Wolverhampton Wanderers’ head of recruitment Kevin Thelwell on Michal Zyro

Michal Zyro has scored three goals in his first three matches for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ head of recruitment Kevin Thelwell has told the Express and Star that Michal Zyro was brought to Molineux to play as a striker.

Zyro has been utilised as a winger for much of his career so far, but the Polish international has been forced to play in a striking role during his time at Molineux so far.

Thelwell insists that this was always Wolves’ plan for the 23-year-old, though, as Kenny Jackett felt that he could lead the line.

“Even though he came in as a wide player, Kenny always had it in mind that Zyro could play up top," Thelwell said. 

Wolves are limited in their options up-front, following the departure of Benik Afobe in January, and an injury to Nouha Dicko.

The Midlands side did move to bring in Joe Mason from Cardiff City in January, but he was the only out-and-out striker the club recruited.

Thelwell admits that Wolves wanted to bring in another front man, but the signs are that Zyro has the potential to be a threat while playing a striker.

Although the former Legia Warsaw man is currently out injured, he did score three goals in his first three appearances for Jackett’s men, and he seems to have made the transition to English football very easily.
