Wolves appoint Lopetegui as new manager

Wolves have named former Spain and Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui as their new manager.

Lopetegui takes over for Bruno Lage, who was fired on October 2 after winning only one of his last 15 games in charge.

He will officially take over at Molineux on November 14th, following Wolves’ final Premier League game before the World Cup against Arsenal.

“Julen is a top coach, with excellent experience at an elite level of the game, and we are very pleased to have agreed a deal to bring him to Wolves,” Wolves chairman Jeff Shi said.

“Julen has been our first choice to manage Wolves since the beginning, and we look forward to welcoming him and his team when they join us in the coming weeks.”

We are excited to announce that Julen Lopetegui will take over as our new head coach on Monday, November 14th.

Sevilla fired Lopetegui in early October, two years after guiding the La Liga club to a record sixth Europa League title in 2020.

Wolves approached Lopetegui last month, but the 56-year-old Spaniard declined due to personal reasons, forcing the Midlands club to look elsewhere.
