Club legend Steve Bull says money needs to be put into Wolverhampton Wanderers to avoid a relegation scrap next season.
Nuno Espirito Santo, who has since taken charge of Tottenham Hotspur, mutually agreed to walk away from Molineux at the end of last term.
He has been replaced as head coach by fellow Portuguese Bruno Lage, who previously won the Portuguese title with Benfica.
Will Bruno Lage be a success at Wolves?
Wolves have been busy in the transfer market, with promising winger Francisco Trincao joining on loan from Barcelona and defender Yerson Mosquera trading Colombian outfit Atletico Nacional for the Premier League.
Rayan Ait-Nouri has also linked up with Wolves on a permanent basis following an impressive loan spell from French side Angers.
However, Wolves have been rocked by the news that Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio has left the club in favour of joining Jose Mourinho at Italian side Roma.
Bull has called for Wolves’ hierarchy to back Lage in the remainder of the transfer window.
He exclusively told The Transfer Tavern: “If we want to be in a dogfight or the lower half of the league next year, keep going the way you are.
“They’re dumping no money into the club and getting a decent manager in. Wolves fans have been sitting there for the last four years knowing we can give it a right go with the right manager and players intact.”
