Striker Saša Kalajdžić situation at Wolverhampton Wanderer is ‘a bit worrying’ for Austria ahead of their participation in Euro 2024 next summer.
That’s according to journalist Peter Linden, who looks at the player today and how he seems incapable of convincing Wolves manager Gary O’Neil.
He explains that Kalajdžić continues to only be handed ‘short-time work’ by O’Neill this season, with him yet to complete two games in the league.
His longest time on the pitch so far was the 61 minutes he managed in a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United at the beginning of November.
They were ‘apparently too few to convince’ O’Neil to give him more chances, with this week’s win over Burnley seeing him remain on the bench and only allowed to warm up.
He appears to be number four on the striker list and even when Hee-Chan Hwang departs in January for the Asian Games, there’s no guarantee Kalajdžić will be handed extra game time given the vast difference between the two players and their playing style.
That’s bad news for Austria, who would want the striker fit and firing at Wolves as he’ll be a key player for them at the Euros in Germany.
Whether that means there’s a decision to be made in the January transfer window remains to be seen but it seems in the striker’s homeland at least, the situation is starting to cause some concern.
