Wolverhampton Wanderers should consider appointing Portuguese head coach ahead of 2017/18

Wolverhampton Wanderers supporters who can regularly be found in the Football Transfer Tavern have been pretty disgruntled with how their team has performed this season and the 15th placed finish which they secured has not been deemed satisfactory.

There is lots of speculation right now regarding the future of head coach Paul Lambert and it remains to be seen whether or not the club’s ambitious owners will let him carry on at the helm for another season.

Not only has there been talk in the media regarding the future of Lambert but also here in the Tavern among the Wolves fans who are desperately hoping that the club makes the right call regarding who will be in charge next season.

The former Norwich City and Blackburn Rovers manager is highly unlikely to get a stay of execution at the football club and it seems likely that he will be replaced by the hierarchy at the West Midlands-based club.

One man who Wolves should turn to is Hull City boss Marco Silva, who despite overseeing relegation from the Premier League, has shown a degree of management that wouldn’t be out of place in the Championship.

The Portuguese manager is out of contract with the Tigers this summer and Wolves could flex their ambitious arm with a move to secure the specialist head coach ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

A couple of ardent Wolves supporters are enjoying a bacon butty and a pint here in the Tavern and they are both in agreement that Silva would represent a real coup for the Championship, stating that his tactical sense would see Wolves have a far better chance of success than if Lambert carried on as head coach.

Wolves fans, would you welcome Silva to the club? Who else should be under consideration by the board? Let us know in the comments below!!!
