Sky Sports pundit David Edwards has hailed the performances of Jose Sa since his arrival at Wolves.

Former Wolves midfielder Edwards used his Express and Star column to praise the goalkeeper signed by Bruno Lage.

He replaced Rui Patricio, and there might have been fears that Wolves were downgrading, swapping a 100-cap international goalkeeper for an uncapped one.

But Edwards has been impressed with Sa’s command of his penalty area and swift adaptation to English football.

“I thought the back three were excellent (on Saturday against Leeds) and the goalkeeper Jose Sa has been one of Wolves’ best players,” he wrote.

“I don’t think he came with the biggest of reputations and even considering how good Rui Patricio was for a few years, I think Sa has taken it to another level.


“His distribution and the commandment of his area are really impressive. They looked good at the back.”

Sa has taken no time to adjust to English football and has helped Lage implement his ideas.

He has shown the benefit of his Champions League and Europa League experience.

Sa has produced strong performances and been needed in recent weeks as Wolves have sat back to defend results.

It was not down to Sa that Leeds equalised late on on Saturday, and he made an impressive stop from Joe Gelhardt in the second half.
