Patrick Cutrone has opened up on his exit from Wolves.

The 24-year-old endured a difficult spell at Molineux, making just 14 league appearances in three years.

During that time, Cutrone completed three separate loan spells, with Fiorentina, Valencia and Empoli, respectively.

The Italian initially caught the eye at AC Milan, where he won his first senior cap for his country.

In fact, his form at Milan inspired Wolves to pay around £16million for his services, but it just didn’t work out at Molineux.

This summer, Cutrone left Wolves, joining hometown club Como, who currently play in Serie B, leaving Bruno Lage in need of a striker amid injuries.

After making the move, the forward spoke to La Provincia, opening up on his exit from Wolves.

“Well, it was a curious thing. I had returned home from England for two days off,” he recalled.

“I was a bit uncertain about the future. I came off seasons where I hadn’t been given continuity and it was time to leave permanently. I was in Como one evening with my girlfriend, and I said: what if we could start from here?

“I talked about it with my agent who told me about some club offers, but without any doubt and delay, I wanted Como. There was contact, and it became a reality. Thanks also to the team, who were enthusiastic about this hypothesis.”

Speaking about his form issues in the Midlands, Cutrone added: “First of all I want to say that I don’t blame anyone.

“Having said that, my fundamental problem is that I have often gambled on the loan scheme. And it is not the ideal condition to be valued. Continuity for an attacker is essential.”

Cutrone will now look to regain his best form back in his hometown, working alongside former Arsenal and Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas, who joined the club this summer.
