Nuno: 'Wolves start from zero'

Nuno Espirito Santo wants Wolverhampton Wanderers to forget the 3-2 first leg victory over Torino. “We start from zero.”

Wolves won the first leg 3-2 in Turin and will host the Europa League play-off decider on Thursday evening.

“It's a new game, the result (from last week) doesn't mean anything, we start from zero, this is the way we approach it,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

“We are really embracing all the games we have in front of us. We want to compete and perform against Torino, a very tough opponent.

“The players want to play, they want to raise their game, improve and play. They look at the game of tomorrow, not further ahead.”

Toro had a strong start to their Serie A season, beating Sassuolo 2-1 at the weekend.

“We saw how difficult it was last week – it's a very good team with very good players, good manager. We saw the game against Sassuolo and the difficulties are there, we saw the quality of the squad and we're aware of that.”

Wolves are unbeaten so far this season in nine games between Europa League qualifiers and the Premier League.

“It's been good. For all the club it's a new experience, I think we prepared well and the way we've dealt with the travelling has been fantastic.

“It has to do with the preparation we decided to take, we knew we had to start earlier and travel a lot. When the qualification started against Crusaders and Pyunik, these were the games we wanted to keep on growing and improving.

It's always the same philosophy, game by game. All the players have been involved in all of the games and the answers have been very good. That doesn't mean it's over. We're only starting the season and have a lot of things to improve on.

“A full house at Molineux, what could be better? It's important for us, the help that the fans give us, the way they push the team and enjoy going alongside the team with us.

“The intimidating aspect, I don't know, but we enjoy playing at Molineux in front of our fans.”
