Bruno Lage will be confirmed as Wolves’ new manager next week, according to the Express and Star.

They report that he was granted a work permit on Wednesday.

That means it is just the remaining formalities to sort out, but he is all set to succeed Nuno Espirito Santo at Molineux.

And he has already identified the first coach who will join his staff when his arrival is confirmed.

Luis Nascimento is Lage’s younger brother and the 41-year-old is set to join Wolves’ coaching staff.

 

He has been the assistant manager to Carlos Carvahal at Rio Ave.

Lage has also worked with Carvahal at Swansea and Sheffield Wednesday, so there’s a clear crossover of ideas there.

Wolves’ new assistant manager?

The report claims it hasn’t been confirmed whether Nascimento will be Lage’s assistant.

But he will be joining the club, apparently, as the post-Nuno era at Molineux takes shape.

Getting a managerial appointment done before the European Championship is wise and allows Wolves to get their house in order for the summer.
