Speaking to the Express & Star, Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo has said that the season resuming means that he ‘will have time to talk’ about a new contract.
‘We Will Have Time to Talk’ Says Nuno Espirito Santo
One Year Remaining on Current Deal
The 46-year-old has just one year remaining on his current deal at Molineux.
The Portuguese has played a major part in Wolves’ meteoric rise in recent years. He won the Championship title during his first season with the club, earning 99 points in the process.
Wolves have continued to impress under Nuno Espirito Santo in the Premier League. They finished seventh in there first season back in the top-flight following a six-year absence, and they occupied sixth place before Covid-19 brought a halt to proceedings.
As a result, the Wolves hierarchy and fans alike will be hoping that he extends his stay at Molineux.
What Was Said
Speaking ahead of their game against West Ham United, Nuno said that contract talks are likely to commence due to the Premier League restart.
He said: “When you have something so serious to take care of, you don’t think about anything else.
“During the pandemic, I think everybody – worldwide – was thinking about their own families.
“Now we are back, we will have time to talk.”
When previous jobs at a higher level have become available, the 46-year-old is one of the first names linked. However, he reaffirmed his commitment to his current club, saying: ““We still have a contract. We are here. It’s so good to be here.”
As previously mentioned, Wolves are keen to see the Portuguese remain at Molineux. He has already played a vital in their rise, and it will be key for the future progress of the club. A new manager may not have the same effect he has had on the Wolves squad, which could be disastrous for the west Midlands club.
