Wolverhampton Wanderers booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday afternoon as we took a narrow 1-0 victory over Bristol City and in Monday night’s draw, we now know we will face rejuvenated Manchester United.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live’s 606 programme ahead of the Cup draw taking place, former Premier League winner Chris Sutton stated that he wanted to see ‘Wolves win the cup’ this year in recognition of our growth the last few season’s and how we’ve took to life in the top flight this campaign.
“Do you know who I want to see win the cup? I want to see Wolves win the cup. Brilliant they’ve been this season. Great brand of football they play. They are taking the cup seriously. I hope Wolves’ name is on the trophy, they can beat anybody on their day.”
It’s understandable as to why the pundit was full of praise for the performances of head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, as Wolves have won plenty of praise so far this year despite our little wobble a few months back, but it is a marathon, not a sprint, and United will be tough cookies in the round, so we’ll just have to see what the game brings come the final whistle.
High praise indeed and yet another example of how far we have come in such a short space of time.
