Nuno wants Wolves to maintain momentum

Nuno Espirito Santo knows how important it was for his Wolves side to record back-to-back victories in their previous two Premier League outings.

After the delight of the come-from-behind win over Chelsea and a last-minute winner at Newcastle last Sunday, attention has already turned to this Saturday’s visit of Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth, in a game where Wolves have the chance to record three consecutive Premier League wins for the first time in history.

But Nuno admits records and making history does not motivate his team, rather that each game itself is his and his players’ motivation.

On consecutive victories

"It’s amazing, it’s massive. We know how hard it is to achieve back-to-back wins in such a difficult competition, but we did it and we want to proceed. We want to continue and are ready for it.

"We go game by game. Every game is a motivation, it’s not what we did before. What’s important is to face the tough challenge that we have tomorrow and that we are ready for tomorrow. That’s most important."

On Bournemouth and Eddie Howe

"We know Bournemouth and we know it’s going to be a big and tough challenge. They are a very good team, with very good players.

"The work of Eddie Howe is fantastic, it’s amazing. He’s really good, but you just have to see how Bournemouth plays, you just have to see and analyse them.

"They’re a very good team, so it’s a tough challenge for us tomorrow, no doubts about it."

On Raheem Sterling and media racism claims

"It’s something that is not only in sport, it’s a social problem that exists, it’s evident. I think it’s everybody’s responsibility, as individuals, as members of society, that we should treat everybody the same. There’s no difference.

"It’s a social problem. It’s not only the media, its everybody. There is no difference between us, it’s not understandable, which is why I think it’s everybody’s responsibility to eradicate and combat this. Not only to finish it in sports, but also across society.

"I have never been a victim of racist abuse myself. If I was I didn’t realise it. But now that there is a debate, I think everybody is thinking about it, everybody’s speaking about it and it’s the first step.

"I think the way Raheem did it is classy, it’s the right way to do it, he really put a point and a question mark on everybody’s mind.

"But it’s up to us to finish it."
