Wolves journalist Alex Dicken has been sharing his thoughts on Old Gold manager Nuno Espirito Santo and his current situation at the Midlands club.  

This comes after Dicken made an appearance on a recent episode of the Liverpool Echo’s Blood Red Podcast where he previewed the upcoming Premier clash between Wolves and Jurgen Klopp’s side.

easy one to start off with, who currently sits top of the table?

On the subject of Espirito Santo and his current situation at the club in regards to whether or not he is under pressure with his job security at the moment, Dicken had this to say on the matter. (6.25)

He said: “Personally, I think Nuno is going to get the time to see over another summer and see over the start of next season, see how that goes.

“But I don’t think Nuno is in as strong a position, as he once was. Talking about getting rid of Nuno would never, ever have crossed anyone’s mind six months ago, but now there’s probably an argument, to say he hasn’t really done that well this season, the ’s not performed, there’s been key injuries, but some of the things he’s done have been quite confusing really, changing the formation when he did, and not going back quickly enough to what Wolves have known, was frustrating for many fans and I think he lost a lot of credit.”

Nuno was appointed as Wolves’ manager back in 2017 and has since gone on to take charge of 189 games with the club prior to their match against Liverpool, in which they have won 93, drawn 45 and lost 51 along the way (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Alex Dicken’s comments on Nuno…

Given how Wolves have had a mixed bag of Premier League results so far this season, winning nine, drawing eight and losing 11 games prior to their Liverpool match, it’s understandable why the question has been raised on whether or not Nuno could be under pressure at the moment, especially since he managed to finish the previous two seasons with Wolves in seventh place in the league table.

Do you think Nuno is still the right man to manage Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

No

In our view, Nuno should be given the chance to help the team move forward and progress from wherever they end this season at.
