Wolves Name O'Neil As New Manager After Lopetegui's Exit

Wolves Name O'Neil As New Manager After Lopetegui's Exit

Wolves have named former Bournemouth boss Gary O'Neil as the new manager of the club, replacing Julen Lopetegui on a three-year deal.

Lopetegui left the club on Tuesday, just three days before the 2023-24 Premier League season begins, following a nine-month spell at Molineux.

It is understood that the former Real Madrid and Spain manager decided to part ways with Wolves because of the club's lack of spending during this summer's window.

Wolves sporting director Matt Hobbs said: "We're delighted to welcome Gary to the club. 

"He's a highly motivated young coach with strong principles and very well thought of by everyone he has worked with, and we're excited to see what we can achieve together at Wolves.

"Our players have shown their quality during pre-season, and I believe Gary and his team will continue to coach and improve them and will have success working with this group.

"Everyone at Wolves is looking forward to welcoming Gary, offering him their full support and working collaboratively to help the club to keep pushing forward together."

O'Neil led Bournemouth to a 15th-place finish last season but was sacked on June 19.

The 40-year-old becomes Wolves' fourth manager in just over two years.

He will be in the dugout for his first assignment on Monday when Wolves face Manchester United at Old Trafford.
