Wolves have been in and out of the Premier League, Championship and League One for the past couple of decades but have been a top-flight side for the last five seasons now. Two seventh-place finishes in consecutive seasons may have set the standard that the club would like to maintain but they have yet to find a replacement for the departed Nuno Espírito Santo that can take them there.
Bruno Lage lasted just over a season in charge of Wolves before being sacked and now it’s the turn of Spainish manager Julen Lopetegui to take the reins. Improvement is needed in the Wolves team and the club is on the search for a manager who can get the best out of their players.
Julen Lopetegui is a Spanish professional football manager and former player who was born on August 28, 1966, in Asteasu, Spain. As a player, he was a goalkeeper and played for several Spanish clubs including Real Madrid, Las Palmas, and Rayo Vallecano. He was also part of the Spanish national team, although he didn’t play many games.
Lopetegui’s career as a football manager started in 2003 when he became the coach of Rayo Vallecano. He then went on to manage several other Spanish clubs such as Real Madrid Castilla, FC Porto, and Sevilla FC. He also had a brief stint as the head coach of the Spanish national team.
In his career as a manager, Lopetegui has won several domestic and international titles, including the UEFA Europa League, Portuguese Primeira Liga, and Spanish Copa del Rey. He has also been nominated for several coaching awards, including the Best FIFA Men’s Coach.
In November 2022, Lopetegui was revealed as the new manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers. He replaced Bruno Lage following his sacking a month earlier with the then under-18s head coach Steve Davis having a brief stint as interim manager prior to Lopetegui’s appointment.
The former Spain and Real Madrid boss has only been in charge of Wolves for a matter of months but that may stop the club from sacking him should he not get results, even with a three-year contract in his draw.
Wolves are having somewhat of an unsecure season and a run of just a few bad results could see them get mixed up in a relegation battle.
The following names are favourites in line to be the next manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers should Julen Lopetegui be sacked.

Nuno Espírito Santo was in charge of Wolves for four seasons and guided them to a Championship league victory and two back-to-back 7th place finishes in the top-flight upon their return. However, finishing 13th the following season ultimately lead to his dismissal. Bruno Lage succeeded Nuno but lasted just a season before current manager Julen Lopetegui took over.
