What Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo said ahead of tomorrow's game

“I'm expecting a very tough and demanding match.

 

"Newcastle has a good manager in Steve Bruce, I know him well, and he has quality players, talented players, and it’s going to be a very tough.

 

“They are a very tough opponent, and all the matches we’ve had against Newcastle were very competitive, very intense, and we expect the same for Sunday.

 

“I'm absolutely sure that it is very early in the competition to establish any kind of difference between teams.

 

"I think every team is improving, every team is taking time and needs time, so as the competition goes by, it will be much harder, because the standards will grow.

 

“That's what I see in us, in Newcastle, and they are a very good team with very good players.”

20:07a month ago

Steve Bruce on the pressure of being Newcastle boss

"As manager of Newcastle, criticism will flow.

"Hopefully, we can now produce a performance."
