Nuno Espirito Santo commits his future to Wolves by penning new three-year deal

Nuno Espirito Santo has committed his future to Premier League side Wolves by signing a new three-year contract with the club, as per 90MIN.

The 46-year-old has earned a good reputation since taking the hot seat at Molineux, leading the West Midlands side into the Premier League before earning them a Europa League spot.

The former Porto keeper had only a year left on his previous deal, but now the club has confirmed that he has penned a new contract.

Nuno told the club’s website:

“I feel good. Ready for it. Looking forward to it. Working really hard for it, because it’s a new cycle, no matter what you did before, it’s about what’s in front of us and this is what we think we should do. Let’s prepare well, let’s challenge, do the way we do things, fight for it.”

Santo took charge at the Wanderers in 2017 and guided the club back into the top-flight in his first campaign. He then led the Molineux side to a seventh-place finish at the table, thus qualifying for Europa League for the first time since 1980-81. That season, the West Midlands club secured victories over many top clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham.

They made it to the quarter-final of the latest Europa League but got knocked out of the prestigious competition by eventual winners Sevilla.

Wolves were handed a brilliant chance in the 13th minute of the game, but Raul Jimenez failed to convert the penalty and that proved to be a costly miss for them. With just two minutes remaining, Lucas Ocampos scored with a superb header that settled the fate of the game.

The Wanderers will start their 2020-21 Premier League season when they face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Monday.
