Nuno Espirito Santo has signed a new three-year deal as head coach of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Wolves finished seventh in the Premier League last season and the Portuguese has been rewarded with a new contract at Molineux until 2023.
Nuno’s men begin their new season against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on this week’s Monday Night Football.
If Wolves’ epic season, one that lasted well over a year, feels like it only just finished, that is because it did.
They resume away to Sheffield United on September 14 less than five weeks after their Europa League adventure finally came to an end against Sevilla.
The expectation was that a repeat of Wolves’ seventh-place finish would prove too much for Nuno Espirito Santo’s small squad given their European commitments but the players managed to conjure up that repeat as well as reaching the quarter-finals of the competition.
In fact, a point on the final day of the Premier League would have been enough for sixth and European qualification once more. Instead, Arsenal’s FA Cup win has left them out of Europe altogether, with question marks over whether momentum can be maintained.
The summer transfer window will run for 10 weeks from July 27 and close at 11pm on October 5.
