Jose Sa names his favourite moment for Wolves so far, as Carl Ikeme returns to Compton

Jose Sa has enjoyed a remarkable debut season for Wolves.

The 29-year-old replaced Rui Patricio at the start of the season, with many people sceptical about the move at the time.

Patricio had shown a high level for Wanderers in his three seasons at Molineux.

So there were big gloves to fill for Sa.

But he’s been a revelation since his arrival, and is undoubtedly a huge reason Wolves still have hopes of European football at this point of the season.

He has routinely put in big performances between the sticks, showing a fantastic all-round game.

He has come in clutch many times, and he has a very good chance of winning Wolves’ Player of the Season award.

There is also surely a strong chance he’ll make it into the PFA Team of the Year.

With no games for Wolves this weekend, Sa has been speaking with former Molineux stopper Carl Ikeme.

The club legend has been back at Compton Park to train this week, and asked Sa some questions for the official website.

He was asked for his favourite moment in a Wolves shirt so far, and said: “The favourite result is when we win.

“All the saves are important because every if you do an easy save, sometimes for the team it’s good to give confidence and to know the goalkeeper is there.

“I can say Manchester United because we won 1-0 and that save from the free-kick in the last minute was important for us.”

Jose Sa has given Wolves a fighting chance of Europe

It was a brilliant save from Sa from Bruno Fernandes against Manchester United right at the death.

It is just one of many occasions where Sa has come in clutch for Wolves this season.

Without any shadow of a doubt, the former Olympiacos star has given Wolves a chance of securing European football next season.

In some games he has made saves that he really ought not to have, given the quality of the chance.

If Wolves do manage to get into the Europa League or Europa Conference League, then it is difficult to look past him for the club’s Player of the Season.
