Wolves confirm Bruno Lage as new boss on a three-year deal


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

Lage was previously assistant to Carlos Carvalhal at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea before joining Benfica, where he won the Portuguese title in 2019.

The 49-year-old was previously assistant to Carlos Carvalhal at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea before joining Benfica, where he won the Portuguese title in 2019.

“I’m happy, excited, with a big ambition to do great things for this club,” said Lage.

“I’m very happy. 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,” added Lage.

“I want to create a good dynamic with all the departments of the club. I have tried to link all together to start to build up the new cycle.

“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.”

Nuno, who took charge at Wolves in 2017, won the Championship in his first season before guiding the club to successive seventh-placed finishes in the Premier League.

He stepped down last month after the club finished 13th despite only signing a three-year contract extension to 2023 in September.

Lage has been out of work since leaving Benfica last June after 18 months in charge.

He took over the Lisbon club at the start of January 2019 and they ended the season as champions. However, the following campaign was not as good and Lage was dismissed in June 2020.

Lage never played football professionally and began his coaching career at Vitoria Setubal’s academy at the age of just 21 in 1997.
