Steve Bull has told Football FanCast that Bruno Lage will only succeed as Wolverhampton Wanderers’ head coach if he is given money to improve the squad this summer.
Former Benfica chief Lage was named as Nuno Espirito Santo’s successor last month.
Lage, 45, has moved quickly to bolster his squad, with 20-year-old defender Yerson Mosquera joining from Colombian outfit Atletico Nacional and exciting winger Francisco Trincão joining on a season-long loan – including an option to make the move permanent – from Barcelona.
However, club legend Bull insists further reinforcements are needed if Lage wants to thrive at Molineux.
Bull also admits he was unaware of the Portuguese Lage before he was being touted as a potential candidate for the top job at Wolves.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Bull said: “I knew absolutely nothing about him. It’s the same as when Nuno came in. Who knew what Nuno was about? Nobody knew.
“Foreign managers come over and they want to stamp their mark on the Premier League. You’ve got to give him a chance but it all boils down to what they give him to spend.”
