Wolves boss Nuno: Europe not on agenda

Wolves boss Nuno insists Europe isn't on their agenda after victory over Watford.

Wolves, who have not played in Europe since 1980, are now four points clear of Watford and Everton in seventh, with Leicester, who play Arsenal on Sunday, six points behind.

If the Hornets lose to favourites Manchester City in next month's FA Cup final, seventh in the Premier League will yield a Europa League qualifying spot.

But Nuno says: "The final of the FA Cup still has to be played, so why should we be worried about anything else? It was never our aim to compete in Europe.

"Competing in the Premier League is very hard, we must know were we came from. Last season we were playing against Burton, with all my respects, and now we are here.

"We have achieved staying in the Premier League - no one has said that - and now we are going to be in the top half. Last season we were in the Championship.

"We are not thinking about it. It (seventh) doesn't guarantee anything. We have to prepare for the final game at Molineux [against Fulham]."
