Wolves: Steve Davis will be manager until World Cup

Wolves: Steve Davis will be manager until World Cup - Premier League News

Wolves will keep Steve Davis on as interim manager until the Premier League ends for the World Cup break after Michael Beale rejected the role.

The Lowdown: Beale turns down job

Wanderers have been on the lookout for a new boss since Bruno Lage was sacked earlier in the month, but finding a successor has been a difficult task.

Julen Lopetegui had to turn down the job for family reasons and then in the last 48 hours QPR manager Beale has also rejected the gig, opting to focus on his promotion charge in London.

Davis has been in temporary charge since Lage’s dismissal and it looks as though he is here to stay, for the time being at least.

The Latest: Davis to stay on

Writing on Twitter, Cook said that the 57-year-old will now be in charge at Molineux until the World Cup begins in the middle of November:

“As suspected Wolves will stick with Steve Davis until the World Cup break. Rob Edwards could possibly form part of his backroom team.”

The Verdict: Right decision?

Considering Wolves have missed out on two of their main managerial targets, it now makes sense to stick with Davis for the next three or four weeks.

There isn’t much time for a new boss to come in and get his ideas across before the squad breaks up for a month or so, especially if the new arrival were to be third choice after Lopetegui and Beale, so waiting until after the World Cup is a shrewd decision.

Davis is doing a solid job as interim manager, too, winning 1-0 at home to Nottingham Forest last weekend, so he should be trusted to tackle these next five games before the break.
