Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo feels that he has a large enough squad to compete in four tournaments this season, despite failing to win their first four Premier League games.
Nuno asked about if he has squad depth to cope with Europe and Prem in his post-match presser.
"We have 60 players – 60 players," he replied. #wwfc

When asked if Wolves’ squad was big enough to contend with Europa League matches on top of Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup commitments, Nuno replied: “We have 60 players“.
Wolves have already played 10 matches in all competitions this season and, at a minimum, will have 34 more Premier League games, one game each in the domestic cups and six Europa League group matches. [via TransferMarkt.co.uk]

These Wolves fans on Twitter feel that the manager is still operating from a very threadbare squad in what has already been a busy season for the Molineux outfit:
Nuno has embarassed himself here. Stupid thing to say

What even happened to using youth player? 2 of them were on the bench for about 2 games, ain’t seen any of them since

Make it 61 if you include me. I'm probably about as qualified as whichever 12 year olds hes including in this.

We really don’t though do we. The senior squad is too small.

We might have 60 players but about 40 of them won't make it near the first team

Well only 18 of those must be deemed good enough because he hasn't used any of the other 42.
