Following Nuno Espirito Santo’s departure after the 2020-21 season, Wolves have found an ideal replacement as their manager.
Wolves have just found a replacement for Nuno Espirito Santo as their new manager at Molineux Stadium.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have appointed former Benfica boss Bruno Lage to take charge of the coming 2021-22 season. After being removed by the Portuguese outfit in June 2020, Lage has been searching for new opportunities.
It will be interesting to see how Nuno’s fellow countryman will guide the club which has been struggling throughout the last campaign. As it stands, Lage will join the new Wolves squad to begin the pre-season next month.
After his official unveiling, the Portuguese spoke on the club’s official website: “First of all, I’m very happy. It’s a big opportunity. I’m very happy because I’ve returned to this country, and to be the manager of a big team.”
“It’s a team and a club that wants to do history and a chance to compete in the Premier League. So, I’m happy, excited, with a big ambition to do great things for this club.”
“I’ll be trying to know everyone, to see what the club has to offer, and my first idea is to try to link everyone together,” the new manager added. “I want to create a good dynamic of the group, with my staff, with all the departments of the club. I have tried to link all together to start to build up the new cycle.”
“I think it’s a good opportunity to understand what Nuno [Espirito Santo] did in these four years and my ambition is to continue and to improve what he did.”
