Nuno signs new Wolves contract

Nuno Espirito Santo has committed his long-term future to Wolves by signing a new three-year-deal on the eve of the 2020/21 season.

The head coach has made a sensational impact since joining Wolves in May 2017, firing the club into the Premier League at the first time of asking by securing 99 points with a new and exciting looking old gold side.

An instant bond was formed between Nuno, his staff, players and supporters, who enjoyed more success once in the Premier League, with the head coach remaining committed to his entertaining football philosophy.

His job was aided by a series of impeccable pieces of recruitment, with the likes of Willy Boly, Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota reuniting with Nuno to help Wolves earn their place amongst England’s elite.

Back in the top tier, Nuno’s side took 16 points from the traditional top six, beating Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Arsenal on their way to finishing seventh.

Alongside their Premier League exploits, Nuno guided Wolves on their greatest FA Cup journey this side of the millennium, appearing in the semi-finals at the national stadium.

A trilogy of 2018/19 successes was secured as Wolves returned to European football for the first time in 39 years, teeing up a record-breaking campaign to follow.

59 games across 383 days last term saw Nuno and his team provide even more excitement, as Wolves embarked on simultaneous trilling adventures in the Premier League and Europa League.

Another seventh-place finish was locked in thanks to an improved points tally, while Wolves spread their wings across Europe and received plaudits from across the continent, after an exhilarating ride to the last eight.

Less than six weeks after taking on Sevilla in Germany, Nuno and Wolves’ latest quest begins on Monday and the head coach’s commitment to the project has been further underlined after he signed on the dotted line.
