Wolves: Peter Bosz “in the running” to replace Bruno Lage

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly considering an approach for former Lyon boss Peter Bosz, with the managerial vacancy at Molineux still yet to be filled.

What’s the word?

According to the Telegraph, the 58-year-old has ‘impressed’ those at the Midlands outfit after being interviewed as a possible candidate to replace Bruno Lage in the dugout, with the latter man having been sacked just over two weeks ago.

Journalist Dean Jones – speaking to GIVEMESPORT – has now provided an update regarding the Old Gold’s interest in the Dutchman, stating: “Peter Bosz is now in the running.

“I think he might make more sense than Beale, given his standing in the game and his reputation across Europe. That’s an interesting one to keep an eye on.”

The Premier League outfit are still seeking a new head coach having seen an approach for Julen Lopetegui fall through, with Queen’s Park Rangers manager Michael Beale, as well as former boss Nuno Espirito Santo, believed to be just two of the names being considered.

Not good enough

As Jones alluded to, the one-time Ajax boss has previously impressed in his managerial career to date, notably winning the manager of the year award in Holland back in 2017 after memorably guiding the Eredivisie outfit to the Europa League final.

The one-time Bayer Leverkusen boss has caught the eye with his Johan Cruyff-inspired, attack-minded philosophy – as per the Telegraph – although there will no doubt be significant doubts over his suitability, particularly following his recent disappointing spell in France.

The Apeldoorn-born coach was only recently sacked by the Ligue 1 outfit after an underwhelming start to the new campaign, having also only finished eighth last season, with journalist Julien Laurens having notably stated prior to his dismissal that he was simply “not good enough”.

Bosz was notably the subject of fan fury after seeing his side fail to beat West Ham United in the Europa League knockout stages last season, having also reportedly been criticised by Lyon skipper Alexandre Lacazette following his final game in charge against Toulouse.

At what football club's academy did former Wolves captain Conor Coady graduate from?

Turning to a manager who is currently coming off the back of such a tumultuous spell is far from ideal for those at Molineux, particularly when considering that the former Netherlands international also previously lasted just a matter of months at Borussia Dortmund back in 2017, before facing the axe.

The managerial target – who was also sacked last year by Leverkusen – may well have a strong reputation, although his recent woes should seemingly be cause for concern.
