Yesterday was of course Nuno Espirito Santo’s final game in charge of Wolves.

Unfortunately, he was unable to sign off with a win, going down 2-1 to Manchester United.

On Match of the Day, Gary Lineker and Ian Wright were both keen to praise the work Nuno has done at Molineux.

He has laid the foundations which have made them an established Premier League club.

Even during a season unlike any other and shorn of their talisman, Wolves were never in any real danger of going down.

“Very unlucky with the injuries he’s had,” said Wright of Nuno. “Mutual consent, I’ve read, so maybe he’s taken them as far as he can go.

“Maybe he needs a break from it. Wolves, are now very much a Premier League outfit.

“He leaves with his head held high, I’d say.”

Host Lineker added: “Ultimately, a disappointing farewell for Nuno but he’s done a fabulous job there over the years and turned them into a real, proper Premier League club.”

Nuno took Wolves to new heights, and leaves as an absolute legend of the club’s modern history.

Whoever replaces him will take over an established Premier League side and that’s testament to the work he’s done since taking over.
