However, according to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Arsenal have made Nuno their number one target to take the job on a full-time basis, with contact already being established between the two parties.
'I could well even simply not ever mention a challenge that's not a actuality. "It requires a lot of effort from them, flights and travel, on a night like this, that's what makes us proud". That is what makes us proud, the journey which we started together in the Championship.
"We can look back on it, an absolutely fantastic achievement, and where this club's come from, it's absolute night and day".
But Braga maintained their grip on top spot in Group K courtesy of second-half goals from Paulinho and Fransergio.
"But I'm extremely proud because it's the same group of players from the start, the same group of players that are trying to grow".
The visitors endured a quiet start, but Jonny had too much space left to place a flawless cross at the far post to allow Jimenez to score his 15th goal of the season.
"He is a very good manager", said Jiménez.
"The season has been long and it was another demanding match".
"Second half not so good, not so well organised, allowing passes to Braga that unbalances and conceded in situations that we must improve".
"It was our 26th game, we started very early in the season, but the balance has been good and the team is improving". "We don't have limits, we always try to keep going", said Nuno, who has been linked to Arsenal this week.
But Braga kept their grip on first-team K with second-half goals from Polinho and Francisco.
"We pushed hard, stayed organized and got good combinations, so of course we finished the goals, the way the team reacted to the game was good. For the fans to come here and support us the way they did is wonderful, so thank you to them, and we keep on going".
