Nuno Espirito Santo announced plans that he’ll leave Wolverhampton at the end of the season.
The Portuguese boss who spent the last four years at Molineux will coach his last club game this Sunday against Manchester United.
Progress at Wolves
If you’re a fan of Wolverhampton, then you’ll know it’s been a great journey under Nuno Espirito Santo. Four years ago, they were blessed with the appointment of Nuno who took the Wolves from 15th in the Championship to winning the title in his inaugural season.
The former Porto boss led Wolves to promotion, finishing in seventh place in his first two Premier League seasons. Nuno also led Wolves to the quarter-finals of the Europa League, the club’s first taste of European football in 39 years.
Wolves will finish this season in 11th place, a step back for Nuno and team who’ve mutually agreed to part ways.
In his own words
“Since the first day we arrived at Compton, our ambition was to make a positive change and push this football club forward, and I am proud to say that we did that every single day,” wrote the head coach on the club’s official website.
“We achieved our goals, we did it with passion and we did it together.
“Firstly, I want to thank the supporters, who have all played such an important part in helping us reach new heights for Wolves, and the people of the city, who embraced us and made us feel at home.
“I, of course, want to thank all of the staff at Wolves, for their support and total commitment, every single day.
“Most importantly, I want to thank each and every player that we’ve worked with since the day we started, for their loyalty, their dedication, hard work and talent. They are the ones who have made this amazing journey possible for us.
“Sunday will be a very emotional day, but I am so happy that the fans will be back in Molineux and we can share one last special moment together, as one pack.”
