Nuno Hails Players’ Mentality

Nuno Hails Players’ Mentality

Coach Nuno Espirito Santo feels the most pleasing aspect of Wolves’ victory over West Ham was the way they stuck to their game plan. The Molineux outfit came into the new season full of confidence and promising attacking football after winning the Championship, but found the first few games tough.

They took just two points from their opening three matches but Saturday’s last-gasp triumph at the London Stadium saw the West Midlanders leap to 11th in the top-flight table.

Nuno has continually championed his charges’ style of football and made it clear they will not budge from their mindset at all this term.

And, after Adama Traore’s stoppage-time winner, the Portuguese tactician admitted his players’ resilience pleased him the most.

“The win was special for the boys because we didn’t change since day one – and for us, day one was last season,” he told reporters. “We play the same way and do the same things.

“We tried to create solutions, the players are improving, and things will happen naturally, it is a growing process.

“Of course, it is a lot easier to work with good results. I think the organisation is the most important part of the game. As long as you play the way you train, you are close to winning.”
