Wolves fans react on Twitter to Sako's performance at Millwall

Kenny Jackett's side surrendered a 3-0 lead at the Den. But Bakary Sako still put a smile on supporters' faces.


That's probably the best way to describe seeing your side lose a three-goal lead to drop points on a Saturday afternoon.

It happened to AC Milan in midweek in 2005 - during the small matter of the Champions League final.

And it happened to Wolverhampton Wanderers this week, with Kenny Jackett's side surrendering a 3-0 lead against his former club Millwall.

Ian Holloway's men fought back through two Ricardo Fuller goals and Wolves ended up dropping yet more points. Since beating Bolton Wanderers 1-0, Wolves have embarked upon a remarkable run of conceding 11 goals in just four games. They have not won a single one of those four.

But, if there's one man who can put a smile on supporters' faces, it is Bakary Sako. The Mali international has been described by Wolves fans as their greatest player in 20 years - and the best player outside of the Premier League.

He scored a stunning free kick against Millwall today and almost netted another one late in the game, as well as registering an assist against Holloway's side.

The 26-year-old represents everything that is good about Wolves right now. For a previously sound defensive team, though, Jackett's men have a lot of work to do to restore that reputation. Here are the best fan reactions on Twitter...
