Steve Bull says Nuno still watches Wolves, and praises Chiquinho

Molineux legend Steve Bull has said that Nuno Espirito Santo has told him he still watches most Wolves games.

The club’s all-time leading goalscorer caught up with the former Wolves boss recently for a game of golf in Vilamoura, something they had been meaning to do some time ago but couldn’t due to Covid.

Nuno has been out of work since being sacked by Tottenham Hotspur in November.

He was in the job for just a few months after leaving Wanderers, but Bull says Nuno is all well, and does still catch Wolves games.

He wrote in his latest Express & Star column: “Nuno is absolutely fine and just waiting for something to crop up. He’s enjoying his horses and his golf for the time being.

“We spoke about Wolves, but not too much. He watches most of the games that Wolves play and watches a lot of football in general as he monitors for any jobs that come up.”

Bull also had a word to say about Chiquinho, who has really been impressing for Wolves lately.

The youngster was Wolves’ best player against Manchester City, and then followed that up with another bright cameo display against Norwich City.

Bull added: “One player who does look promising is Chiquinho. He’s one for the future and will come in and out of the team. He looks like a good talent but he needs time to adapt to the Premier League and how Bruno wants him to play.”

Chiquinho can become a top player for Wolves in time

Chiquinho has certainly shown himself to be a real livewire since coming to the club.

He always looks absolutely hell-bent on making an impact, and doesn’t appear fazed by anything.

That he was scooped up for just £3 million (The Athletic) is very impressive business by the club.

And as Bull says, he is one for the future. With time, he could develop into a top Premier League player.

He has the natural attributes that make him extremely dangerous. And he appears to also have that enthusiasm and work ethic needed to become successful.
