Wolves: Nuno Espirito Santo no longer first choice in manager hunt

Wolves: Nuno Espirito Santo no longer first choice in manager hunt -Wolves News

Former Molineux boss Nuno Espirito Santo is no longer Wolverhampton Wanderers’ first-choice candidate in their search for a new manager, according to journalist Nathan Judah.

The Lowdown: Nuno linked with Wolves return

Earlier this week, it emerged that Wolves’ preferred Bruno Lage replacement, Julen Lopetegui, had rejected the chance to take over at Molineux due to personal reasons.

As a result, the Midlands club had to dip back into the market for an alternative, citing surprise links with their former manager Nuno.

With Lopetegui now out of the picture, the former Tottenham manager has been tipped as a strong contender in the race to be appointed at the Molineux.

The Latest: Nuno update

Judah has shared fresh news on Wolves’ managerial hunt, revealing an update on Nuno’s position with the club.

Taking to Twitter on Friday evening, the journalist claimed: “The managerial saga continues: Nuno Espírito Santo is NOT Wolves’ first choice.

“Could still take over if others not interested/available. Rob Edwards to rejoin coaching staff?”

The Verdict: Wolves’ best manager in years

Having restored the club’s Premier League status and having led them to a Europa League quarter-final in 2020, Nuno left Wolves as one of their best managers of recent times.

Across 199 games in charge of the club, the Old Gold impressively averaged 1.68 points per match, for which Tottenham striker Harry Kane dubbed the 48-year-old a ‘great manager’.

Should Wolves re-hire Nuno?

However, towards the end of Nuno’s tenure in north London, ideas appeared to be running out with the Portuguese boss.

Whilst his familiarity with the club is an obvious bonus, it could also be argued the Old Gold need a fresh appointment at Molineux to get them back to winning ways, with a change of direction and tactics an exciting prospect for the club’s fans.
