Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo couldn’t hide his delight following Wolves’ 5-3 aggregate victory over Italian side Torino on Thursday evening.

Leander Dendoncker and Raul Jimenez found the net as Wolves enjoyed a 2-1 victory on the night to secure their place in the Europa League group stages, and the first time that the Black Country side have reached the main stage of a European competition since 1980.

“It’s fantastic, isn’t it? It’s the work that started in the Championship two years ago, and then it’s building and building,” said Nuno, speaking to the Express & Star after the win.

“What these boys did is fantastic. It’s a small squad and they deserve a lot of credit along with the staff and people behind the scenes. 

“It’s very important for us. It’s massive. Massive.” 

On if he is especially delighted to have done it with a perfect record, Nuno said: “Of course, as it’s so hard. 

“It’s travelling to different teams. We played on a plastic pitch (against Crusaders), which was so tough. 

“Then we played Pyunik. It was tough. But here in Molineux, it’s been fantastic. We perform so well at home and the fans really push us. 

“They’re the 12th man, so congratulations to them. They’re going to see big games. 

“And we want to play, we want to compete. 

“We’ll sit down and watch the draw. That’ll be a pleasure for all Wolves fans.”
