Journalist says Scott Sellars has been helping Wolves on matchdays

Scott Sellars has apparently been lending a hand for Wolves on matchdays.

That is according to Express & Star journalist Liam Keen, who was speaking this week on the publication’s latest podcast about the current setup at Molineux.

Following the decision to sack Bruno Lage, it has all been a little chaotic in terms of the coaching makeup.

Steve Davis is the main man at the moment, and now will be until 2023 while Wolves continue to look for a permanent head coach to succeed Lage.

He is being assisted by James Collins and Tony Roberts.

And Keen has reported this week that Sellars – the club’s technical director – has also had an active role on matchdays.

He stated that Sellars has had communication with the bench from his position in the stands and has even helped to make in-game decisions.

He ‘certainly’ now has a say, Keen says, something he didn’t have when Lage was still in place.

Keen then took to Twitter yesterday to say: “Sellars is currently helping on matchdays from the stands and has communication with the bench, to offer another pair of eyes in the interim. Some of the vitriol is unnecessary.”

There is potential for this arrangement to prompt real struggle for Wolves

This is a very interesting claim from Keen regarding Sellars and his influence at Wolves.

The fact he is having a say on things on a matchday is quite a surprise, and something that will not go down well with many Wanderers supporters.

And that’s understandable.

He is the technical director. And really ought to focus on matters off the pitch.

There is potential here for chaos. The phrase ‘too many cooks’ springs to mind.

Surely, Davis needs sole control and to make the final decisions, having consulted with Collins and Roberts.
