Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has been speaking of his delight at seeing Wolverhampton Wanderers take another victory this season against Hull City.

Travelling to the KCOM Stadium for his third game in charge, goals from Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota and Nouha Dicko gave us the three points once again in a three two victory, and Santo was delighted with what he saw.

Speaking to the Official Website as he met with the media following the game, Santo was obviously delighted to see us make it three wins from three.

‘I`m happy with the result, I`m happy with the hard work of the boys, I`m happy with part of the performance but not all of the game. It was a tough opponent at a tough stadium, a big win for us and a very important three points. The team showed character in going for more. They showed ambition to go for the third goal. Then in the end we suffered with the penalty. But overall I`m happy with a good performance.’

Santo went on to say.

‘Great support from the fans, from minute one until the end celebrating with us. I want to thank them for coming so far and really supporting and helping the guys. They boys are working hard and getting wins – this is what we are here for, to give them joy.’

Asked on whether the game on Tuesday had shown a different aspect to the play of the side, he explained.

‘You have to defend well. They have two good strikers and a lot of mobility, the wingers are good players. You have to stick together and take out the space. If you press them well then you will control that aspect of the game. In that part of the field we did really well and, offensively, we created many chances – we deserved the goals that we got.’


‘It shows character, it shows ambition to not sit on a result and always look to get more goals that give you the advantage that you need. We need to look at set pieces. There is a lot of work to do – we must improve.’

Neves opening goal also took a line of special praise.

‘It was a fantastic moment. This is what the fans come for, to enjoy those moments in the stadium. It is poetry.’
