Wolves boss Nuno admits his side ‘didn’t play well’ after Watford defeat

Wolves manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, was pulling no punches after his Wolves side lost 2-0 at home to Watford, today.

Santo’s team have started better than expected upon their return to the Premier League after last season’s promotion. However, Watford had too much for them at Molineux with goals from Etienne Capoue and Roberto Pereyra.

“We didn’t play well, particularly in first half. When you don’t perform well you cannot achieve a result.’’ He told the BBC.

“That minute with the goals, we must look at carefully. Two mistakes, two goals. In the second half, we had a better attitude. Even if you lose you must lose with dignity and we tried until the end.”

It’s certainly not panic stations for Wolves though, today’s game was only their second league defeat of the season and they find themselves in 8th position, at the moment.

Wolves did some great business in the summer transfer market, adding experience to their ranks to complement young talents such as the excellent Ruben Neves.

Santo and his team look to have set their sights far higher than just Premier League survival and it will be interesting to see exactly how they fare between now and May.
