Sellars had previously been Head of Player Development and therefore supporters of the Premier League side are happy that someone who knows the club will continue to oversee the future of their upcoming stars.
The Molineux faithful took the time to congratulate the 53-year-old on his new role with Wolves, welcoming him to the project and praising the club for making what they think is the right appointment to take the academy forward.
The former midfielder initially joined the West Midlands team just under five years ago and before becoming Head of Player Development last summer, was U23s Head Coach.
During his spell with Wolves, the ex-Leeds man has also had a spell as Assistant Head Coach during Rob Edwards’ time as caretaker boss in 2016.
Once a player at Blackburn and Newcastle among others, he has also been a youth coach at Manchester City so his reputation both as a player and as a coach makes this appointment an exciting one for Wanderers followers.
Here’s how they reacted to the news of his appointment.
This is a great move by the club. Scott knows his stuff & the academy is in very good hands. He will guarantee that the young talent at the club continues to progress & improve & that the path to the first team is an achievable & realistic goal. Congratulations Scott. ?????
