The coach of the Spanish national team has confirmed that he was close to clinching a managerial position with the Wolves just before the Spanish Football Federation indicated their interest in him.

Julen Lopetegui who was made coach of the Spanish team during summer said he had been in contact with the owners of the Sky Bet championship club, Fosun International, a Chinese consortium that had recently bought the club in summer.

Edwards Backs Manager Walter Zenga to Turn Things around

Wolverhampton coach Walter Zenga is a man under pressure owing to poor results at the start of the campaign, but David Edwards claims that the manager has the full support of the squad.

It is not normal that a manager receives a vote of confidence from the playing staff. Edwards backing the manager will have substantial consequences given that there are rumours about the club preparing to sack the manager. Appointed only in the summer, the Italian has so far seen the club claim only four wins out of the 14 league matches. The club has not won any game in October and one has to go to the win against Brentford towards the end of September for their last victory.

Zenga wants to find killer instinct

This is Walter Zenga’s first season as the head coach of Wolverhampton Wanderers as the Italian coach was appointed as the manager of the English League Championship on July of 2016 and so far things haven’t been going in the way that Walter Zenga desired after having suffered a number of underwhelming results.

The 56 year old Italian coach was recently enraged about the performance of his squad when they faced off with Barnsley and lost 0-4. All of the goals of that match were scored in the 2nd half and after the goals began pouring down, Wolverhampton just appeared to give up and Walter Zenga was furious about this.

Expectations are high for Wolverhampton Wanderers

For a fee of £40 million, former owner of Wolverhampton Wanderers Steve Morgan decided to sell the English club as a Chinese conglomerate took over the Championship League club and the club is now expected to do significantly better than before as the new owners have revealed their desire to offload cash in reinforcing the team with players or whatever that might be needed.

The new Chinese investors that have purchased Wolverhampton Wanderers have already started to dish out a significant amount of cash as Ivan Cavaleiro was signed during the summer transfer window for a fee reported to be in the region of £7 million which is a club record. A few other players have been signed as well during the recently shut down transfer window.
