Speaking to the club’s official website, Wolves main director Jeff Shi said: “I first got to know Nuno two years ago, and, at that time, we hadn’t taken over Wolves. But when talking to him, I was impressed by his football tactics.”

“Since the very beginning of the Wolves project, Fosun has been very clear on our strategic thinking and philosophy, and has huge ambition and confidence to achieve our goals.”

“In a sense, we are very glad to find Nuno with a football philosophy that is similar to ours.”

Shi was complimentary about Nuno’s past, acknowledging is previous successes.

“He has an impressive track record in the top divisions in Spain and Portugal, and took Porto to the knockout stages of the Champions League last season,” he said.
