New Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa is already looking forwards to his first taste of Premier League action having arrived at the club and met his teammates for the first time this week.
The stopper joins an already strong Portuguese contingent in the gold and black dressing room, reuniting with many of his international colleagues, as well as former Olympiacos teammate Daniel Podence. Currently out in Marbella as the squad takes part in warm-weather training, Sa is excited to get onto the pitch and show what he can do in front of his new supporters.
On his first impressions of the club
“It was good. I’ve spent five days in quarantine and only started training yesterday. I’s been very pleasant, and I hope it will stay like this.
“I am already looking forward to starting the season and win as many games as possible.”
On moving to the Premier League
“Because it’s the best league in the world and Wolves is a very good team, that fights for good objectives too.
“I think it will be a good opportunity for me, so I decided to join the pack.
“I hope to achieve as many victories as possible, in terms of team, but I also hope to achieve as many clean sheets as I can too.”
On joining the Portuguese contingent
“It’s good because I already knew most of them. It’s always good to have other players that we already know, so, it’s been very good.
“Before I signed, I spoke with Ruben [Neves] and Rui Patricio.
“I asked him [Rui] how life was here and how the club is. We talked a little bit. He wished me lots of luck and I also wished him good luck.”

On working under Bruno Lage
“It’s been very good. I already knew him from Benfica times. We never worked together in the Benfica academy, despite the fact we were there at the same time.
“But from what I have already experienced, he’s a very good coach, with good ideas and we are excited to start the new season and start getting results.”
On missing Olympiacos’ Europa League match at Molineux
“I broke my wrist and didn't play. What happened is that I played the first game [in Piraeus], we tied 1-1, but unfortunately, I didn’t play the second game.
“At the time we did not pass [into the last 16], but now I’m happy for Wolves’ result.”
