Who is the Favourite to Be Next Wolves Manager?

The betting sites have slashed the odds on Julen Lopetegui in their Premier League Sack Race market, with the Spaniard set to leave Molineux after a summer of hardly any spending.

It means that Gary O'Neil could come in to replace him, 12 months after the same thing happened at Bournemouth. The Englishman did a brilliant job with the Cherries and will now look to steer Wanderers to a decent finish in the Premier League.

The best football betting sites are anticipating Wolves and Lopetegui parting company sooner rather than later, with O'Neil in pole position to land the role.

O'Neil Set to Take Charge at Molineux

Many were shocked to see Gary O'Neil sacked as manager of AFC Bournemouth at the end of the 2022/23 season. After all, the 40-year-old was hugely instrumental in keeping the Cherries afloat in the Premier League.

Scott Parker left the club just a few games into the season, and his replacement was able to steady the ship and steer Bournemouth to safety despite the team being big favourites to go down with most new betting sites.

It will be interesting to see whether O'Neil can perform successfully at Molineux. It's a similar situation in that there isn't big money to spend, although O'Neil has already demonstrated his ability to build a team who can successfully evade relegation.

Nuno Espirito Santo Set for Wolves Return?

We've seen Premier League managers return to clubs for a second spell and it appears that Nuno Espirito Santo is now in the reckoning to return to a club that he led to promotion, before steering Wolves to lofty finishes in the Premier League.

Nuno was in charge at Molineux between 2017-2021, with the Portuguese then leaving the club, and it wasn't long before he was given the chance to manage Tottenham Hotspur. However, that was an ill-fated spell and the 48-year-old is now in charge of Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad Club, although he could be open to a Wolves return.

If Nuno did return, it would be warmly received by the supporters who have seen their team suffer a drab start to the season. Although, any manager will inherit a squad who certainly look as though they need strengthening in order to stay alive in the Premier League.

Villas-Boas Another Portuguese Coach in the Wolves Betting

Andre Villas-Boas is no stranger to managing in the English Premier League. He had short spells in charge of both Chelsea and Tottenham in the early 2010s, having arrived in England with a glittering reputation following an eye-catching spell with Porto.

Since then, the 44-year-old has had spells with Zenit Saint Petersburg, Shanghai and Marseille, with AVB having steered the French club to second place in the 2019-20 season. However, there was a high profile fall-out between himself and the French club regarding the overall transfer policy, which led to his exit.

Villas-Boas might well be interested in the vacant role at Wolves, although he would want assurances that the club are able to strengthen in January considering a scrap against relegation looks to be on the cards right now.

Carlos Carvalhal Could Be On the Wolves Shortlist

Carlos Carvalhal's list of clubs managed is as long as your proverbial arm and that indicates that he could be willing to make the switch to Wolverhampton Wanderers if given the opportunity. The 56-year-old has enjoyed stints at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City during his long career in the dug out, with the Portuguese most recently taking charge at Al Wahda in the United Arab Emirates.

That episode lasted just a matter of games, although Carvalhal was previously in charge at Braga between 2020-22 and could well be the man to come to Wolves' aid, with the manager having come close to steering Sheffield Wednesday into the Premier League and his time with Swansea started well before the Welsh club nosedived down the Premier League standings.

Could Sérgio Conceição Make Switch from Porto?

Sérgio Conceição is a highly-respected manager who has achieved great things at FC Porto, and it’s hard to get away from the fact that Wolverhampton Wanderers will leverage that Portuguese connection to potentially secure someone of that nationality to take charge of a squad with so many players from that country.

Conceição has experienced success domestically and in the Champions League, especially when achieving a knockout win over Juventus while in charge of Porto before being caught short against Manchester City two seasons ago. The manager has also steered the Portuguese club to three Primeira Liga titles and the 46-year-old was previously in charge at French club Nantes.

This would be a popular appointment with the Wolves fans considering that this manager’s track record is impressive and it might be that Sérgio Conceição has taken Porto as far as he can, with this being an opportunity to make his mark in the English Premier League.
