Wolves have appointed Julen Lopetegui as the new head coach. The Spanish international previously managed Real Madrid and Sevilla. 

Wolves had earlier approached Julen Lopetegui, but he turned down the Premier League side’s offer due to personal reasons.

As a result, Wolves approached Queens Park Rangers manager Michael Beale to succeed Bruno Lage, who was sacked in early October.

Michael Beale was close to joining Wolves but changed his mind in the last minutes as he chose to remain with Queens Park Rangers. 

Wolves decided to back caretaker Steve Davis to be in charge of the team until the end of the year as they look for other options. 

However, they had to approach Julen Lopetegui once again since the team languishes in the relegation zone. And this time, the Spanish international accepted Wolves’ proposal. 

According to Wolves chairman Jeff Shi, Wolves were interested in signing Julen Lopetegui from the beginning. Shi praised the 56-year-old, saying that he is a top coach with excellent experience at an elite level.  

“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. Since the very beginning, Julen has been our number one choice to manage Wolves, and we look forward to welcoming him and his team when they join us in the coming weeks.” Jeff Shi said, as per Sky Sports. 

Wolves interim manager Steve Davis said that Julen Lopetegui is the right choice for the team. Julen will officially take over as Wolves boss on November 14 before the World Cup begins. 

“It’s a top appointment and someone who we’ve been trying to get in for a while now. I’m just pleased that they’ve managed to get the person they wanted a while ago. He’ll arrive here at the end of next week. He’s a great appointment, and he’s somebody the club needs going forward.” Steve Davis said, according to Sky Sports.
