Wolves have been handed a boost in their hopes of appointing a new permanent manager as a big update has emerged regarding Vitor Pereira.
The Lowdown: A move on the cards?
The Old Gold have been without a permanent manager in the dugout since the decision was made to sack Bruno Lage earlier this month.
Since then, the Midlands club have won one and lost three of the four league games that Steve Davis has had in interim charge, leading to reports that the club could go back on their decision to stick with Davis.
Now, they may have a potential breakthrough on their hands over the possibility of seeing Pereira become their new head coach.
According to journalist Jorge Nicola (via Sport Witness), a behind-the-scenes update has emerged regarding Pereira’s current position in charge of Corinthians, with Wolves name-checked in the report.
It was reported earlier this week that Molineux could be a potential next destination for the 54-year-old.
Nicola said: “An important source of mine at Corinthians assured me that Vitor Pereira has already informed the president, Duilio Monteiro Alves, the football coordinator, Alessandro Nunes, and director of football, Roberto de Andrade, that he is not staying for the next season. He has a number of reasons that justify his decision.”
The Brazilian season ends before the World Cup.
Having managed several clubs across a wide variety of countries, the Portuguese manager took charge of Corinthians back in February.
With 58 matches under his belt at the Brazilian club, Pereira, known for an attack-minded set-up loosely translating to a 4-3-3, has seen his side win 26 of them, drawing 15 and losing 17 along the way.
Do Wolves need to appoint a new manager ASAP?
Moving forward, if the Wolves hierarchy feel that Pereira is the right candidate to take over from Davis, then his decision to part ways with the Brazilian club could be the first major step in making it happen.
