The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Dan Barnes

WOLVES striker Nouha Dicko is con­fi­dent that he and his team-mates can reach new heights un­der man­ager Nuno Espir­ito Santo.

The former Porto and Va­len­cia chief is the new man in the Mo­lineux hot­seat this sea­son, the former goal­keeper hav­ing signed a three-year deal to suc­ceed Paul Lam­bert.

Nuno is em­bark­ing on his first spell man­ag­ing in Eng­land but 25-year-old Dicko, who has twice been capped by Mali, be­lieves that Wolves are im­prov­ing lit­tle-by-lit­tle un­der their Por­tuguese chief.

“The Cham­pi­onship is a tough and long sea­son but if we keep win­ning, we’ll have the con­fi­dence to keep go­ing,” said former Wi­gan Ath­letic man Dicko, who also feels that Wolves’ play­ers can de­velop along­side their man­ager.

“The gaf­fer is try­ing to make us un­der­stand his vi­sion. He doesn’t just im­pose his ideas – he’s lis­ten­ing with us and try­ing to make us un­der­stand.

“With small things, we are im­prov­ing each day.

“At the train­ing ground, he’s try­ing to make us feel we can im­prove as play­ers and that’s the most im­por­tant thing for foot­ball play­ers – to think we can im­prove un­der a man­ager.

“We’re here to keep grow­ing and im­prov­ing. Hope­fully we’ll all grow with him.”

BE­LIEF: Nouha Dicko
