Nuno Espirito takes the final charge at the helm for Wolves on the final matchday when they take Manchester United. The match schedules for Sunday at Molineux Stadium with a kickoff at 6 pm.
A win this weekend will ensure Wolves finish off at 12th in the rankings, whereas Manchester United will end the 2020-2021 end campaign in the second spot regardless of the result at Molineux.
Nuno Espirito’s time in charge at Molineux came in question for several months after a series of dismal performances. Finally, however, the camp came with official confirmation that the 47-year-old will leave the club at the end of the campaign.
Moreover, the Portuguese signed a three-year contract extension at the camp last September. He leaves Molineux after leading the Wolves to back-to-back seventh finishes in England’s top flight. However, it is an underwhelming season finishing 12th with a total of 45 points.
Furthermore, the home side enters Sunday’s clash off the back of successive losses to Tottenham and Everton. However, they are winless in their last five matches with Man United in all competitions.
On the other hand, Manchester United remains fixed on next week’s Europa League finals with Villarreal. The Red Devils will end on the second spot in the Premier League despite a run of three matches without a win. It started with a loss to Leicester City and Liverpool and a draw to Fulham.
