The Lowdown: Wolves draw with Norwich
It has been a disappointing end to the season for Bruno Lage’s side, who bowed out at Molineux for another campaign with a 1-1 draw against the relegated Canaries on Sunday afternoon.
It means that Wolves’ European dream is over for another year but the players still got a nice reception from the crowd as they showed their appreciation after the final whistle.
It was a moment to gauge the body language of some, in order to see if it looked as though they were saying their farewells in the Black Country.
The Latest: Spiers reckons Saiss was ‘waving goodbye’
That certainly appeared to be the case with Saiss, with Spiers taking to Twitter to claim that the Moroccan may have played at Molineux for the last time as he shared a clip of the Wolves players acknowledging the fans in a post-match lap of honour.
The journalist tweeted: “Saiss at the end there. Waving goodbye you’d have to say.”
The Verdict: Great servant for Wolves
It makes sense for Saiss to move on at this point, with his contract expiring next month. At 32, it would seem that his best days are no longer in front of him.
He should be remembered as a brilliant servant for Wolves, though, with the Moroccan making 206 appearances for the club, scoring 15 goals for good measure and standing out as one of their best performers this term.
It is now a case of replacing Saiss, who has been such a reliable and regular part of the defence for a number of years, to ensure that Lage’s side remain as defensively savvy next season as they were for the bulk of 2021/22.
In other news, Spiers has also lamented the decline of one Wolves player. Find out who it is here.
