Wolves to keep Steve Davis as interim manager until 2023

Wolves have confirmed Steve Davis will remain as caretaker head coach until the end of the year.

Steve Davis was appointed as caretaker head coach after Bruno Lage was sacked on October 2. Sevilla head coach Julen Lopetegui was their first choice to replace Lage but he rejected their offer for family reasons.

Reports in the last 48 hours suggested that Wolves want to appoint Queens Park Rangers' Michael Beale as their new manager but former Steven Gerrard assistant at Aston Villa also reportedly turned down Wolves' approach.

In a statement on the club's official website, chairman Jeff Shi:

"In the short time Steve and his team have been in interim charge of the first team, we have already seen improvements to the group, with the players responding well to their methods and the changes they have started to implement.

"Steve understands the culture and standards set at this club, and we want to give him and his team clarity on their positions and allow them the best possible opportunity for success.

"While there are no outstanding candidates to appoint on a permanent basis to the head coach position, we have complete faith in their ability and leadership to continue their roles into the World Cup break and new year.

"We have no plans to rush our search for a new permanent head coach and will not compromise in any way our approach to appointing the person we believe to be the perfect fit for our club, our squad and the role of head coach at Wolves."


have won one game and lost two games since Lage's sacking and they are in 18th place with just 9 points after 11 matches.
