Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Romain Saiss has given his thoughts about his glorious chance against Manchester United on Sunday.

Bruno Lage’s side lost the game 1-0 at Molineux.

That was despite the hosts dominating in terms of possession and chances created.

It was a great performance from Wolves, who simply have to be a bit more ruthless.

It was always going to be a tough start, but the Wolves players have applied themselves well so far.

There are some more favourable fixtures coming up after the international break so hopefully, the team can start getting some points on the board.

Sunday’s defeat to United could have been so different.

The best chance of the game undoubtedly fell to £3 million man Saiss (Express & Star) in the 69th minute from a Wolves corner.


His initial header from point-blank range was clawed back by David De Gea, who then saved a second effort from the Moroccan.

Speaking about the chance, Saiss said: “I was sad after that because it was a really good chance for me to score and then I saw the clip of the video in the dressing room after and it was a fantastic save from the goalkeeper.

“I thought I had got the shot on him, as I tried to shoot at the side and he saved it. He was really quick to save the ball like this.”

Wolves have been really unlucky

Some will argue Saiss should have scored. But the ball came back very quickly to him and of course, instinctive finishing is not really what he does as a defensive-minded player.

It really was an unbelievable save from De Gea.

Wolves have genuinely been really unlucky in these first few weeks of the new season.

The goals and the points are bound to come if the players keep up this level after the international break.
