Jota Hails Nuno’s Influence

Wolves midfielder Diogo Jota says coach Nuno Santo has played a massive part in his development in the last 12 months.

The 21-year-old has been ever-present in the Wolves starting XI following his move from Atletico Madrid.

He helped the club achieve promotion from the Championship and he has since made eight appearances this season in the Premier League.

Jota is tipped to go far after a thrilling start to the campaign but he has thanked Nuno for having confidence in him.

He told the club’s official website: “He is an ambitious coach and we are ambitious players. We link well and he always gives us good advice in every moment, even at bad times he knows how to react and deal with us.

“When in a good moment he knows how to keep us going, so we have a good relationship with him.

“Nuno brought a new identity to the club, even for me the system is different. Before last season I never played in the system with five at the back, but he brought a way to live football which is completely different.

“Even when we played at Old Trafford, it is a magnificent stadium, but he passed us the message that it’s possible to win because it’s just 11 against 11, and with the international players we have, we don’t feel that pressure.”
