Given the impact that head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has had at Wolverhampton Wanderers, speculation about his potential future is not new and we’ve seen plenty of bizarre reports linking him to the likes of Manchester United and others previously – and we can now add Arsenal to that list.
The reports so far have been entirely understandable given the success he’s had at the Molineux – we stormed to the Championship title, we’ve had great success in the transfer market, and our maiden first year in the Premier League saw us qualify for the Europa League – and 2019/20 sees us kick on nicely in the top flight as well as in our European adventure.
The links aren’t surprising but they are always bereft of any real details and read as journalistic license – as does the fresh Arsenal links given Unai Emery’s struggles.
With the rumour mill kicking back into gear, Nuno addressed the rumours in his Eintracht Frankfurt press conference and he was as classy and professional as ever.
“I wouldn’t ever mention an issue which is not a reality. Speaking about a job which has a manager would be disrespectful and I will not do so.”
I can’t be the only one to read ‘not a reality’ as meaning there’s no truth to the reports, the follow up about being disrespect to discuss a job with a manager in place, is simply a professional add on.
