Rui Patricio update provided by Nuno Espirito Santo after horror head injury

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has delivered a positive update about goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

The goalkeeper was carried off on a stretcher late on in their defeat to Liverpool.

Patricio ran out of his six-yard box to close down Mohamed Salah when he collided with his team-mate Conor Coady.

He was down for a lengthy period before he was replaced by John Ruddy.

But Nuno has revealed that the Portuguese star is conscious and has total clarity about the incident.

He told Sky Sports: “We just had an update now. He’s OK, he’s conscious, he remembers what happens. The doctor tells us he’s OK.

“It was a collision with Coady, I think the knee of Coady on the head, but he’s OK.

“We’ve spoken already and thank god he’s OK.

“All these situations, when it’s a concussion in the head, gets all of us worried. But he’s OK and he’s going to recover.”

It is the second time Wolves have had to deal with such a horrific incident this season.

Striker Raul Jimenez clashed with David Luiz during Wolves’ win at Arsenal back in November.

The incident saw changes to the concussion protocols with the Mexican forward still absent as he recovers from surgery.

Diogo Jota scored the winner for the Reds against his former club, but was in a subdued mood after the contest.

“I think life is more important and I hope it is nothing too serious,” he said about his former team-mate.
