The countdown has begun for the 26-year-old Cypriot international's return to action
One of the most unlucky footballers in last year's 2022-2023 season was Christos Wheeler. The left back of APOEL was seriously injured during the first half in the return match with Omonia (on 3/3/2023), just before the final phase of a season in which he had made excellent appearances and had won the trust of his coaches.
The 26-year-old (6-29-1997) extreme defender suffered a cruciate ligament tear and underwent surgery on March 15. He continues his rehabilitation with double training sessions every day. It is estimated that he will be ready to train normally with the team after mid-September. We remind you that on May 31, 2023, his collaboration with APOEL, which began in January 2020, ended.
According to information on our website, Wheeler – APOEL relations are again very good and indeed as far as we know, a new collaboration is not excluded. After the very encouraging display of 19-year-old Brazilian Zefte Vital, it would be ideal for the Blues to have another reliable option on the left side of defense with a Cypriot player they know and know them well.
Christos Wheeler seems to be an ideal solution.
