After former Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Walter Zenga was appointed as Cagliari boss on Tuesday, many Wolves supporters flocked to Twitter in order to debate their ex-gaffer’s legacy at Molineux – with the Italian dividing opinion.
Zenga, who was sacked just three months into his reign at Wolves during the 2016/2017 Championship season, leaving the club in 18th around mid-October, has since been appointed by mid-table Serie A side Cagliari – with the news prompting Wolves supporters to debate his merit on social media.
During his short stint in the Black Country, Zenga managed to secure a shock 2-0 away win at promotion favourites Newcastle but also fell to a humbling 4-0 defeat at home to newly-promoted Barnsley. Given the temporary nature of his appointment, it could be hard to say whether he would have gone on to turn things around, with these Wolves supporters split over the man himself despite the fact his ‘heart is still broken‘ over the club (The Athletic).
One fan did point out, however, that Zenga ‘actually cared‘ – here’s how they discussed Zenga’s new role on social media…
Personally I thought he was class and actually cared. Would’ve preferred him all season to half him half lambert
