Time at Club:
Wolves sacked boss Walter Zenga after just 87 days. The club, 18th, decided to pull the trigger following a return of just one point from five games, leaving Wolves only four points above the relegation zone.
First Team Coach Rob Edwards has been placed in charge of the first team, while Nigel Pearson is the new favourite for the job, followed by Sam Allardyce, Marc Wilmots and Dougie Freedman - click on the odds below to place your bets!
Zenga took charge of the club in the summer of 2016, shortly after the takeover from the Chinese consortium. Wolves had been managed by Kenny Jackett but the new owners decided to sack him after three seasons at the helm, before appointing Zenga a day later.
In his first season in charge Jackett led Wolves to the League One title (2013/14), but agonisingly missed out on the chance of a second successive promotion the following season after finishing just outside of the Championship play-offs on the final day. Meanwhile, they ended an inconsistent 2015/16 campaign in 14th.
It is fair to say that Wolves have had a yo-yo few seasons of late. The Midlands club were relegated from the Premier League in 2012 after finishing rock-bottom of the table. It got worse the following campaign after they suffered the dreaded drop for the second season in a row. However, they managed to bounce back by winning the League One title in 2013/14.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Wolverhampton Wanderers collect wins versus Brentford and Newcastle United while suffering adverse results at Leeds United, Brighton and Hove Albion, Norwich City, Wigan Athletic, Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town. Draws against Aston Villa and Burton Albion has seen them show mid-table form at best.
