Former Sheffield Wednesday assistant, Bruno Lage, has been tipped as the favourite for the Wolverhampton Wanderers job.

The 45-year-old came to Sheffield alongside his Portuguese compatriot in 2015, spending two and a half seasons there as the Owls twice came close to reaching the Premier League.

Since then, after a spell in Wales, Lage returned to home to work at his former club, Benfica, where he started as manager of their reserve team before being handed the top job as Rui Vitoria’s replacement in 2019.

Lage didn’t last too long, however, and left last year in July after a difficult 2019/20 campaign, and has since seemingly taken a break away from management.

Now though, with news that Nuno Espirito Santo will leave Wolverhampton Wanderers at the end of the season, Lage has been heavily linked with a return to English football in the Black Country.

Several reports have mentioned the former Owls assistant’s name as a replacement for Wolves, and he’s now the bookies’ favourite for the position.
