Former Arsenal attacking midfielder Paul Merson spoke highly of Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno on the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports Football last Saturday afternoon (1:40pm, February 9, 2019).

Merson seems to rate Nuno highly, and believes that the Wolves boss is going under the radar.

The former Aston Villa and Arsenal star has also said that top clubs in Europe could come for the 45-year-old former Valencia and FC Porto boss.

Merson said about Nuno on the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports Football last Saturday afternoon (1:40pm, February 9, 2019): “I think this manager is really good and he never really gets a mention. We always talk about the team. I think he’s a special manager.

“I think Wolves have to be careful. I think this man can go and I think he can manage at the top, top, top level. That’s no disrespect to Wolves. But i think this man goes under the radar.

“I think top European teams as well, if it’s not just our Premier League, I think they will come looking for this man. I think he’s a special manager, I really do.”

Brilliant manager

Nuno is a brilliant manager, and what he has done at Wolves since he was appointed in the role in the summer of 2017 has been absolutely superb.

The Portuguese boss did well when he was at Valencia and Porto, and he has only enhanced his reputation with his work in the Premier League so far.

It will not come as a surprise to anyone if top clubs in Europe come for him in the summer of 2019, and while Wolves fans will be proud to have such a good manager in charge of their team, they will probably be a bit worried about his future, especially if the Wanderers end up seventh or eighth in the Premier League table this season.
