With Wolverhampton Wanderers putting their slow and early start to the 2019/20 campaign thoroughly behind them with good progress in the Europa League and our unbeaten Premier League run, fans are used to the press trying to sell our stars out from under us and that also applies to head coach Nuno Espirito Santo.
Although the unbeaten run came to an end over the weekend as our efforts against Tottenham Hotspur didn’t receive the deserved awards with a 2-1 defeat, another story doing the rounds again had Nuno’s future in doubt given the availability of the Arsenal job following Unai Emery’s sacking.
It was a Daily Mail effort, full of speculation but little in the way of substance and understandably some fans had their concerns.
Arsenal/Nuno link doing the rounds again today.
I'm told Nuno has no interest in speaking to the Gunners.

A Tweet from Athletic journalist Tim Spiers shut the speculation down, much to the delight of plenty of fans, as he reiterated that he believed Nuno had no interest in taking the job on, especially as Arsenal only seem to be interested in former midfielder Mikel Arteta in any event.

Best news of the day. Let’s keep it that way. Plus – who would want to go manage that lot?!?!

Why would he want to, this team is on the up and only going to get better

Thanks Tim, now that is the best result of the day! Boys did good today, some amazing football played but the wrong result. We go again, with Nuno we will get better. @Fosun_Intl get Nuno’s new contract sorted ASAP, keep him @Wolves.

Lets just get Nuno signed up on a new long term contract then I can be happy 🙂

Let's hope that the 'I'm told' people are even more knowledgeable than the 'I'm told' people talking to the broadsheets and tabloids… Sir S knows, he knows
