Wolves fitness coach Carlos Cachada has hailed Romain Saiss, after the defender appeared to suggest his time at the club was coming to an end.
The Morocco international is out of contract at the end of the current season.
In an interview with Sky Sports, the 32-year-old stated that his future is ‘more or less’ decided, and admitted an exit was more likely than him staying.
Saiss has been a regular in the starting XI for Wolves this season.
He has really been a favourite of Bruno Lage’s, and showed some tremendous form in the first half of the season especially.
His level has dipped slightly in recent weeks.
But overall it has still been a really solid campaign from the star, who has now been at the club for just shy of six years.
Cachada took the press conference yesterday, with Tony Roberts and Bruno Lage both unavailable through having Covid-19, and he heaped praise on the star.
He said (via Express & Star): “We’re talking about a special player with six years at the club.
“He gives everything for the club and is a good character to be around.
“A top player. Every team will miss this kind of player but lets see how things go and how the season finishes and then we’ll take the decision.
“It’s always important to have these kind of players around. It helps a lot with his teammates.
“A part of his knowledge and quality, if you have this kind of character it helps the atmosphere you can create for your group.”
Romain Saiss’ character and leadership would be missed at Wolves
It is looking as though Saiss will be moving on to a new challenge this summer.
There is no doubt that Wolves can upgrade on him.
But he would also be missed, given what he brings in terms of his character and leadership.
He’s also shown himself to be a good, solid and versatile footballer.
He does have a mistake in him, but Saiss has always given his all for Wolves and played for the badge. As a £3 million signing nearly six years ago, Wolves can safely say they got themselves a bargain.
