Explosive Wolves winger Bakary Sako was today described as having one of the best shots in the game after his blistering show saw off Sheffield United.
The French winger set up Leigh Griffiths for his fifth goal of the season then bagged his sixth of the campaign with an unstoppable scorching 30-yard shot to clinch a 2-0 win on Saturday.
Wolves’ former Sheffield United playmaker Kevin McDonald, who set Sako up, said: “It’s unbelievable how hard he hits the ball, and technically he’s probably one of the best I’ve seen.
“I played it to him, but I never thought he was going to hit it first time.
“He hammered it though – the keeper had no chance, he was maybe a bit surprised Bakary hit it that hard. It was a powerful shot – I couldn’t hit it that hard probably with both my legs combined!”
Griffiths said: “Sako was a different class in the second-half. He set up one and scored one.
“I wouldn’t have liked to have been the keeper. I think he dived after it went in the net!
“The big man has that in his locker. He wasn’t at the races in the first-half but his quality shone through in the second-half.”
