Several managers have been linked with the vacant job at Wolves and Jorge Mendes is seemingly spinning a number of plates and Sabri Lamouchi appears to be one of the contenders, but former Wolves striker Steve Bull claims there is no chance of that happening.
Lamouchi was previously the Nottingham Forest boss when they came within a whisker of finishing in the play-offs, before a run of three wins in their final 15 games saw their hopes destroyed and they ultimately missed out on goal difference.
Would Lamouchi be a good appointment?
There have been reports linking the Frenchman with a move to Molineux as Mendes has offered the current Al-Duhali manager’s services to Wolves’ hierarchy, as they hunt for a sufficient Nuno Espirito Santo replacement.
The former Forest manager only spent one season at the City Ground and having never managed higher than the Championship in England, Bull wants him nowhere near Wolves, as he exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“Once you have managed in the Championship that is your limit. I’m not being funny to those managers but that is their level. So for him to take over at Wolves, it would be a massive job.
“So I don’t think that Lamouchi, who got the sack from Nottingham Forest will get the job, he’s got no chance at all.”
It appears that Bruno Lage is the man who could be set for the hot-seat and he must be prepared to try and fill some very large shoes as Nuno was a fan favourite at Wolves who everyone trusted.
Lage has only ever been a first-team manager in the top flight of a division once and that was at Benfica during the 2019/20 season which did see him amass an impressive 94% win percentage in the league.
