf defender Willy Boly prepares for more tests after reporting increased heart rate, while Nuno Espirito Santo reveals several of his players are still feeling the effects of Covid-19
- Wolves’ Willy Boly will undergo more testing after reporting an increased heart rate
- The defender also suffered from extreme fatigue after signing Covid-19
- Nuno Espirto Santo said clubs will do more research on the effects on players
- Several players have reported feeling worse for some time after leaving isolation
Willy Boly will undergo further testing this week after the Wolves defender reported an increased heart rate that rules him out as the derby draw with West Bromwich Albion.
Boly would also suffer from extreme fatigue that prevented him from training properly last week, and Wolves hope more checkups this week will shed more light on the problem.
Wolf boss Nuno Espirito Santo revealed that some of his players who have contracted Covid-19 – there have been at least 10 of them over the course of the season – have felt effects some time after leaving their isolation.

Boly missed the games against West Ham and Fulham in April after taking a positive test when returning from international service with Ivory Coast, but mostly struggled in the 4-0 home loss to Burnley on April 25, despite helping Wolves to a zero against Sheffield United eight days earlier.
“It’s something the Premier League and the clubs medical departments will be looking at,” Nuno said ahead of the game against West Brom.
Players may not show any symptoms, but I think they were affected a few weeks after the infection.

‘We believe that after a player has been infected, the 10 days after that are not an issue. The problem is what comes after the virus.
“Of all the physical examinations we’ve done with them, the players say there is a complete absence of energy.”
Boly would rest at home and it is unclear if he will play in the rest of the campaign, especially as Wolves are not under threat of relegation and will not qualify for the European places.
