Wolves: Peter Bosz now a genuine contender in manager hunt

Wolves: Peter Bosz now a genuine contender in manager hunt - Premier League News

Former Lyon manager Peter Bosz is now a contender to become Bruno Lage’s successor as Wolverhampton Wanderers manager, according The Telegraph’s John Percy.

The Lowdown: Wolves’ manager hunt

The Old Gold have been on the hunt for the last two weeks as they search for fresh direction to lead them to Premier League safety at the Molineux.

First choice candidate Julen Lopetegui was approached for the role after recently being dismissed by Sevilla, but the former Real Madrid head coach cited personal reasons for his rejection.

Former Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo has also been heavily touted with assuming the role, but journalists Nathan Judah and Liam Keen revealed the 48-year-old is not the preferred candidate at this stage in negotiations.

The Latest: Percy’s news

Percy has shared an update on Wolves’ search late on Monday night, citing a new candidate who could take over at the Molineux.

Taking to Twitter, the journalist claimed:

“Wolves interview former Lyon and Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Bosz for head coach job. Bosz is on the shortlist.”

In the attached article, it is said the Dutchman impressed in talks with the Midlands club and consequently has become a strong contender to take on the job.

The Verdict: Great pedigree

Having most recently been in charge at Lyon, Bosz has a wealth of experience under his belt.

Whilst in charge of the likes of Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund and Ajax, the 58-year-old has become known for his attacking style of football, with a ‘thrilling’ fast-paced system influenced by his time learning under Dutch legend Johan Cruyff.

Peter Bosz at Wolves?





Bosz is a two-time Champions League participant with the German clubs, also spending six seasons in the Europa League, having finished as runner-up in the 2016/17 season with Ajax (via Transfermarkt).

With such experience at the level Wolves want to be aiming for, Bosz’s appointment at Molineux would be a welcomed surprise – but the race to become manager remains firmly open.
