Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo spoke to reporters after his side's fine efforts against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup last night, and offered high praise for both his players and the club's fans, as quoted by the club's official website.

The Portuguese has performed magnificently in his role as manager at Molineux, since his appointment in May of this year, and has drawn plaudits from fans and pundits alike for the manner in which he has galvanised his Wolves team.

They currently sit top of the Championship table, two points clear of second placed Cardiff City, and the Black Country outfit's fans are now looking at promotion to the Premier League as a very real possibility.

Wolves were desperately unlucky to lose to Pep Guardiola's City side on penalties last night, and Nuno delivered a message to the 6,200 fans who made the trip to the Etihad Stadium, as quoted by Wolves.co.uk:

“I am proud of the boys and I am proud of the fans – my first words go to them. There were 6,200 shouting and signing for Wolves all through the game. It was too bad they couldn't celebrate but it gives us hope for the future that together we are stronger."
