Jose Sa admits he felt the responsibility to replace Rui Patricio (he left for Rome) when he arrived at Wolverhampton, at the start of the season.
“Rui Patricio is a great goalkeeper, so it was difficult to replace him. It was not easy at all,” he admitted in an interview with Sky Sports, before remembering that he had all the support from a team full of Portuguese: “We have a very good group, he helped me.” Everyone is adapting to the championship and that also helped me gain confidence to help the team.”

The 28-year-old, who is believed to have reached the Premier League in time after three seasons at Olympiacos, said, “They were all great because they helped me adjust to life,” said the 28-year-old. In England.” It was too late. The opportunity came at the best time.
An opportunity that Jose Sa, at this time as the Premier League goalkeeper with the most saves, seized, a statistic that makes Wolverhampton the second least defeated defense in the Premier League: “I’m confident because I know my teammates from a team that supports me. The goalkeeper needs a good defense.”

“It is good to hear a legend, one of the greatest names in football, speaking of me. I was very happy, of course, because, in my opinion, the Premier League is the best tournament in the world.”
