Wolverhampton Wanderers manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, says his players know each other very well, and now he has to look for ways to improve.

For the first time in 39 years, Wolverhampton Wanderers qualified to European competition.

And for manager Nuno Espirito Santo this means the team is playing well, but that they can still improve.

“We started this season trying to develop, trying to improve,” he told The Guardian.

“We are not going back trying to repeat the same things we did the last pre-season. It doesn’t make sense.”

“After two years of working we are the same people, we know everything,” he added.

“We have to go and look for better solutions, trying to anticipate. I will not give you clues but football is gonna change.”

The boss explained: “The football you see now and are reflecting on this season, I will not say next season, but in two seasons’ time, is gonna change.”

“I will not tell you, but there are normal effects of when teams sit, they affect naturally the rest of football.”

“If you consider that… I am already telling you too many things,” he added.

“This is what we are trying to anticipate. All the managers are quite clear on how they want their teams to play, and how to perform.”

Nuno Espirito Santo concluded: “What I am trying to build and improve is, I know, I suspect, going to change.”

“I know a new cycle is coming. You look at that, you look at systems, tactical aspects. But I’m telling you, for sure, in two seasons the football in the Premier League will change.”
