Nuno says he was ‘very, very happy’ for one Wolves player yesterday

Nuno Espirito Santo has hailed Wolves match-winner Morgan Gibbs-White after the 2-1 victory over Brighton.

Gibbs-White scored his first Premier League goal in the dying stages at Molineux as Wolves came from behind to win.

Lewis Dunk’s red card was a huge turning point in the match and Neal Maupay was also sent off after the final whistle.

As per the Shropshire Star, Nuno was full of praise for the young midfielder.

“He did a good job. He had a good game full of movement, especially in the second half,” said Nuno on Gibbs-White. “He started on the right but then he came inside and did well.

“It shows character to get the balance and be focused again after that awful mistake he made.

“So, I’m very happy for Morgan. He should be proud of the work he did, and not only in this game.

“I’m very, very happy for Morgan. He’s a young boy with a good attitude, so let’s keep on going.”

Nuno made sure to point out that it wasn’t just yesterday that Gibbs-White has impressed him.

Scoring goals will always grab the attention, but it’s clear that it’s more than that which caught Nuno’s eye.

There should be a real chance for Gibbs-White to impress in the closing weeks of the season.

Wolves have nothing left to play for, but seeing a young, homegrown player flourish would offer optimism ahead of the next campaign.
