Wolves: Old Gold plan ‘landmark hire’ with Julen Lopetegui ‘pushing’

Wolves: Old Gold plan ‘landmark hire’ with Julen Lopetegui ‘pushing’ -Wolves News

Wolves are plotting the ‘landmark hire’ of a new technical director, with the club’s new manager Julen Lopetegui ‘pushing’ behind the scenes.

The Lowdown: Lopetegui era begins…

The appointment of the 56-year-old signals a new era at Molineux after the sacking of former boss Bruno Lage in early October, but the ex-Sevilla manager will have a mighty job on his hands.

Wolves are currently bottom of the Premier League table having scored fewer goals than anyone else in the top flight, thanks largely in part due to some major attacking injuries.

That being said, Lopetegui’s experience of coaching in the Champions League, not to mention a Europa League winner’s medal, signals a potentially solid appointment at Molineux.

The Latest: Wolves plan ‘landmark hire’…

As per Football Insider, the Old Gold are plotting a ‘landmark hire’ at the request of Lopetegui behind the scenes.

It is believed that the Spaniard is personally ‘pushing’ for Wolves to hire a new technical director who he knows and trusts ahead of a potentially pivotal transfer window.

This comes as Wolves reportedly overhaul their set up following Lopetegui’s arrival in the Black Country.

The Verdict: Interesting news…

Incoming managers often want assurances that they can take mostly full control of transfers and all on-field matters, and Lopetegui appears no different.

It’s now up to Fosun to grant the 56-year-old his wish and appoint a chief technical director who is capable of both backing him in the transfer market and adhering to his various demands.
