Conor Coady raves over Jose Sa again after star's wonderful display against Southampton

Conor Coady has lavished praise on Jose Sa once again, after the goalkeeper put in another fine performance for Wolves.

Sa starred in the 3-1 win over Southampton yesterday, making nine saves in total in the match (via SofaScore).

Seven of those chances for the Saints came from inside the area, meaning Sa had to be at his brilliant best.

It was a brilliant performance and one that really deserved a clean sheet.

But James Ward-Prowse hit a truly world-class free-kick that no goalkeeper on the planet would have saved.

Sa shining for Wolves is something that is now becoming a regular occurrence.

The 28-year-old has looked solid all season and in every aspect of his game.

It is remarkable to think Wolves sold Rui Patricio and brought Sa in for less money. Plaudits must go the Wolves recruitment team on that one.

After the win over the Saints, Coady once again lauded the former Olympiacos ace.

He said (Wolves official website): “Incredible. Incredible goalkeeper, an incredible character and an incredible person. What he brings to our dressing room and what he’s brought to us since he came here is absolutely fantastic.

“We’ve seen today, the presence he gives us, the way he steps off his line. It means you can play a bit higher. He’s an absolute fantastic keeper and it’s a pleasure to have him here.”

Sa was superb, and he further endeared himself to supporters when he ran the whole length of the pitch to join in the celebrations after Coady’s goal – his first in the league at Molineux.

He has clearly settled in extremely quickly and is already an extremely popular figure.

Jose Sa continues to flourish for Wolves as Conor Coady piles on the praise

Southampton put in a pretty good performance yesterday and so Sa had to be on top of his game.

And he had pretty much all the answers. Obviously, the free-kick from Ward-Prowse was something special, so hopefully he isn’t too downbeat about that.

But he is in truly magnificent form right now, and that is giving Wolves a fantastic basis from which to work.

Sa (and his defence) being consistently this good means Bruno Lage’s side are always in with a chance of picking up maximum points, especially as things are now starting to click at the other end.
