Next Wolves manager odds: Sporting head coach leads former Tottenham and Burnley bosses in betting market
Bruno Lage has been sacked after 16 months in charge at Molineux as Wolverhampton Wanderers become the latest Premier League club to begin the search for a new manager.
Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to West Ham United at the London Stadium proved to be the final game of Bruno Lage’s tenure as Wolves head coach.
The former Benfica boss was sacked on Sunday following the loss to the Hammers and the Molineux side are now looking for his successor.
Lage had been in charge for 16 months, having taken over from countryman Nuno Espírito Santo in June 2021, and managed 19 wins from his 51 matches in charge across all competitions.
He led Wolves to a tenth place finish after his one full season in charge in 2021/22 as well as the fourth round of the FA Cup and third round of the Carabao Cup.
Given their recent track record of appointments, it might not come as much of a surprise that another Portuguese coach leads the betting market to become the next permanent manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The list of candidates is dominated by managers who have never worked in the Premier League but do have plenty of experience either in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League or Europe’s other top divisions.
However, there are still a handful of coaches who have worked in England’s top flight featuring in the market including former Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Burnley gaffers.
Here is how the early betting market to become the next permanent Wolves manager looks:
