Bakary Sako has been a major player for Wolverhampton Wanderers this season. Despite being an attacking midfielder, he has already scored seven goals in just 23 appearances.
Wolves form may have suffered in the months of November. They are no longer top of the table, but the club still remain with the chance to finish in the Premier League at the end of the campaign. After winning three out of the last four matches, manager Kenny Jackett says that he will be disappointed with the temporary exit of Sako.Sako will be going to play in the African Cup of Nations.
Mali are not one of the favourites to win the trophy and this should seeSako returning much earlier than anticipated. Jackett is being left torn with the idea ofSako performing well at the Africa Cup of Nations. Doing so will help him continue his form with Wolves after returning to league action, but it would also put him on the radar of several clubs both in England and abroad.Sako is already creating a lot of attention with his impressive form in the first half of the season.Jackett says that the club will do everything in order to keep him at the Molineux Stadium.“There’s always speculation about Sako all of the time and he’s a good player.
“Him going away, does it give him more profile or is it harder to get hold of him?It could work either way.I think in the end if somebody wants him they want him and it will work out.For me personally and everybody at the club. we would want to keep him.Yes, his options are open until the end of the season.I wouldn’t say that we’re out of the running, but we’ll both remain open minded as the season goes,” said Jackett.
