Wolves boss Santo not worried about the table ahead of Arsenal clash: We take every game as chance to improve
- Nuno Espirito Santo is not worried about were Wolves will finish this season.
- He is happy with the progress of his team who have only got promoted to the Premier League this season.
- The manager is also delighted with what his side have achieved with a limited number of players.
“There’s no reference to the table, the reference is to grow, to improve game by game. Every game is a chance to improve. We have a fantastic opportunity to become a better team, trying new things, but at the same time trying to make players grow on the idea that we want regarding the future.
“This is what we focus on until the end, there’s no thinking about the summer or next season, it’s a game by game process. It’s a clear idea that we’ve been building since day one. We started in the Championship, nothing has changed. There’s no reference of the table, it’s a squad and group of people who want to work together and improve every day.”
Luckily for Wolves, they don't have fresh injuries. Santo has been relying on more or less the same linu-up throughout the season as his team don't have enough reserves to be introduced in the squad.
“We started with 18 players, two went out on loan (in January), and we stayed with 16 plus the goalkeepers, with the back-up of the under-23s. It’s credit to the players – the way they work, the way they respect themselves, when they are here but also when they are at home. Of course here is a big part of it – the way they work, the way they rest, the way they recover.
“It’s credit to the players and, sometimes, some luck, to avoid what happens in football – knocks, all these things, but we have been able to sustain them and keep doing it well. I don’t like to talk about injuries because these things can happen, but fortunately we have been strong and holding up quite well in the competition.”
