Steve Bull: Wolves boss Nuno will wonder what fuss is about

By Steve Bull | Wolves | Published:

With Nuno thinking the way he does, he will probably be wondering what all the fuss is about given he has 16 months left on his contract.

If he had just six months remaining on his deal, I think we would all be panicking.

But Nuno, of course, will just be focused on his day-to-day work as Wolves boss, preparing for every game that comes along in great detail.

It would be lovely for the club to come out and announce soon that Nuno has put pen to paper on a multi-year extension.

However, while it is understandable that some are concerned, Nuno and Fosun both know what they are doing. There is no immediate rush.

Come the summer, I’m sure the situation will have been sorted out.

Like it would be with a star player – Raul Jimenez, Adama Traore – you are waiting for the contract to be signed.

Nuno, though, has made it clear that he loves Wolves. It is in his heart.

He has revealed he is yet to receive the offer of a new deal, but there was no element of frustration when he said it.


The Portuguese seems relaxed and does not come across as the type of person to complain about those kind of things.

Nuno is a down-to-earth person and really seems happy here.

And I think if they did offer him a contract, he would love it.

If Wolves see out the season strong, naturally, clubs will be sniffing around him.


Arsenal were linked earlier this term and a similar club are bound to show interest at some point.

I think a club like Arsenal, Manchester United or Chelsea, though, would not represent a massive step up in terms of where he could take them over the next few years.

If it was Liverpool, Manchester City, Barcelona, Real Madrid or Juventus, it would be different, of course.

He has unfinished business here, though, and will hopefully get the players he wants in the summer to push us forward further.

Finally, away from the football, I just want to say thanks to everyone who turned up to our Jersey Boys tribute night at Molineux on Thursday and helped us raise £4,000 for the Haven Wolverhampton.
