Wolves fans react to the heroics of Rui Patricio in draw with Man United

Premiership Picks

Wolves boss Nuno Santo needed heroics from two of his fellow countrymen to earn a point against a Manchester United side who thrashed Chelsea 4-0 on the opening day of the Premier League season.

Ruben Neves thumped in a glorious strike from long-range to equalise before Rui Patricio stepped up between the sticks to save a second-half penalty from Paul Pogba.

His valiant display stirred quite the reaction amongst the Molineux fanbase as Wolves started their season with successive draws.

One supporter said that the 31-year-old was the best keeper they have had for a lifetime and claimed Patricio produces big moments, whilst another added that he made a world class save.

An additional fan added that the Portuguese international could be the most underrated keeper of this generation, with others using ‘legend’ and ‘amazing’ to describe his performance.

Patricio has made 42 appearances in the old gold shirt since joining the club last summer from Sporting CP.

Here’s the best of the reaction:
