Some Wolves fans want 'attacking' 48-year-old manager who's also been linked with Spurs
A number of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have welcomed reported interest in Paulo Fonseca, a manager who has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur.
Wolves are on the lookout for a new manager after it was announced earlier this week that Nuno Espirito Santo would leave the Premier League club at the end of the 2020-21 season.
Spurs are also searching for a new permanent head coach after sacking Jose Mourinho last month, with Ryan Mason in interim charge until the end of the campaign.
The Mirror claims that Wolves have set their sights on Fonseca, who will leave Roma at the end of the season, with Mourinho set to take the reins.
Last month, meanwhile, Ian McGarry told the Transfer Window Podcast that the 48-year-old has been offered to both Spurs and Celtic.
Fonseca joined the Giallorossi in the summer of 2019, joining from Shakhtar Donetsk where he won the league and cup double in all three seasons with them.
The Portuguese also enjoyed spells at Sporting Braga, Pacos Ferreira and Porto earlier in his career.
As far as managerial candidates go, Fonseca is certainly a popular shout amongst Wolves fans, as per the below Twitter comments:
Fonseca is intriguing. He won’t completely change the style, but he will be more attacking. The fans would welcome his aggressiveness.

Would be perfect for us, attacking football and plays multiple formations. Has Mendes pulled some strings? This guy leaves Roma and Mourinho was announced almost immediately.

Fonseca has won trophies as a Manager. It shows that Fosun and Jeff aren’t willing to accept mediocre and want to kick on #wwfc

Bold move by fosun if true. Very bold. Hopefully they can get fonseca. Looks like a good fit for our current squad. Plays 343 and 4321 but likes to press, pass fast and utilise wingbacks. More evolution than revolution. #wwfc
