Wolverhampton Wanderers' manager Nuno Espirito Santo praised his players for their win over Manchester United in the FA Cup on Saturday night.

Talking to the BBC, he said: "I'm very proud of the players. We had composure, shape, good running. Very well done to the boys and it was a fantastic atmosphere.

"It means a lot because we know how big Wolves were in the 1950s and 1960s and there are people in the stadium who have memories of that. To try to achieve the same is much, much harder now but we will try step by step. We will respect everybody in the semi-finals."

The side's captain, Conor Coady, looked back on the journey to reach the milestone of a win over one of the world's biggest clubs, saying: "We have some phenomenal players going forward. This takes us forward, two years ago we were in a bad place and these people are going to follow us and I can’t tell you how proud I am of everyone.

"It is a deserved result we were outstanding. From start to finish we nullified them they are an unbelievable club with talented players, we said before in the changing rooms we have the chance to make history and we now have the chance to go through again.

Raul Jimenez, who scored against United, was also delighted: "It was an incredible night. We know we can do it and make special things here. We are in the semi-finals and we are very, very happy

"We make history, we want more and I am happy for all these people every game."
