Former Wolverhampton Wanderers managing director Laurie Dalrymple has commented following the news that Nuno Espirito Santo will leave the club today.

Nuno leads the team for the final time against Manchester United at Molineux, and it is set to be an emotional affair with a small number of fans back in the stadium.

Nuno is leaving after four brilliant years in charge, and the tributes are bound to be fantastic today.

There has been an outpouring of gratitude from Wolves fans on social media since Friday’s announcement, and now former chief Dalrymple has spoken.


The now CEO of Harlequins wrote on Twitter: “‘Nuno had a dream, to build a football team’. Nothing but love and respect for this man and everything he’s achieved.

“He rebooted a football club and brought together a whole city. What a remarkable achievement, from a remarkable person. Sing his name loudly today.”

Dalrymple said at the time of Nuno’s appointment back in 2017 that if the club got the recruitment right under his guidance, then it could kick on (via Express & Star).

Promotion to the Premier League, back-to-back seventh place finishes, an FA Cup semi-final and a Europa League quarter-final can certainly constitute ‘kicking on’.

It is those fantastic achievements that Wolves fans inside the stadium and far beyond will reflect on today.
