Wolves Appoint Terry Connorby Mark Cohen / 24 February 2012, 10:57Tweet
Wolverhampton Wanderers have temporarily put an end to their new manager debacle by appointing assistant boss Terry Connor until the end of the season. The club have endured a highly publicised struggle to find a replacement for Mick McCarthy with the likes of Alan Curbishley and Walter Smith turning them down. Connor will now be tasked with saving Wolves from the drop and will be thrust straight into the spotlight on Saturday when his side travel to Newcastle.
Connor has been at Wolves for 13 years and during that time has worked under four different managers: Colin Lee, Dave Jones, Glenn Hoddle and most recently McCarthy. The club have revealed that he has got their full backing but they will continue to search for a permanent replacement with the likes of Steve Bruce and Dave Jones featuring in the Next Wolves Manager Betting Odds.
Wolves chairman Steve Morgan has been blasted by many supporters who believe McCarthy should have been sacked before Christmas instead of with just a few months of the season remaining. With Wolves currently embroiled in a relegation scrap it was always going to be difficult to attract a suitable successor. However, the club must now move forward as they have a crucial run of fixtures ahead of them, starting with a trip to high-flying Newcastle on Saturday!
Is Terry Connor the right man for the job?
