Nuno Espirito Santo insists Wolves still have a lot of improvements to make, despite transforming a mid-table Championship club into a European title challenger in three years.
The head coach will mark his 150th game in charge of Wolves against Arsenal on Saturday, but the club he walked into on the 31st May 2017 is completely indistinguishable from what he has at his fingertips today.
Continuous success throughout his tenure at Molineux has seen Nuno establish himself as the only Wolves manager to have won more than half of his games in charge of the old gold, but even he admits that he was unsure of the feats the club would go on to achieve when he first took over the reins.
On transforming the club since arriving at Molineux
“I cannot lie, when I started, we didn’t know what was in front of us, but what we knew was that we had a fantastic club to take care of and try to become as huge as it was in its past history.
“But I know I’ve been proud of the work we have been doing since we started in the Championship. We’ve begun to build something.
“I think we’ve done the right things, but we’re still in a building process of what we expect to be a very good football team, that has already achieved important and remarkable things in the history of the club, but still has a long way to go.
“We still have a long way to go in terms of raising standards, being consistent and playing well and performing well, because there is still a lot of room to improve.”
