Wolves need more time off before new season, says Santo

Daniel Podence of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Johann Berg Guomundsson of Burnley

"We have a tight schedule next season and they must be aware of the health of the players". As I say though, the score we achieved in Piraeus is a good one, but can not be relied upon to deliver a quarter final berth.

"The only pity is we should be at Molineux for the quarter-finals". I'd say City '74 Forest '80, Arsenal 1998 or Watford past year (our semi's), possible / probable candidates as likely bigger BUT if we get to the semi's in this competition, well.?

"It is exciting to be in the last eight - we started before everybody", said Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

"Football gives us good moments, bad moments, but it's so enjoyable to compete". It's going to be tough but let's make this final effort.

Wolves were awarded the penalty after eight minutes when Olympiakos goalkeeper Bobby Allain upended Daniel Podence in the danger zone.

This match will feel even more significant for Wolves given their failure to qualify for next season's competition, falling out of the top six on the final day of the Premier League season after taking just seven points from the last available 18.

Striker Jimenez stroked in his 27th goal of the season from the spot but Wolves needed Patricio to ensure they progressed. Huge credit has to go to him and there will be lots of big clubs looking at him, but I hope and think Wolves will keep hold of him.

"We've made a fantastic journey after only a year and this is one of the best season's for Olympiakos in Europe".

"I prefer not to speak about VAR, I prefer to watch the game and talk about after".
