The Portuguese has been honoured for the second time this season after guiding his side through a five-game unbeaten run in March and June either side of lockdown.

Speaking at his press conference ahead of Sunday's home clash with Everton, he said: "We are pleased with the award, but as you know, the words are for all the group, especially for the medical staff who allowed us to return safely in a good way.

"We had a photo yesterday and they are our true heroes because what they have done behind the scenes was huge for us and that was what made it possible for us to compete well in the return of the competition, so this reward is for them."

Meanwhile, Nuno was refusing even to think about a potential Europa League quarter-fnal clash with either Sevilla or Roma with Manchester United possibly waiting in the wings in the last four after Friday's draw revealed the pathway ahead.

He said: "There are so many 'ifs'. It can be this, it can be that, so it's very difficult for me to answer and make a proper evaluation because so many things can happen.

"Honestly, I don't even know what to say because I haven't thought about it. I'm only focused now on Everton, sorry.

"We are proud that we are involved - this says a lot about what we did the season before and how we have been working with all these challenges involved in all these competitions with a small squad. All these things make us very, very proud.

"But let's see. When it comes, let's face it."
