Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espírito Santo has revealed that the club are yet to meet with his to discuss a new contract, despite his current deal expiring at the end of next season.
Nuno has enjoyed a hugely impressive spell in England, transforming Wolves into genuine contenders for European qualification and attracting reported interest from the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal as a result.
He penned a one-year contract extension last summer but is yet to agree on an entirely new deal, and Nuno confessed (via The Independent) that there has been no sign of an extension whatsoever.
“They haven’t [spoken to me], I didn’t have any proposal. There was no proposal on that,” he revealed.
“I have one more year of contract so I don’t think about that. I signed last season, I renewed for one more year and I have one more year. When you sign something you stick to it.”
While such a revelation might come as a bit of a concern for Wolves fans, Nuno insisted that he is not thinking about leaving the club, adding that he is perfectly happy with everything going on right now.
“I’m happy with the group of players, the way we work. Yes, I’m settled,” he said. “We started three seasons ago, not only me but a lot of people moved and changed their lives to come to Wolverhampton.
“Players came with us since day one, that’s why I say it’s my life because I’m 100% here and I give everything I have to help improve the players and help the club. We signed it and we are committed to it. [The fans] can be totally assured every day Wolves is my obsession, I don’t think about anything else.”
Fans will certainly want Nuno to stay. His side currently sit ninth in the table, but they are just two points behind sixth place, with Wolves one of several sides who have disrupted the traditional ‘big six’ sides.
“I am reluctant to call it the ‘big six’ because I think it’s a very, very, very good league,” Nuno added. “Any team is very difficult. What’s happening this season can happen again next season, but you never know.
“I think the game is changing. There’s not so much difference between the teams now. All the squads are impressive in quality and the managers, the way they prepare their teams, improve the quality of the games, so I see smaller gaps between teams.”
