Wolves want Peter Bosz as new manager

Wolverhampton Wanderers have added another name to their ever-growing manager shortlist…

What’s the latest?

According to John Percy, writing for The Telegraph, former Borussia Dortmund and Ajax manager Peter Bosz has jumped up as an outstanding candidate for the Molineux hot seat.

The Dutchman has reportedly already been interviewed for the job after talks with the club.

With other names such as Michael Beale and Nuno Espirito Santo being touted still, the search goes on to find a successor to Bruno Lage, who was sacked nearly two weeks ago now.

He will bring good football

The 58-year-old is probably best known for taking a youthful Ajax side to the Europa League final during the 2016/17 campaign but has since earned pedigree all across Europe.

Unsuccessful stints at Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and most recently Olympique Lyon suggest he might not be the best fit, but he has been known to play a brand of football that could really suit the players already at the Old Gold.

Under the previous two regimes, a rigid defensive structure was the focal point of a game plan that did not inspire the fanbase.

However, Bosz’s self-proclaimed “attractive football”, whilst it may offer more risks, will at least be a fresh perspective for supporters.

His further comments offer more safety for those who might expect a reckless strategy: “You need good organisation on the field. When I talk about attacking football, the most important thing is actually the way we defend. Without a good defence, you can’t play offensively. You have to put in place an organisation that is rigorous…”

Having employed an adaptable 4-4-3 throughout his career, he will be teaching to a group of players already informed on this formation.

Also, with highly technical but hard-working players such as Matheus Nunes, Ruben Neves, Daniel Podence and more, his Gegenpressing style of play might just take to them really well.

It is clear that Wolves have had the talent to play a vast expansive game before, but Lage and Nuno before him would both always prioritise the results first.

One report on his philosophy states “The mentality of winning 3-2 rather than 1-0 was apparent.”

It may not be the smartest or safest appointment, but fans will not be bored with his style of play and the players he will have at his disposal.
