Wolves: Fans question Nuno Espirito Santo’s use of Romain Saiss during Newcastle draw

Wolves: Fans question Nuno Espirito Santo’s use of Romain Saiss during Newcastle draw - Wolves News

Plenty of Wolves fans questioned Nuno Espirito Santo‘s decision to play Romain Saiss at left wingback during his side’s 1-1 draw against Newcastle United on Sunday.

The West Midlands outfit struggled to breakdown Steve Bruce’s side during what was a frustrating encounter for the large majority of the game.

Supporters were made to wait until ten minutes from time for Raul Jimenez to strike from range, but were pegged back in the 89th minute by Jacob Murphy after he struck low past Rui Patricio to level the scores.

The Portuguese boss went with a 3-4-3 formation with Saiss and Nelson Semedo playing as wingbacks and Max Kilman, Conor Coady and Willy Boly providing the backline.

During the 90 minutes, the £9m-rated Moroccan defender did not make any key passes, completed no long balls or crosses and lost possession 12 times (Sofascore).

As a result, supporters did not approve of Nuno’s tactics and made their feelings clear on social media, directing their frustration towards the fact that Saiss did not have the sufficient attacking qualities to benefit their team.
