Wolves: Fans react to managerial award for Nuno Espirito Santo

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo was presented with an award as the best Portuguese manager operating outside his homeland by a journalist from Portugal ahead of tonight’s Europa League clash against Braga.

Express & Star writer Nathan Judah tweeted about the award for Nuno on his Twitter channel @njudah_star, with an image to verify that the Wolves manager was indeed presented with a colourful statuette.


Nuno is no stranger to individual managerial honours during his time at Molineux, having been named EFL Championship Manager of the Month in November 2017, LMA Championship Manager of the Year for the 2017/18 season and Premier League Manager of the Month last September.

He has also been awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Sport from the University of Wolverhampton, as reported by the Express & Star, but Wolves go into this game off the back of a difficult start to the season.

Despite reaching the Europa League group stage, they are winless in five Premier League games and second bottom of the table after shipping eight goals in losing their last two matches.

These Wolves fans on Twitter gave their reactions to the award given to Nuno by his fellow countrymen ahead of the likes of Jose Mourinho and Marco Silva:
