Bruno Lage has been sacked by Wolves after 16 months in charge following his side’s 2-0 loss at West Ham United on Saturday.

Wolves have started the season in very poor form and have picked up only one win from eight Premier League matches so far.

That came against Southampton at the start of last month but consecutive losses against Manchester City and the Hammers have convinced the board to make a change.

The situation has of course not been helped by their struggle for goals so far this season, scoring just three times in eight matches despite a raft of new signings, including Portugal internationals Goncalo Guedes and Matheus Nunes.

Austrian forward Sasa Kaladzjic was also brought in but suffered a season-ending knee injury on his debut to further deplete their forward line.

Last season they finished tenth in the table but a dismal end to the season saw them win none of their last seven fixtures and the decision has been made to make a change.

No news has been announced about a replacement though one is not expected in time for their next Premier League game away at Chelsea next week (Chelsea 2/5, draw 19/5, Wolves 17/2 – Match Betting).

Speaking after the West Ham game in what proved to be his final match in charge, the Portuguese boss gave his apologies to fans and said his players were working hard to try and get back to form.

“The only thing I can say is that I’m sorry about the situation,” Lage told reporters.

“We’ve tried to solve these little problems we have and at the moment we aren’t getting points or goals, but we are working hard for them.”
