Nuno Staying Grounded After Burton Win

Nuno Staying Grounded After Burton Win

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has said that the side did a 'very good job' in our defeat of Burton Albion at the weekend.

With goals on the day coming from Diogo Jota, Romain Saiss, Ruben Vinagre and Leo Bonatini it would our biggest win in two and a half years and our biggest away win since Crewe back in 2005.

Speaking to the Official Website as he met with the media following the game, the gaffer explained.

'It was a good game and a good result. A very good job! We wanted a reaction to the defeat at Sheffield United and we came here and we did it. We were very effective in our first attack with a beautiful goal which gave us the advantage in the game. When you score early like that then everything changes. I am very proud with the way the team managed the game from there.'

Santo went on to say.

'We showed that we can play in each stadium the same way and it was a big step for us but we have a long way to go. We showed something different was about reacting from the moment of the defeat with a new solution. It is never about doing anything one time - you have to keep on doing it and be consistent. Our opponents worked very hard. It was a tough game for us and we came here to respect them and the best way to do that was to make sure we were always in the game. Everyone knows what it means to get a good win going into the international break. We have some momentum and now some time to work with the players that are here.'

With a bright start to the season and Wolves sitting in second spot in the Championship table, Santo knew expectations had risen but he couldn't do anything about that.

'If there is more expectation, we cannot control what is going on outside or what is being said about us. All you can control is your daily routine and my boys do not get carried away - they know what they have to do. If you are a team that wants to succeed then every day you have to do something to make you better and try and achieve that maximum.'

He added.

'I am enjoying it here very much. We came here to build something, something that can make everyone proud. We are building something based on an idea and a philosophy of what we want and how we want to play. What I would say about the season so far is that we have a long way to go - a long way and a hard way as well. But we are in the right way and the boys should be very proud of the way they are working and the team spirit they are showing on a daily basis. It makes us think we have a chance of doing it but we will never ever think too high or getting carried away. Feet on the ground - and on Monday we go back to work.'
