The University of Wolverhampton has rewarded Wolves’ manager Nuno Espirito Santo with an honorary doctorate.

Nuno received the honour in front of the pack before Wolves’ final home game of the Premier League season.

Wolves beat Fulham 1-0 thanks to a nifty combination between Matt Doherty and Leander Dendoncker.

Doherty lifted the ball into Fulham’s box and Dendoncker slotted home with a sweet volley.

The win secures Wolves’ seventh spot in the Premier League table unless Leicester beat Man City on Monday.

The University of Wolverhampton honoured Nuno before kick-off.

Legendary striker Steve Bull joined Nuno on the pitch.

 

Per the Express & Star, Professor Geoff Layer said that the “university is thrilled to be recognising Nuno with an honorary doctorate of sport at the end of such a successful season for the club.

“In two years Nuno has transformed Wolves – his first season at Molineux was a triumph as he led the club to promotion and the Championship title, and now we have seen a successful start to life in the Premier League and a Wembley FA Cup semi-final.

“The University of Wolverhampton and Wolves have a close relationship – we sponsor the team, our students complete a variety of placements with the club and of course we are neighbours.”

Nuno – who was quite the sight in the traditional graduate robe and hat – thanked the pack for their support.

Molineux reciprocated by serenading the Wolves’ manager in “There’s only one Dr. Nuno” chants.
