Nuno Espirito Santo says he is looking forward to a ‘special’ return to Molineux as Tottenham travel to face Wolves this weekend.
The north London side travel to face Wolves on Sunday, in a fixture that will see Nuno return to his former side for the first time since taking charge at Spurs this summer.
The 47-year-old spent four seasons in charge of this weekend’s opponents and oversaw the club’s return to the Premier League, with the Portuguese admitting it will be a ‘special’ occasion to make his first return.
“It will be special,” he told his pre-match press conference.
“Four years of hard work, amazing, the fans so supportive and good to us. Only love and respect I have for the fans, for the club and for the players there. It was four years of our life we were together.”
Nuno admitted that he was unsure of the reception he would receive after leaving the club by mutual consent earlier this year, as Spurs look to build on their opening weekend win over Manchester City.
“I don’t know how they will be. I will go there focused but with a smile on my face.”
The Spurs boss also faced questions on Harry Kane for what feels like the five millionth time this summer, the striker having returned to training as speculation continues to surround the forward’s future.
Nuno refused to confirm whether the 28-year-old would be part of the travelling squad for the trip to Wolves with the England captain keen to leave Spurs this summer and sign for Manchester City,
“He trained today. He trained good,” he said. “He will train tomorrow and tomorrow we will make a decision.
“I’m so sorry to keep saying the same things but this is how we work. It’s a day by day situation. The decisions are made when we feel we should make them and we are going to take the decision who will travel tomorrow.”
On a resolution to the Kane situation: “Honestly, it’s not unfair or fair for me. It’s the reality. The reality needs to be taken care with wise decisions. The decisions we make go day by day. All the players involved in training sessions are options for us. The squad is the squad.”
