"This is what we show against Sevilla - a good team, with a strong identity and committed to the challenge".
"We have been able to create an identity", said Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves on the eve of the clash against Sevilla. It's one of the most precious things in football - having an identity, based on a style of play and how we deal and socialize with our rules and tasks, how we deal with problems that happen. Trying to create a team, recruiting players, some take time, some not, but this is what it's all about.
"I am very proud", he said in a pre-match press conference.
"Tomorrow, I will want to beat him because I want Wolves to go through, but he's a very special coach and I'll be saying thank you to him because he started my career".
Dan Williams and Sean Phillips, who both wore Wolves shirts to watch the match at Jacks Cafe and Bar in Wolverhampton, said they were confident the players could pull through.
Nuno's side will be facing a team in form with Sevilla unbeaten in 11 matches since the restart.
"Especially tonight, of course we played late so it'll be a odd one tomorrow morning for some of them. because they probably won't sleep for a few hours".
Since their promotion to the Premier League for the start of the 2018/19 season, Wolves have been in the upper reachers of the division.
"They are a really tough opponent who will worry us and will ask a lot of us".
