Sasa Kalajdzic has spoken out about his departure from Wolves, revealing the moment he felt he needed to leave the club.

The striker is now back in the Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt, who have agreed to loan him out till the end of the season. They allegedly waited ‘years’ to sign a guy like him.

They do not have the option to purchase, but conversations will undoubtedly take place after the end of his tenure. Although Kalajdzic is said to seek another shot at the Premier League.

Kalajdzic left Wolves due to a lack of playing time, with manager Gary O’Neil preferring Matheus Cunha and Hwang Hee-chan up front.

Despite returning from a significant knee injury at the start of the season, Kalajdzic only played 157 minutes in the Premier League, which was a fairly low amount.

Kalajdzic has finally revealed when he realized he needed to quit the club…

Sasa Kalajdzic says he knew he needed to leave Wolves following the West Ham defeat.

Following his move to Eintracht, Kalajdzic attended a news conference, and his views were carried by many German publications, including Fuldaer Zeitung.

Kalajdzic stated his delight at joining the club and admitted that the move has been rather easy for him. He has been made to feel welcome and is eager to get started.

After a tough stint at Wolves, the 26-year-old will now try to get things back on track.

Despite not seeing much action at Molineux, Kalajdzic has no grudge toward O’Neil and admits he preferred other players to someone who had just returned from a terrible knee injury.

When discussing his exit, Kalajdzic also mentioned the moment he realized he needed to relocate. Wolves were 2-0 behind at halftime against West Ham United, and O’Neil did not use him in the second half. According to the Fuldaer Zeitung, Kalajdzic stated, “I have to do something else.”

Kalajdzic, who is frustrated, can now kick on.

It was surprising to see Kalajdzic appear so seldom in November and December.

Earlier in the season, he scored late winners against Everton and Bournemouth, indicating that he had something to give.

But, for whatever reason, O’Neil was hesitant to utilize him. His failure to make an impression at West Ham felt like a ‘writing’ on the wall moment.

He was eventually forced to depart on loan since a player of his caliber and originality could not stay on the bench, especially with an international competition approaching.

Hopefully, Wolves can now replace the Austrian, with Che Adams appearing to be the club’s most likely target this month.
