WOLVES BOSS Nuno Espirito Santo called his team “relentless” after their hard fought 3-2 success against Spurs, reports the Voice of Sport from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota both struck as Wolves came from behind twice to level, before Raul Jimenez fired home a stunning winner.
“We were relentless and stayed in the game. We started the second-half much better, more organised, pressing, recovering the ball better and scored beautiful goals,” said a proud Nuno.
“Good movements and technical (goals) and it’s good for the fans behind the goal that we were able to come from behind at such a difficult stadium – a lot of credit.
“The game is finished when it’s finished. It’s something we’ve been able to do, come from behind, and finish strong. At the same time, we should start the game better.”
The men in old gold have been noted for their never say die attitude since they returned to the top flight and the win in north London confirmed their ability to contest until the final whistle.
“The way the boys ran, it’s amazing, the energy levels we put in the game. They recovered very well, it’s a challenge and when you really embrace a challenge, you give everything that you have, and this is what we are doing, giving everything.
“We worked so hard. I was not very pleased at half-time because we didn’t start the game well. We gave too much ball to Tottenham. Tottenham have such quality players, we were unbalanced and it’s always very difficult.
“It was a very tough game. I have huge admiration for Jose Mourinho, for me he’s a reference, but today was Tottenham against Wolves.”
