Wolves Sack Stale Solbakkenby Richard Smith / 05 January 2013, 22:40Tweet
Wolverhampton Wanderers have sacked manager, Stale Solbakken, following the the side's 1-0 FA Cup 3rd Round defeat at the hands of Conference side, Luton Town.
Wolves appointed Solbakken in July last year after they were relegated from the Premier League, replacing Terry Connor, who had taken over from Mick McCarthy in February and the news of the Norwegian's departure now means that the Midlands club will be seeking their fourth manager in under 12 months!
Stale Solbakken came to Molineux with a big reputation from his time in charge of FC Copenhagen, where he guided the Danish side to three national titles and Champions League campaigns before moving on to manager FC Koln in the Bundesliga.
His record during his short spell at Wolves read managed 30 games, won 10, lost 15 and drew five. However, it was the five straight losses, culminating in the defeat at Kenilworth Road that saw the Steve Morgan call time on Solbakken's tenure.
The search will now begin for the next Wolves manager and it is Dean Saunders, Sean O'Driscoll, Alan Curbishley and Roberto Di Matteo who are the early front runners for the post.
