The first time Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo really smiled in a Zoom call on Friday was as he discussed the business of making players better.
'When that happens, it's really special,' he said, grinning almost boyishly. 'That's what it's all about. And it will always be about that.'
At Wolves, the improvement of players and the purchase of very good ones has led to the emergence of an exciting team. Before Saturday's home game against Arsenal, Nuno's team are sixth in the Premier League, two points off the Champions League places.
