Steve Davis reacts after many Wolves fans chanted against Scott Sellars today

Wolves interim manager Steve Davis has given his reaction to many fans chanted against Scott Sellars at Molineux today.

Wanderers turned in one of their worst performances of the season in 4-0 defeat to Leicester City.

Barring a good start and a short rally early in the second-half, Wolves produced another abject display and again failed to find the back of the net.

The defending on some of the goals was also very poor.

There was no fight from Wolves, who seem set to participate in a relegation battle this season.

During the game, chants could be heard around Molineux against the club’s technical director Scott Sellars.

It has been reported this week that he has an active role now for Wolves on a matchday. He supposedly communicates with the bench during games and has a say on in-game decisions.

Between this and some awful recruitment decisions in recent times, many supporters have really turned against the 56-year-old. Executive chairman Jeff Shi is also a deeply unpopular figure at the moment.

After the game, the chanting against Sellars was put to Davis, who admitted he was surprised by what he heard.

He has seemingly denied that he has any actual involvement when it comes to the team.

He said (as quoted by journalist Liam Keen): “It’s the first time I’ve heard anything like that in this stadium. I was surprised. I pick the team and decide how we play.

“He sits watching the game and talks with Mat Pearson about the game.”

Wolves should be continuing manager search and should not be leaving Steve Davis in interim charge

Wolves are taking a massive risk proceeding with Davis as interim manager.

It’s three defeats and one win under his guidance so far, and just one goal scored.

Jeff Shi said earlier this week that there were no outstanding candidates for the job.

But to leave it in Davis’ hands is a huge risk.
