'Wow, really excited': Some Wolves fans react to 'stunning' club announcement
Wolves fans have taken to Twitter to react after the club announced the signing of Jose Sa from Olympiakos.
What’s the story?
Well, just a couple of days after Rui Patricio joined Roma, Wolves have already found a replacement for the 97-cap Portugal international.
Sa – who is, unsurprisingly, Portuguese as well – arrives at Molineux in a deal worth £6.8m.
The 28-year-old lands in the Midlands with plenty of top-level experience under his belt.
The shot-stopper has also won numerous trophies with Olympiakos, and was named as the Greek Super League Goalkeeper of the Year in 2020.
Incredible business by Wolves
Admittedly, Patricio was a fantastic goalkeeper who rarely let Wolves down.
However, Bruno Lage’s side have done incredibly well with this deal.
Wolves have sold a 33-year-old for £9.8m, and used the money to buy a replacement who is five years younger.
Sa was also £3m cheaper.
It’s a superb deal for Wolves in more ways than one.
Let’s see how the Wolves fans on Twitter reacted to the club’s announcement…

Admittedly don’t know a great deal about him but the panic amongst the Olympiakos fans when he was ruled out of the second leg against us would suggest he has something about him https://t.co/zhHOlpYAKL— Matt Cook (@Cookmtt1976) July 15, 2021
Probably a huge bowl of ignorance, but isn't this quite a significant downgrade on Patricio? Not trying to start a fight here, but Patricio has 97 matches for Portugal, yet this guy has none and didn't even get to be one of the three going to the Euros?🤷🏻♂️ https://t.co/K6zY2DntPg— Chrsmo (@Chrsmo) July 15, 2021
