Nuno Espirito Santo will leave his role as Wolves head coach after Sunday's season finale against Manchester United, the Premier League club have announced.

The Portuguese has spent four seasons in charge at Molineux, earning promotion from the Championship and guiding the club to the quarter-finals of the Europa League after the first of back-to-back seventh-placed finishes in the Premier League.

But this season has proved more difficult with a 12th-placed finish the best they can hope for on Sunday.

"Wolves can confirm head coach Nuno Espirito Santo will leave the club, by mutual agreement, after Sunday's match against Manchester United," a club statement said.

Commenting on his impending departure, Nuno admitted that he is expecting an emotional end to his tenure.

"Sunday will be a very emotional day, but I am so happy that the fans will be back in Molineux and we can share one last special moment together, as one pack," he said.
