Wolves: Old Gold made ‘brave decision’ by not appointing new manager

Wolves: Old Gold made ‘brave decision’ by not appointing new manager -Follow up

Wolverhampton Wanderers made a ‘brave decision’ by revealing they are not appointing a new manager until 2023, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Davis to remain in charge

The Premier League side were on the hunt to find Bruno Lage’s successor following his sacking earlier this month but were rejected by their top two candidates – Julen Lopetegui and Michael Beale.

Chairman Jeff Shi has since revealed that the board have decided to keep Steve Davis in charge at Molineux for the rest of this year in the hope that more applicants will become available by the time Fosun re-enter the market.

The Latest: Jones reacts

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones was surprised that the Old Gold are putting an appointment on hold, and believes that they may find it hard to beat other competitors to the same candidates should they also be looking for a new boss.

“It’s a brave decision to say you’re going to leave it until after the World Cup because suddenly your rivals are changing managers and quickly looking to fix the situation, and that means you’re going to be going after pretty much the same people in the same market.”

The Verdict: Wrong decision?

Wolves wanting to wait for a more suitable candidate to become available is understandable, but with the position they are currently in, it was the wrong decision to make when desperately in need of a change.

The Midlands outfit remain second from bottom in the table, with Davis winning just one game from his opening four, conceding nine goals and averaging just 0.75 points per match (Transfermarkt).

If this poor run of form is to continue whilst he’s at the helm, Wanderers could find themselves in an unsalvageable position come the end of the year, which is exactly why they should have continued their search.
