WOLVERHAMPTON, England (Reuters) - Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo was relieved after the club's medical staff said goalkeeper Rui Patricio escaped what initially looked like a serious head injury during their 1-0 Premier League home defeat by Liverpool.

Patricio collided with team mate Conor Coady in the closing stages of the game and had to be carried off on a stretcher after receiving lengthy treatment, having lay on the ground motionlessly with a concussion for several minutes.
