The former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Stale Solbakken has said that he would have certainly changed things around had he given more time.
The Norwegian manager was recently given the sack by the club after a poor run of results that left the team in the 18th position. They are just a few places and points above the relegation zone, which have urged the board to act quickly. Wolves were only recently relegated from the Premier league and they cannot go through the relegation. This would severely hamper the future of the club. Hence, despite being appointed only in the summer, the club had to relieve Solbakken of his duties.
The 44-year-old, who is now entitled for compensation close to £ 1 million, has said that he is extremely disappointed to have lost the job because it was great to work at the club. He has full confidence in his players and his tactics that he believes he would have done a better job if he had been given more time. Solbakken has admitted that he knew beforehand that he had lost the faith of the owner Steve Morgan. He has said that the performances of the team in the last four matches have been good to suggest that the form would improve.
“I feel so sorry, I have never felt so bad, because I love working here, and because there will be much better times ahead and I will not be part of it. I’m very, very disappointed to have lost my job at this time. I feel down because Bjorn Sigurdarson, Tongo Doumbia, Georg Margreitter, Bakary Sako and Razak Boukari will be very good players in England, together with the established players," said the former Wolves manager. The club are currently just six points above the relegation zone and are in the 18th position.
