Jose Sa comments after going off with an injury against Liverpool

Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa has stated that he thinks he’s ‘OK’, after he went off with an injury against Liverpool.

The star was back between the sticks for Wolves in yesterday’s final Premier League game of the season, having been rested against Norwich City.

But Sa would only play the first-half, after picking up a knee issue just before half-time.

The 29-year-old did not reappear for the second 45, with John Ruddy replacing him for what may or may not have been his final appearance in Wolves colours. The 35-year-old is out of contract this summer, and it remains to be seen whether he will extend.

After the game, Sa spoke to the club’s YouTube channel and gave an encouraging update.

He said: “I think I’m OK, but I will see when I arrive in Portugal and we will see what happened.”

Although yesterday was disappointing in that Wolves dropped a couple of places in the table to 10th, Sa’s season is certainly a big positive for the club.

The star came in as a replacement for Rui Patricio, and has had a really solid first campaign for Wanderers.

His first half of 2021/22 was better than his second, but Sa has generally been very good, and he was recently named the Supporters’ and Players’ Player of the Season.

Reflecting on his first term, Sa said: “It was good. We are looking for more.”

Encouraging update from Jose Sa after picking up injury against Liverpool

Wolves fans will await an update from medical staff, but Sa does not seem to be too concerned by his injury.

Hopefully, it will not be something that impacts his pre-season ahead of 2021/22.

Wanderers need their number one in top form going into next season.

It will be a challenge for him to maintain his high standards from his first campaign, but fans will have every faith in him to deliver given what a great all-round game he has.
