Nuno Espirito Santo has made the Premier League manager of the year shortlist.

The Wolves manager has secured European football next year provided Watford don’t beat Man City in the FA Cup final.

It has been an incredible year for Wolves in their return to the top flight after 6 years.

Fosun has done wonders for Wolves since 2016, and Nuno should be crowned the Premier League’s best manager for the 2018/19 campaign.

Nuno is up against Pep Guardiola (Man City), Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool), and Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham) for the coveted manager of the year prize.

Man City, Liverpool, and Tottenham are higher up the Premier League table, but Nuno deserves to be crowned the year’s best coach.

Pep Guardiola’s Man City appear bound to lift the Premier League trophy, but that’s what anyone would expect.

Liverpool has reached the Champions League final, but they bottled a huge lead at the top of the Premier League table and will now most likely finish 2nd.

And Tottenham are very fortunate to finish fourth as their peculiar inconsistency hasn’t been punished by the woeful Arsenal and Man United.

 

Meanwhile, Wolves have exceeded expectations by finishing seventh in their return to the Premier League.

Yes, the pack suffered poor results against the Premier League’s bottom five and Wolves were the catalysts of their own demise against Watford in the FA Cup semi-final, but the season has ultimately been a huge win for the club.

Nuno’s side has taken points from the top six clubs by playing attractive football; the manager has never sacrificed his philosophy to park the bus.

In his first outing in the Premier League, Nuno has been a revelation.

He plays attractive football and he never complains about officials.

His bond with the pack is unbreakable, and he never insults them with excuses.

He is the Premier League’s true manager of the year.
