Following the exit of Nuno Espirito Santo, after his four-year reign as Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach came to an end, the club has signed former Benfica manager, Bruno Miguel Silva do Nascimento, aka Bruno Lage.
Lage, who has been out of work since leaving Benfica last summer was the club’s number one choice following the surprise departure of Nuno Espirito Santo from Molineux at the end of Premier League season last month.
Lage said: “I’m very happy. It’s a big opportunity. I’m very happy because I’ve returned to this country, and to be the manager of a big team.
“I want to create a good dynamic with all the departments of the club. I have tried to link all together to start to build-up the new cycle.
“It’s a good opportunity to understand what Nuno [Espirito Santo] did in these four years and my ambition is to continue and to improve what he did.”
Lage has enjoyed a successful spell at Benfica, playing 48 games, won 38, lost 5, drew 5, scored 131 goals, conceded 39 goals, and 79% winning rate.
