Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has been named the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month for November.



The Portuguese has instilled a swashbuckling style at Molineux. Not only did his side win all four games, they did so with ease, scoring at least two goals in every game and managing four and five against Leeds and Bolton, respectively.

Santo said: “It feels good and it means a lot, not only for us, but it means a lot for the club, for the squad for the players and the fans.

“We deserve an award for the work that everyone at the club has been doing. Everyone is important every detail, every bit of help that a player has in the right moment can help and make them perform better.”

George Burley chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel.

He said: “Nuno had a 100% win rate record with Wolves in November to take them top of the Sky Bet Championship.

“Their attacking style produced at least two goals in every game, scoring 13 in 4 games in the month.”

Sky Sports` EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “It`s no exaggeration to say that Wolves are blowing the Championship away at the moment. Of their last ten league games, they`ve won nine and lost only one, scoring 26 goals in the process.

“There have been a lot of teams who have spent a lot of money in the Championship over the last few years, which has proved to be no guarantee of success. It`s fair to say that none have got their side playing in as dominating a way as Nuno has now.”

Sky Bet EFL trader Mikey Mumford said: “November was a flawless month for Nuno Espírito Santo as his side blew away all comers and conceded just twice in the process.

“It now looks like being a monumental task for any of the chasing pack to dislodge Wolves at the summit of the Championship and comprehensive wins in the month against Fulham and Leeds further proves their title credentials.

“They entered the month as 10/11 favourites at Sky Bet for the title and ended it considerably shorter at 2/7 and the Portuguese deserves enormous credit for transforming them into arguably the most feared side in the division.”
