Wolves mulling over managerial change after West Ham defeat

Bruno Lage’s position is in major doubt on Saturday night

Wolverhampton Wanderers are taking into consideration the dismissal of head coach Bruno Lage, according to reports.

The struggling Midlands-based outfit, of course were back in action earlier this evening.

In the midst of an alarming spell of form, Lage’s troops kicked their campaign back into gear on the back of the international break with a trip to the London Stadium, to face West Ham.

Wolves were aware ahead of kick-off that a defeat would see them leapfrogged by their hosts on the day, to slip into the Premier League’s bottom-three.

And, when all was said and done, face up to the early-season threat of relegation to the Championship is precisely what the visitors were forced to do.

This came as goals on the part of Gianluca Scamacca and Jarrod Bowen guided West Ham to the right side of a 2-0 final scoreline.

And, as alluded to above, Wolves’ latest defeat could prove to have altogether serious repercussions on the bench at Molineux.

This comes amid claims that the sacking of Bruno Lage is now being taken into genuine consideration.

As per a report from The Telegraph, the powers that be at Wolves ‘are considering the future of head coach Bruno Lage’.

The Portuguese’s position moving forward, in turn, is viewed as being in major doubt, with the possibility not ruled out that Lage could be sent on his way before his side make the trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea next weekend.
