Former Wolves winger Matt Jarvis has given his reaction to Sky Sports Nes about the departure of Nuno Espirito Santo.

Jarvis’ was asked about the decision for Nuno to leave the club by mutual consent at 3.05pm on 21 May.

Jarvis was full of praise for the Portuguese for the job he’s done over the course of four years at Molineux.

“I was very surprised. What he’s done for the club is absolutely incredible,” said Jarvis. “It’s only ever been success.

“What he has done has been magnificent. The fans say ‘in Nuno we trust’ and that’s what’s happened. I know the training sessions are very hard and it’s paid off.

“I do think it’s a shock decision but maybe it’s one of those where he feels he’s taken the club as far as he can possibly go.


“It would have been amazing (to play for him), he’s all about the pace going forward – the pace in attack would have been amazing to be a part of.”

“It’s always a sad one when you leave but he can hold his head up high. I know from the players he worked so hard on the training field and he improves players. That’s what you want from a manager.

“There will be so many clubs out there wanting and he won’t struggle for a new job. It won’t be long before he’s in a new job.”

It appears former Benfica boss Bruno Lage is Wolves’ top choice to replace Nuno, continuing the Portuguese influence which has run through the club’s rise to the top.

Current Porto boss Sérgio Conceição – another Portuguese boss – is also under consideration apparently.
