Next Wolves Manager Odds

Wolves are on the search for a new manager following the sacking of Bruno Lage on Sunday after their 2-0 loss to West Ham United on October 1st.

The Molineux club are currently 18th in the table with just nine points from 11 matches, despite a summer transfer spree of £123m - seeing them sign some high-profile Portuguese players such as Matheus Nunes and Goncalo Guedes.

Bruno Lage finished with a record of 19 wins and 10 draws in 51 matches with Wolves having taken over from Nuno Espirito Santo at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Nuno Espirito Santo Odds: 3/1

Former Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has reportedly been in talks for a return to Molineux.

The 48-year-old currently manages Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Ittihad where he has won five and drawn three of his first eight matches in charge. Prior to this, Nuno had been Tottenham's manager, but, his reign at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium lasted just 17 matches before being sacked.

The Portuguese coach was a huge fan favourite at Wolves, having managed them 199 times, winning 95 and drawing 49 between May 2017 and May 2021, when he left of his own accord. Nuno famously won the Championship with them in 2017/18, and even oversaw their seventh-place Premier League finish in 2018/19 - a feat which qualified his side for the Europa League.

Nuno is priced at 3/1 for a sensational return to Wolves - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

Peter Bosz Odds: 4/1

Recently sacked Olympique Lyon manager Peter Bosz is on the lookout for a new job.

The 58-year-old notably came to prominence when he managed Ajax to the Europa League final in 2017. During his only season at the Johan Cruijff Arena, Bosz didn’t win a trophy, but, got a lot of recognition for developing a good young side containing the likes of Davinson Sanchez, Mathijs De Ligt and more.

Following his spell in Amsterdam, Bosz had an unsuccessful spell at Borussia Dortmund in the 2017/18 campaign, winning just eight of 24 matches. However, his next job in the Bundesliga would be at Bayer Leverkusen, where he took charge of 108 matches, winning 59 and drawing 16, securing a Champions League place for the club in 2018/19.

Bosz managed Lyon between May 2021 and October 2022, winning just 46% of his 59 matches in charge, resulting in his sacking.

This would be a good chance for the Dutchman to restore his managerial reputation, as Wolves have a capable squad with good technical passers of the football.

Bosz is priced at 4/1 to be Wolves’ next manager.

Marcelo Gallardo Odds: 11/2

Former River Plate manager Marcelo Gallardo is another that has been touted for the job, despite being yet to prove himself on the European stage.

Gallardo has had a successful managerial career back in his homeland of Argentina with River Plate, who he played for during his playing days.

The 46-year-old’s managerial career actually started at Nacional in Uruguay where he won the Primera Division in his first and only season in charge.

Gallardo’s next job would be at River Plate, where he would go down in the club’s history as an iconic figure, having won the Copa Sudamericana in his first year, before winning the Copa Libertadores in 2015 and 2018 on top of the 11 other major trophies.

Gallardo is priced at 11/2 to be the next manager at Molineux.

Pedro Martins Odds: 7/2

Ex-Olympiakos manager Pedro Martins is also on this list, having left the Greek side in August.

The 52-year-old won 143 games in charge of Olympiakos and drew 42 of 221 matches in charge, culminating in three league titles and a Greek Football Cup.

Martins managed to get the job at Olympiakos by impressing at the likes of Vitoria Guimaraes where they won 36 and drew 15 of 80 games he took charge of and even made it to the final of the Taca de Portugal in 2016/17.

Wolves are priced at 7/2 to appoint Martins as their next manager.

Ruben Amorim Odds: 8/1

Sporting Lisbon manager Ruben Amorim was previously the favourite for Wolves job having impressed during his time at José Alvalade Stadium.

The 37-year-old took over as Sporting manager in 2020 and managed to win the Primeira Liga and Taca da Liga in his first season, before retaining the latter last campaign, on top of winning the Supertaca de Candido Oliveira. Amorim’s management has put Sporting back on the map in terms of regularly qualifying for the Champions League.

Prior to this, Amorim had managed Braga where he won the Taca da Liga in 2019/20, meaning that he has won the Portuguese League Cup in each of the three seasons that he has been a manager of a top-flight club having initially started out at Casa Pia.

Amorim is priced at 8/1 to be Lage’s successor at Molineux - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet sip!

Julien Lopetegui Odds: 13/2

Former Sevilla manager Julien Lopetegui is also on this list of candidates to replace Lage.

In his time at Sevilla, he managed to oversee them win the Europa League back in 2019/20. Prior to this season, Lopetegui had managed to make Sevilla into a club that regularly qualifies for the Champions League, however, they struggled to cope this season following the departures of Jules Kounde and Diego Carlos - resulting in the Spaniard leaving the club.

Prior to this, Lopetegui had been sacked by Real Madrid after winning just six of his opening 14 games - his appointment at Real actually saw him be sacked as Spain manager in the run-up to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The 56-year-old had made a good name for himself with FC Porto in Portugal between July 2014 and January 2016, as he managed to win 68% of his matches there.

Lopetegui is priced at 13/2 to be named as Wolves’ next manager.

Sean Dyche Odds: 14/1

The final manager on this list is former Burnley manager Sean Dyche.

In his nine years at Turf Moor, Dyche built himself a reputation for being able to manage low-budget sides to success, having earned promotion from the Championship with the Clarets in 2013/14 and 2015/16.

During his time at Burnley, Dyche even lead the club to the Europa League qualifying stages following a seventh-place finish in the 2017/18 campaign.

Due to his Premier League experience, the 51-year-old would arguably be one of the most suited candidates for this job, especially when considering that he would have an even bigger budget than that supplied to him at Turf Moor.

Dyche is priced at 14/1 to become Wolves’ next manager following the sacking of Lage.

Andre Villas-Boas Odds: 25/1

Andre Villas-Boas is also in contention for the job at Molineux, despite not managing a side since February 2021, when he was sacked by Marseille for criticising their board.

The 44-year-old will be fondly remembered by fans of FC Porto having won four trophies with them in 2010/11, before struggling to make a mark at either Chelsea or Tottenham Hotspur.

Villas-Boas did get his managerial career back on track with Zenit St Petersburg as he won the Russian Premier League, Russian Super Cup and Russian Super Cup between March 2014 and May 2016.

After his spell in Russia, Villas-Boas moves to Shanghai SIPG where he won 30 of his 51 games in charge, before moving on to Marseille where he coached them to a second-place finish during his only campaign in charge.

Since February 2021, Villas-Boas has taken up a career in the World Rally Championship, but seems primed and ready for a return to management.

Villas-Boas is priced at 25/1 to return to the Premier League with Wolves.
