Wolves boss preparing for ‘biggest game for club’ in years

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo believes the FA Cup clash against Manchester United is the club’s biggest game for many years.

Wanderers, who clinched promotion back to the Premier League last season, face United at Molineux on Saturday evening for a place in the semi-finals at Wembley. They have not been in the competition’s last four since 1998.

“It is the biggest game for the club for some time, we are aware of that,” said Nuno.

Wolves have won the FA Cup four times, but not since their last triumph in 1960.

Asked if he was aware of the club’s history in the competition, Nuno said: “Of course, and we want to make it happen again. But there is a lot of hard work ahead to repeat what happened in the 40s, 50s and 60s. It was easier back then.”

Wolves face a rejuvenated United team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has won 14 and lost just two of his 18 matches in charge.

“There are some changes but the quality is there,” said Nuno. “They are a very good team in a very good moment. The performances and results have been fantastic. The big moments they have had have been fantastic. Ole is doing a fantastic job.”
