Many Wolves fans have been left to slam a managerial update from Fabrizio Romano on Bruno Lage.
As per a tweet from the Italian football journalist and transfer guru, the Midlands club have contacted the former Benfica manager as their ‘main option’ to replace Nuno Espirito Santo.
Should Wolves hire Lage?
Talks are ongoing and he is currently the favourite, with the final decision to be made soon.
It is a huge jump from the Portuguese top flight to the Premier League, and the fact that he could not win the title in his own country with a big team like Benfica is of concern to several members of the Molineux faithful.
Given that he has no prior experience of managing in English football either, a lot of WWFC supporters are wandering whether he has what it takes to succeed Nuno, especially given the success that he had in bringing them up from the EFL Championship and achieving two consecutive seventh-placed finishes.
Wolves fans on Lage update
These Wanderers slammed the managerial update as it was shared on Twitter:
“Why would we want him? He’s achieved nothing.”
“I really hope this isn’t true”
“Massive backwards stepping”
“He’s a terrible manager”
“If it’s Lage, this will show no ambition, one poor season at Benfica, Seville and Porto manager would show we are looking forward, Lage just a Mendes client, like Zenga!”
