NUNO ESPIRITO SANTO believed Wolves’ win at Manchester City was reward for their continued belief and hard work after a difficult start to the season.

The victory was only their second in the league this term and came after a midweek Europa League trip to Turkey.

Manager Nuno said: ‘I’m very proud. It was a very good performance — but more than the performance was the work the players did.

‘It is very difficult to play against City because they are so good and move the ball so fast. It requires a lot of high-speed running. The boys worked very hard and that was good.

‘I am happy and satisfied because this is how we work. Sometimes we perform better than other days but the motivation to compete is always there.

‘This is what makes me more proud — having a fantastic group of players that want to grow and believe in the way we work. Now we have a challenge to sustain this level.’
