Report: Corinthians eye former Wolves manager Bruno Lage

Brazilian club Corinthians are reportedly considering a move for former Wolves manager Bruno Lage.

The 46-year-old has been out of work since getting the sack at Molineux at the start of October.

Lage and his coaching staff were fired the day after Wolves lost 2-0 to West Ham United in the Premier League.

He had overseen just one league victory, and one win against Preston North End in the Carabao Cup.

Following his sacking, there were reports about how Lage had lost the dressing room weeks prior.

Some had become disillusioned with life under him, and there were reports that some players had disengaged and didn’t particularly like his team meetings, which could be lengthy and counterproductive.

Results were not good, despite heavy backing from the board on transfers in the summer.

And so, the board decided to make a chance, with Julen Lopetegui having only just succeeded him.

But Lage is now being linked with another job, with Corinthians supposedly interested in his services.

The club are without a manager since Vitor Pereira left the club just days ago.

Corinthians president Duílio Monteiro Alves, has contacted Lage and also the legendary former Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho, according to journalist Wilson Pimentel (via Torcedores).

Lage is apparently curious about the project. So far, there has been no official offer put to him.

But he has apparently mentioned a few things he would like, including who to bring in with him in terms of a coaching team, and also to have a say on transfers.

Corinthians would be a good next move for former Wolves manager Bruno Lage

It didn’t work out for Lage at Wolves in the end.

There were moments where it looked as though Wanderers could do good things under his stewardship.

But ultimately, he lost the players and the brand of football wasn’t exciting or effective.

Corinthians could be a good next gig for him.

It would be a place for him to rebuild his reputation somewhat, and obviously he’d be working in a Portuguese-speaking environment.

Lage has the potential to be a good manager. He’ll have learnt a great deal during his time at Wolves and perhaps a spell with Corinthians would be good for him.
