Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has asked his players to remain focused after they secured a Europa League quarter-final clash with Sevilla.

Raul Jimenez’s penalty secured their spot in the last eight as Wolves beat Olympiakos 1-0 in their last-16 second-leg tie on Thursday, progressing 2-1 on aggregate.

It’s the first time Wolves have reached a quarter-final in Europe since 1972.

Wolves’ squad and staff gathered on the pitch after the match having extended a season that started more than a year ago, and Santo wants one final push.

“I told the boys, ‘OK our holidays must wait. We will have them, but not now’,” he was quoted as saying by thePress Association.

“It was the last game at Molineux this season, we miss our fans, it’s not the same but the boys must be proud. Let’s hope we are together again at Molineux.

“We started with Crusaders a long time ago, more than a year ago. Everyone has to realise that it’s been a long, long season. We’ve had a fantastic victory which allows us to be in the last eight, it’s huge.

“I don’t know how many miles we’ve travelled, it’s crazy. That’s what I said to the players.

“Football gives us good moments and bad moments but it’s also enjoyable to compete.

“Now we will rest and we’ll focus on Sevilla. We are going to face a very good opponent. It’s going to be tough but let’s make this final effort. It’s challenging ourselves.”
