Nuno wants to build 'something special' at Wolves

Nuno Espirito Santo hopes to build "something special" at Wolves.

The Midlands club began their Premier League campaign with a 2-0 win over Sheffield United after scoring two early goals and Nuno is hoping to achieve great things in his fourth season at Molineux after pledging his future to the team.

Speaking after the game, the Portuguese manager said: "This was the first match we had, a quick turnaround. Very pleased. The identity of the players, the character, the ways they worked, the resilience at the end - it is very difficult.

"It has been an amazing three seasons. I think we can create something really special. The identity, the core of the squad. We have to stay humble."

Wolves captain Conor Coady added that it was a "huge result" for the team in a difficult opening game.

The defender said: "Huge result for us. It was important we had a game plan and stuck to it and we got the early goals.

"The first game of the season is always tough, Sheffield United first game away you look at that and know it will be tough. Second half we dug in, we stopped the ball coming through us."

Coady also expressed his delight that Nuno has signed a new contract with Wolves.

He said: "When you see how he works with us in and around the training ground. He is a fantastic manager."
