Wolves on Sunday announced the sacking of manager Bruno Lage after a disappointing start to the season that has seen the Premier League side languish in the relegation zone.
Wolves slipped to their fourth defeat of the season with a 2-0 defeat at West Ham United on Saturday, which saw them sit 18th with six points from eight games.

Lage, 46, took over Molineux from fellow Portuguese Nuno Espirito Santo before the start of last season and led Wolves to 10th place overall.
Wolves, who have won just once in their last 15 league games, have struggled in front of goal, with their three goals this season being the lowest in the top flight.
“Bruno is an excellent coach, a hardworking and dedicated manager and a warm, wise and honest man,” Wolves chairman Jeff Shi said in a statement.
“It has been a pleasure working with him and his staff throughout their time at Wolves, so it is with great sadness that we have to make a difficult decision.
“I honestly have no doubts about Bruno’s ability and I’m sure he will find success elsewhere, but the form and performances of the team over the past few months mean we have no choice but to act.”
