Wolves were shocked to the core as a football club when they found out that Nuno Espirito Santo would be leaving after four successful years, and legend Steve Bull has exclusively given his verdict to The Transfer Tavern on reports that they could name his successor within three weeks.
There have been several managers linked with the job but whoever does get handed the reigns will have to build upon the solid foundations that Nuno left as well as adding a few quality additions this summer.
Should Nuno have stayed at Wolves?
It appeared to have gone a bit stale at Molineux this season as Wolves fell drastically from back-to-back seventh-place finishes all the way down to 12th as well as shipping 52 goals and only scoring 36.
Wolves’ hierarchy will be hoping for a swift appointment so the new manager has a full pre-season and transfer window to mould the team into his own but Bull feels it may still take weeks to find the right manager, he told The Transfer Tavern:
“I’ve read in the paper that they’re going to make an announcement in the next 2-3 weeks, so they must have somebody lined up but who knows?”
It appears that former Benfica manager Bruno Lage is an early contender for the job given his nationality and links to Jorge Mendes, who always has a large say at what happens at Wolves.
There have been reports that one of the reasons that Nuno decided to walk away from Wolves was because of a lack of funding he was set to receive this summer despite the squad needing obvious additions.
