Nuno Espirito Santo’s replacement, former Benfica coach Bruno Lage, has finally been confirmed by Wolves.
Molineux officials have been looking for a replacement for Espirito Santo, who stepped down at the end of last season after becoming dissatisfied with the club’s transfer prospects for the coming season. The club has been interviewing a number of prospects, but Lage has emerged as the front-runner after owner Jeff Shi initiated talks with the 45-year-old last month.
Lage, who previously worked as an assistant manager at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City under Carlos Carvalhal, stated in his first interview with the club that he wants to produce ‘big things’ at Molineux whenever he returns to England.
‘First and foremost, I’m overjoyed,’ he added. ‘This is a huge opportunity.’ I’m overjoyed to have returned to this country and to be in charge of such a large staff.
