Nuno calls on Wolves to ‘regroup and bounce back’ after Southampton defeat

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has called on his players to ‘regroup and bounce back’ after they suffered a 3-1 defeat at Southampton on Saturday.

Nathan Redmond scored twice for Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side, either side of Wily Boly’s equaliser for Wolves, before Shane Long sealed the win in the second period.

The defeat was Wolves’ second in succession, having suffered a heartbreaking comeback defeat to Watford in the FA Cup semi-finals last week, and Nuno has called on his players to bounce back when they face Brighton next weekend.

“It is something that we have to look at because our defensive structure was not the best. After we conceded the opener we controlled the game well and made chances until we drew level. We then went behind and were not able to stand up again and the second half was poor,” Nuno told BBC’s MOTD.

“We left too many spaces and we allowed them to play. Today they were better than us and we have to regroup and bounce back immediately. Our trip to Spain was planned before and we feel it is a good moment to have an opportunity to train and be together.”
