Nuno proud of Wolves in defeat, excuses Jimenez for penalty miss

Wolves main man

However, Lucas Ocampos' late header ensured their season ended 383 days after it had begun.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side were knocked out of Europe yesterday when they were beaten 1-0 by Sevilla, but it could have been so, so different.

Instead, Yassine Bono managed to keep it out, and despite the possibility the Premier League club could feel hard done to, given the goalkeeper perhaps being off his line and an encroachment, it's unlikely any of that was decisive in the save.

Wolves talisman Raul Jimenez had earlier seen a penalty saved as Sevilla booked a last four meetings with Manchester United, whilst the Black Country outfit will not play in continental competition next season after finishing seventh in the Premier League.

Liverpool fans on Twitter want Jurgen Klopp to sign Adama Traore after his performance for Wolves during their Europa League defeat to Sevilla on Tuesday. The stray challenge looked to be the only way to stop the Wolves man.

'Trying to create a team, recruiting players, some take time, some not, but this is what it's all about.

"It's a small squad and we must be really proud, but now we need to make good decisions so we do not make mistakes like we did before". We need to rest, a big break.

"It is time to reflect and analyse". 'A long journey that started three seasons ago in the Championship.

"The disappointment can not take away from all the good things we've been doing". The club has been fantastic.

"Sevilla made us run, we made a big effort to control it but of course there were players who gave everything and the legs and brain doesn't work so good".

In the other two quarter-finals, Inter Milan defeated Bayer Leverkusen and Shakhtar defeated Basel.
