HOPEFUL: Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo still thinks his side can qualify for the Europa League

WOLVERHAMPTON Wanderers were spotted training in Marbella ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Brighton.

The Midlands club jetted out to the exclusive Costa del Sol city last Saturday following their 3-1 loss to Southampton away at St Mary’s.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is hoping that the warm-weather training break at the Marbella Football Center will provide a boost to his side’s hopes of a Europa League qualification spot.

Wolves lost the chance to qualify for the Europa League via the FA Cup after losing to Watford 3-2 in a thrilling semi final.

They can however still qualify for the competition by finishing seventh in the Premier League, despite currently sitting in eighth behind Leicester City.

“We had a good week of training sessions and, at the same time, some social time together,” said Espirito Santo, speaking about the Marbella trip.

EXCLUSIVE: Last time Wolves were in Marbella they hung out at the upmarket La Sala Banus restaurant

Wolves’ last Marbella trip in February saw them dining at celeb hangout La Sala in Puerto Banus, but this time was a far more low-key affair.

The Premier League stars were largely kept hidden from the cameras, save for one eagle-eyed Wolves fan, Kay Fellows, 37, from Wolverhampton, who has an apartment in Mijas Costa.

Kay, her husband Ben, 39, and their two boys Hayden, 10 and Sonny 9 were lucky enough to snap their footie heroes as they trained at the Marbella ground.

“The security guard at the ground wouldn’t give anything away, just that Wednesday was their last day,” she said.

“We saw all the players,” added the mother-of-two, “except Neves who had just had a baby.”

Goalkeeper John Ruddy, defender Conor Coady and forward Raul Jimenez were among the Wolves stars pictured with Kay and her family before the squad flew back on Thursday.
