Nuno Santo says it is very difficult to control emotions at dramatic moments
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has suggested that he might repeat his on-field celebrations again, having been hit with a fine of £8,000 following his wild celebrations in his team’s 4-3 victory over Leicester City in the Premier League last Saturday.
Nuno Santo ran on to the pitch to celebrate with the players after Diogo Jota’s injury-time winner sealed a pulsating victory for Wolves at Molineux.
Wolves led twice at 2-0 and 3-2 but Leicester fought back equally well, with Wes Morgan equalising with his header in the dying stages of the match.
Jota capped off an enthralling game of football to seal three valuable points for Nuno Santo’s side, who currently sit 8th in the Premier League standings.
Wolves continued their fairytale return to top flight following a six-year absence and up next for them is a trip to Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup, having knocked out Liverpool 2-1 in the last round.
And Nuno Santo suggested that he might have to dip into his wallet to pay the FA again, suggesting that it is very difficult to control the emotions at such dramatic moments.
“Everybody knows it is hard to contain those emotions in such a special moment,” Nuno said on Friday.
“Last minute of the game, last goal, it gave us such an important victory. I tried to be as far away as possible to avoid the situation.
“But I maintain my opinion the referee made the right decision but at the same time, I think everybody understood why I went onto the pitch.
“It’s very difficult to say I won’t do it again. I think that goes for everybody, managers and players. It is such a moment of thrill that sometimes you cannot contain yourself – it’s difficult.”
