Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has told the Birmingham Mail that he doesn’t think Nuno Espirito Santo gets enough praise for the work he has done at Wolves.
Spurs travel to Molineux this weekend looking to continue their good form under the Portuguese manager.
His compatriot has overseen 11 unbeaten games in the Premier League and last night reached the last 32 of the Europa League.
Wolves have enjoyed superb success since Santo arrived at the club and Mourinho believes his skills to be underrated.
He told the Birmingham Mail: “In my opinion, he’s not getting enough. He deserves more than what he’s getting. Fantastic work, fantastic work. I think he’s going to be happy with my words.”
The Molineux contest should be a real cracker on Sunday.
Tottenham have looked like a different team under Mourinho, whilst Wolves will stick their unbeaten league run on the line.
The Portuguese managers will both have ambitions but it will be important that neither looks much further than this weekend.
Mourinho will need to use his defensive knowhow to over Wolves. Santo’s team smashed four past Besiktas in midweek and it will be interesting to see how Tottenham line-up.
Both Spurs and Wolves will hold ambitions of cracking the top-four. Mourinho, in particular, will be keen to get Tottenham into the Champions League once again.
If he is to achieve that then beating teams like Wolves who hold similar desires is a must.
