Nuno Espirito Santo has defended Raul Jimenez from accusations of being disrespectful to Watford by his goal celebration at Wembley.
The Wolves striker came in for some flak for donning a Mexican wrestling mask as he celebrated his FA Cup semi-final goal in the 3-2 loss to the Hornets.
Watford striker Troy Deeney was among those who took umbrage, but Nuno feels it was not offensive at all. “What I like is for Raul to score many goals.
This is what I really want,” he said. “It was not disrespectful. If you look at it, it’s a cultural thing in Mexico, so it was not intended to be disrespectful to anyone. “It was just celebrating a moment of joy.” Nuno is now looking forward to taking his side on their second warm-weather training break to Marbella, which was planned prior to last Sunday’s defeat and follows Saturday’s Premier League match against Southampton. “This was planned, and we are proceeding with the plan, going to the training camp to regroup and become stronger for the next games,” he said. “It’s been good (previously).

It allows us to be in a different environment, but spending more time together.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
