Bruno Lage should have been sacked by Wolves two weeks ago according to talkSPORT’s Darren Ambrose.
The 46-year-old was relieved of his duties yesterday following the 2-0 defeat to West Ham United on Saturday night.
The latest loss resulted in Wolves slipping into the relegation zone.
It has been an awful start to the 2022/23 season.
Just one win and three goals scored is simply not good enough, and the board have acted decisively following a strong reaction from supporters.
But Ambrose believes that Wanderers officials should actually have made the decision a bit sooner.
He said this morning: “If we are led to believe that he had one game to save his job, it’s always going to be that.
“If you beat West Ham, it’s going to be, again, you’ve got one game. If you’re already thinking that, his time’s up, basically. Unless you’re going to go on a 10-game unbeaten run.
“But even after that you’re already thinking of getting rid of him. I just think the timing is strange, it should have happened two weeks ago.”
Information has been coming out today that would suggest Wolves sacking Lage sooner would have been the right call.
It has been claimed by a Wolves source, via The Athletic, that Lage actually lost the dressing room at the end of last season.
Wolves might have been better sacking Bruno Lage before the international break
Given what we are learning today about the final weeks of Lage’s tenure, it would perhaps have been better for Wolves to sack Lage a couple of weeks ago, as Ambrose suggests.
Supposedly all hasn’t been well in the dressing room for a while, and that is a worry.
Removing Lage from his position before the last international break would have potentially meant a new man coming in and having good time to work on things in training and getting to know the players.
That process will now take place with the season back underway, and it is going to take time for the players to adapt.
