It'll be no surprise to find out that the majority of the names listed on Wolves' shortlist are Portuguese, given that most of the club's players are, as was their now ex-manager, Nuno Espirito Santo.
This brings into the fray Bruno Lage, who has experience at Portgual's highest level with Benfica, and experience in England as assistants at both Swansea City and Sheffield Wednesday. Lage did depart Benfica last year after matching Benfica's worst-ever series of results with just two wins in 13 matches in the 2000/01 season, and he remains without a job.
However, with a 67% win rate with the Portuguese giants and a Primera Liga and a Primeira Liga's Best Coach award to match, the favourite for the Wolves job has built up even more of a portfolio than his potential predecessor, as Santo never won in his homeland as a manager.
Lage would clearly be a top fit for the Midlands outfit, given his nationality, experience in both Portugal and England and how he actually boasts more on his resume than Santo. Lage is now priced at 10/11 in the next Wolves manager odds list.
