In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Wolves Hall of Famer, Steve Bull, has urged his former side to back Nuno Espirito Santo this summer as he has to improve the squad and replace players.
Nuno has had to try and fill the void left by Diogo Jota last summer without signing a ready-made replacement, however Pedro Neto did provide glimpses of brilliance before his season-ending injury.
Speaking on why Wolves have to back Nuno this summer and how they still have to replace players that left last summer, Bull exclusively told FFC:
“We’ve had a shocker this year, but if that means coming 13th or 14th I’ll take that every season. I think the club have got to back him as we still haven’t replaced the likes of Doherty and Jota who left last summer, and Vinagre will leave this summer as well.
“I think they’re going to have to look deep in the market but we have a full pre-season as we’re not in the Europa League so they can start planning now. I’m hopeful they will back him and see what he can do with some money.”
Wolves will be hoping that when Raul Jimenez returns next season from his fractured skull they will be much more of a threat in the final third as they have managed to score just 35 goals in the league.
Jimenez has been out since November last year but he still remains their joint-third top scorer with three goals, only behind Neto, Ruben Neves and Silva.
