Despite putting in a herculean effort between the sticks to keep Liverpool at bay for 94 minutes on Saturday, Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa was not pleased with his individual performance as his side didn’t walk away from Molineux with all three points.
Sa marshalled his defence almost failingly throughout the match, with his only blip letting Diogo Jota loose with a chance on goal, but Conor Coady came to the rescue to block magnificently on the line. However, the keeper made several crucial saves to keep Liverpool out until Divock Origi’s late strike, which caught the stopper wrong-footed, secured the narrowest of victories for the visitors.
On defeat to the Reds
“I’m not happy [with his performance] because we lose. We feel sad because we worked to win the game.
“Of course, we knew it would be a difficult game, but we worked and we did all the things right.
“But this is football. We are sad because this is the second game we’ve conceded a goal in the 90-something minute, so we are sad.”
On Coady’s goalline block
“It is a team effort because we are a family. When a player misses some work or misses something, we have the others to help.
“It’s like this. I felt this is a family and I say thank you to Coady because I missed, and he was there to help.”
On the largest Molineux crowd of the season
“For us, it’s very important, the support, because it gives us confidence and gives us power to fight, to continue to attack and score goals.
“Of course, we have to say thank you to the fans because they helped us a lot.”
