Report: Wolves now considering appointing Bruno Lage’s former boss as his replacement

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly considering hiring Carlos Carvalhal as Bruno Lage’s replacement.

According to, Carvalhal is one of a number of coaches Wolves are considering as their new manager.

The West Midlands side sacked Lage on Sunday after a string of poor results.

In reality, the problems have been evident for some time, with scoring goals a major issue at Molineux right now.

New signing Diego Costa made his debut on Saturday, and he could help ease their issues in front of goal.

However, it will be the responsibility of a new manager to fix that problem now that Lage has been dismissed.

The report suggests that Wolves are considering 56-year-old Portuguese manager Carvalhal to help them stay in the Premier League.

Wolves considering Lage’s former boss Carvalhal

Wolves fans may be aware of Carvalhal from his time in charge of Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City.

Carvalhal has played against Wolves more than any other English club, securing three wins, two draws and two defeats.

While at Sheffield Wednesday, Lage was his deputy, and the pair won on their last visit to Molineux working together.

Carvalhal is the managerial equivalent of a journeyman striker, and is currently in charge of Emirati side Al-Wahda.

Al-Wahda is his 20th club job, and he only joined them in June, but has now been linked with a move back to Europe.

However, he’s not just been linked with a move to Wolves, with The Star reporting he’s on the shortlist for the vacant Hull City job too.

Carvalhal has worked closely with several former Wolves players, such as Rui Patricio and David Jones.

He’s sure to be on the phone to them shortly if he’s approached by the West Midlands club.

Wolves have already been linked with a number of managers since yesterday’s news.

They’re also apparently interested in a manager who Jose Sa and Daniel Podence have already backed to be ‘ready’ for the Premier League.
