Reliable journalist: Top-of-the-table manager responds to reported Everton interest

By Guy Giles

Sky Sports journalist Guillem Balague has stated that Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo will reject any advances from Everton as they look to fill their vacant managerial position.

Balague had first reported on Twitter that Everton were keen to bring Santo to Goodison Park after Wolves’ promising start to the season under the Portuguese:

But now Balague reports that Santo has been told of Everton’s interest and does not want to make the move, “even if the best team in the world comes calling.”

The Portuguese coach started out in management with Rio Ave in his homeland, before moving away to coach Spanish side Valencia. A move back home to manage giants Porto followed before he was sacked after a trophy-less season.

Wolves took a chance on Santo and brought him to the Midlands, with his top European experience making him an interesting appointment.

Santo has turned Wolves into an exciting prospect this season, making ambitious moves in the summer transfer market for players such as Ruben Neves, the club record signing, and bringing in Diogo Jota on loan from Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.

Everton have obviously noted Santo’s impressive start to life in England, but it looks like the Portuguese is happy in Wolverhampton.
