The coronavirus pandemic has seen all professional football suspended until April 3 at the earliest. There were strong delegations before the decision to put the league on hold arrived. It was suggested that the league should continue, and games should be played behind closed doors. But due to the latest development, it was agreed that putting the league on hold is the best available solution to manage the spread of the virus among fans and players.
Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo is pleased by the fact that his team were able to reach the knockout stage of the Champions League with one game to spare. The west Midlands outfit were pitted in a testing group with the likes of Braga and Besiktas but they have managed to excel from their initial expectations to make progress to the round of 32.
Speaking after the 3-3 draw versus Braga, Santo said that he was very proud with the players embracing the challenge. He added to praise the core of the current first-team squad which includes a number of players, who guided the side from the Championship, he told: "I'm very proud because we embraced the challenge of all of the competitions and different situations [we have been in]."
Wolverhampton Wanderers ace Adama Traore has said that he is still developing his game under the guidance of manager Nuno Espirito Santo. The former Barcelona graduate has generally played as a right-sided winger for the Wolves but of late, he has featured in the right wing-back role from where he has caught the eye.
Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo has praised the performance of Burnley during the recent 1-1 Premier League draw between the sides. The Lancashire outfit were certainly the better team during the course of the encounter and they appeared on course for a 1-0 triumph before Wolves were handed with a late stoppage time penalty.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has lauded Wolverhampton Wanderers in the lead-up to the final of the Premier League Asia Trophy. The Citizens reached the final of the friendly competition after a convincing 4-1 triumph over West Ham United and they are now scheduled to face the Wolves, who enjoyed a comfortable 4-0 win over Newcastle United earlier in the week.
Speaking ahead of the final, Guardiola spoke fondly about the west Midlands outfit while starting his team’s own preparation for the game, he said: “We play against an opposition who did incredible last season. We are here to try to get our best level as soon as possible. We know how they play and it’s just a friendly. We will try to do a good game and show our principles and what we want to do for the rest of the season. It’s a friendly but it’s an official game against Premier League team, that’s the reason why they are here.”
