Peter Crouch and Robbie Savage suggest Brendan Rodgers for Wolves

BT Sport pundits Robbie Savage and Peter Crouch yesterday suggested Wolves should be looking at Brendan Rodgers to succeed Bruno Lage.

Ruben Neves’ penalty was the difference between the two teams.

And Jose Sa also saved a penalty from Brennan Johnson.

It is a massive three points for Wolves, considering the team is still under interim management from Steve Davis and James Collins.

Wolves’ search for a new head coach continues, and prior to the game with Forest, Savage and Crouch briefly mentioned Rodgers as a potential option.

They were covering the Foxes’ game with Crystal Palace earlier in the day.

Following that 0-0 draw, there was some talk about Rodgers’ future. He is a man under big pressure right now, with Leicester currently 19th in the table.

But Savage believes he is still a top coach and suggested Wolves should be looking at him if he was to get the sack.

He said: “I think if Leicester were to get rid of him, and a Premier League job came up, possibly not a top four, five or six club now, but anybody else… Wolves for instance. Just say, if Rodgers wasn’t the Leicester manager, would Wolves (go for him)?

Crouch then responded: “They’d take him in a heartbeat.”

To which Savage replied: “I think they would.”

Brendan Rodgers would be a great appointment, but Wolves have no time to waste

Rodgers would be a great appointment by Wolves.

He has done a great job at the King Power Stadium prior to this season. He’s struggling at the moment due to a lack of fresh impetus in his squad, and he may just naturally be coming to the end of his cycle with the club.

He’s a good manager, and would be a solid appointment by Wolves.

But Wolves have been without a head coach for two weeks now.

There is no time to lose. The club need to be appointing someone this week, and cannot wait around for Rodgers to leave Leicester, if there was even any interest in him.
