Wolves Hand Nuno a 12-Month Contract Extension
Wolves have been able to agree a one-year extension to the contract with manager Nuno Espirito Santo. The Portuguese was responsible for getting the club back into the Premier League in his first season at the Molineux stadium. Even though he has been back quite significantly in the transfer market with several signings, the manner in which the 44-year-old was able to achieve success in a short span of time was quite impressive. Wolves have once again back to their manager quite strongly in the summer and it bodes well for the club’s opening match against Everton.
This will be the first Premier league match for Wolves in the last six years, as the club has gone through a struggle during this period. Nuno originally had a contract with Wolves until the summer of 2020 but it has now been extended by an additional 12 months. This gives the club a lot of stability going forward, but Nuno will be aware that results hold the key towards keeping him in the job going forward. The club has already brought in the likes of Raul Jimenez and Rui Patricio. Players like Diogo Jota, Ruben Vinagre, Leo Bonatini, and Willy Boly have been made into a permanent part of the club by converting their loan deals into a permanent move. These players were crucial in getting the club from the Championship into the Premier league as the table leaders.
“We knew the project required time and now we have three years ahead of us. In year two we know the challenge is even more difficult, but we have something that we hold onto - we have our own identity,” said Nuno after signing the contract extension . Despite having been a dominant force in the Championship, Wolves will be available the difficulties in the upcoming Premier League campaign.
