Wolves finally name new head coach as ex-Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui appointed



Julen Lopetegui

wolves (opens in a new tab) have named the former Real Madrid (opens in a new tab) and Seville (opens in a new tab) boss Julen Lopetgui as the new head coach, more than a month after sacking Bruno Lage.

Lopetegui’s appointment was announced on Saturday, and the Spaniard will officially take over from Monday, November 14, meaning his first game in charge won’t come until after the World Cup; he had previously turned down the job due to his father’s poor health. Like Lage and his predecessor Nuno Espirito Santo, the 56-year-old is a client of super-agent Jorge Mendes – a big influence at Molineux.
