Wolverhampton Wanderers keep showing magic at the highest flight competition of English football. The Wolves boss have been an enormous success at the Molineux after joining the club in 2017. He has turned the championship side into a mid table side of the EPL within a couple of season. They have not only been very much consistent in the English Premier League but also in the UEFA Europa League. After getting the promotion to the English top flight, they finished 7th in the league table. They managed to gather 57 points after the end of the 38 matches and got the ticket of the 2nd highest flight of the European football.
The West Midlands based club was in the group K along with the likes of Braga, Slovan and Besiktas. There they managed to gather 13 points and finished 2nd in the group table, just a point behind the group topper Braga. They continued their superb form in the post group phase of this competition. In the 16th finals, they completely thrashed La Liga side RCD Espanyol. Then just before the 2nd leg game against Greek side Olympiakos, in the round of 16, the league got postponed due to Corona Virus.
So the upper context cleanly summarizes that, how much improvement and changes, the Portuguese has brought to the Molineux based side. Things haven’t gone unnoticed as the fans as well as the pundits all went admirer of the former Porto goalkeeper. But the 47 years old probably got the biggest appreciation from his compatriot Jose Mourinho. The Special One, flooded his former disciple. The duo worked together at the Portuguese club FC Porto. Although he wasn’t a regular starter under the coaching of Jose Mourinho at the Estadio de Dragao, he played under him a couple of season as a optional goalie.
Current Tottenham boss faced the media prior to the contest against Wolverhampton. The 57 years old experienced football manager didn’t hold himself back when he started talking about Nuno. Jose revealed that, he truly believes that, Santo definitely deserves a bigger job than his current one at the Molineux. He asked forgiveness from the Wolves fans before expressing such thoughts. But he cleared that, the Sao Tome born manager should be in a much more higher ranked club. Jose was not the only EPL manager to praise Nuno and his side as Pep Guardiola labelled his side as one of the toughest oppositions in the league. Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said that, the Wanderers do have a style (nice) of playing.
