Former Wolves striker Kevin Doyle believes that Wolves fans should be worried about the possibility of manager Nuno Espirito Santo moving to Manchester United.
Nuno on Old Trafford radar?
The 46-year-old Portuguese tactician has done wonders in the West Midlands, guiding them to the Premier League for the first time since the early 2010s and has managed to accumulate a points-per-game average of 1.79 from 165 games in charge (TransferMarkt).
But after the Old Trafford club’s dismal start to the 2020/21 campaign, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future is looking increasingly in doubt and Nuno has previously been linked with Red Devils role before the Norweigan coach took charge (via Sportsmole).
“I think I’d be a bit worried if I was a Wolves fan at the moment about Nuno,” he said. “He’s a contender for the Manchester United job, of course, he is. Why wouldn’t he be?
“Mauricio Pochettino is probably their number one choice but Nuno, definitely, would be up there as well for me. His link with (Jorge) Mendes and their ability to sign players, he would be a contender. I’m a Man United fan and I’d have no problem with him being the manager.”
Doyle went on to describe Nuno as “inspirational”, predicting that he doesn’t believe Solskjaer is going anywhere for the time being so supporters can relax.
Transfer Tavern take
There was always going to be the danger of other clubs coming in for Nuno’s services after the job he has done while at the helm of the West Midlands outfit.
But now is the time to see whether they can convince him to remain at Molineux for the foreseeable future. Despite this, Wolves have the safety net of his current deal which still has three years left to run on it (TransferMarkt).
Patience is key to this situation. Doyle advertising Nuno on Manchester United’s behalf will not help Wolves’ cause but they have every right to stand firm on this issue.
