Sako: It's A Team Effort

Winger hopes there is more to come

Man of the moment Bakary Sako said it was a team effort which got Wolves through at Blackburn on Saturday as they shrugged off a host of missing players to secure another three points.

 

It may have been another spectacular goal from Sako – a fourth for the season - which secured victory, but he was quick to direct praise onto the whole squad after Wolves came through a mass of injuries to register the win.

 

“We’re all working hard to get the club back into the Premier League so promotion is what we’re all hoping for,” he said.

 

“We’re working very hard towards that aim so that we can be back there next season.

 

“The team can still get a lot better because we’ve got a lot of injuries, so when everyone is fit we will be stronger.

 

“Everyone can play to a high standard – we saw that on Saturday – and we have a very good squad.

 

“We have been very unlucky with injuries but the lads who were fit all enjoyed it.

 

“We’ve got a big squad and we can cope with the injuries.”

 

On the goal itself the affable 24-year-old was fairly modest.

 

“The ball came back to me, and although I wanted to shoot first time, a defender came out to me and so I dummied him and then I struck it and it went in,” he says.

 

“Ever since I’ve been a little boy, I’ve always liked to shoot at goal, so it comes naturally.

 

“I don’t know how many goals I can score this season, but I think I can score a lot.”

 

Sako also believes he still has more to offer the team, despite his impressive start to life in Wolves’ colours.

 

“I hope there is more to come from me as I get used to my team-mates,” he says.

 

“I’m settling in well and enjoying life in Wolverhampton and playing for Wolves.”
