Chiquinho’s game got off to a good start, getting on the scoresheet for Bruno Lage’s men.

But things took a devastating turn when he collided with a Burnley defender.

The 22-year-old went off injured, with Wolves later offering a further update.

In a statement posted on social media, they wrote: “Chiquinho has been assessed after suffering a knee injury following a collision in yesterday’s friendly.

“Unfortunately, scans confirm an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament and plans are being made to undergo surgery and rehabilitation.

“Stay strong Chiqui, we are with you!”

Daniel Podence and Morgan Gibbs-White were Wolves’ other scorers as they ran out 3-0 winners.

Chiquinho arrived at Molineux from Estoril in January for a fee that could rise to £4.2million.

They will then face Turkish side Besiktas in the Spanish town of La Nucia.
