Wolves boss Nuno thrilled for matchwinner Willian Jose

Wolves boss Nuno was thrilled for Willian Jose after victory over Sheffield United.

Nuno couldn't hide his joy for Willian Jose after the Brazilian fired Wolves to victory over Sheffield United at Molineux on Saturday evening.

He later said, "He works very hard for the team, he links the game, he drops his lines, and the goal was missing. He had achieved in the previous game, but it was not allowed, but today it was, and I think he can grow from there. The obligation of scoring is not only the strikers, I think we have to produce more, we have to find better lines, to give the advantage for the strikers.

“He joined us very fast and immediately it was about getting him to know the idea and I'm very glad he found his goal today and he can grow and keep helping us."

Nuno added: "It was not the best first-half. It's been like that, but we've been able to react for the second-half. I think we did much better, the aggressivity was there, we fought more of the ball, we increased the tempo on our circulation, so we improved.

“We have to realise that we always play tough opponents, so some periods of the game they are stronger than us, and we can't play the way we want, but it's about reacting and adjusting, and getting on the front foot like we did in the second-half."
