Wolves to step up Julen Lopetegui pursuit after Sevilla sacking | Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves are preparing to press ahead with talks with Julen Lopetegui regarding the vacant managerial position following his dismissal by Sevilla, with the former Spain and Real Madrid coach selected as Bruno Lagg’s successor. The Wolves hierarchy has rekindled their longstanding interest in Lopetegui and they hope to recruit the 56-year-old.

Lopetegui was sacked immediately after Sevilla’s 4-1 home defeat by Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday and said goodbye to the fans on the pitch. The Wolves plan to ramp up the discussions in the coming days, and they won’t have to much of a payout.

Lopetegui was Wolverhampton’s owners Fosson’s first choice to become coach when he took the reins in 2016, when the club was in the tournament, but he accepted an offer to become Spain coach. Wolves appointed Nuno Espirito Santo, who led the club to promotion and a successive seventh place in the Premier League.

Lopetegui, like Nuno and Lage, is a client of super-agent Jorge Mendes, who is a huge influence at Molineux, and is eager to move to England. Several Wolves players have ties to the Mendes Gestifute agency. Wolves have not sought initial interest in former Olympiacos coach Pedro Martins, who is preparing to be appointed as Hull manager.

Wolverhampton, who slipped into the relegation zone after a 2-0 defeat to West Ham, visit Chelsea on Saturday with development coaches Steve Davis, former manager of Crewe and Leighton Orient, and James Collins in line to lead the team after training. this week.
