Wolves have finally confirmed the appointment of former Benfica coach Bruno Lage as Nuno Espirito Santo’s replacement.

Molineux chiefs have been searching for a replacement for Espirito Santo after he decided to stand down at the end of last season having grown frustrated by the club’s transfer prospects for the new season.

The club have been looking at a number of candidates but Lage emerged as the number one candidate after owner Jeff Shi began talks with the 45-year-old last month.

In his first interview with the club, Lage – who was previously assistant manager at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea under Carlos Carvalhal – set out his desire to do ‘great things’ at Molineux and vowed to ‘improve’ upon the foundations Espirito Santo laid out. 

‘First of all, I’m very happy,’ he said. ‘It’s a big opportunity. I’m very happy because I’ve returned to this country, and to be the manager of a big team.

‘It’s a team and a club that wants to do history and a chance to compete in the Premier League. So, I’m happy, excited, with a big ambition to do great things for this club. 

He promised to ‘improve’ upon what his predecessor Nuno Espirito Santo started at Molineux

‘I’ll be trying to know everyone, to see what the club has to offer, and my first idea is to try to link everyone together.

‘I want to create a good dynamic of group, with my staff, with all the departments of the club. I have tried to link all together to start to build up the new cycle.

‘I think it’s a good opportunity to understand what Nuno [Espirito Santo] did in these four years and my ambition is to continue and to improve what he did.’
