A report by the Express and Star has detailed Wolves plans for their first pre-season under Bruno Lage.

Lage’s planning has already started ahead of his maiden campaign in English football.

He wants his players back at Compton for Monday 5 July to kick off their pre-season training.

Some players may be back later if they go deep into the Euros, but most senior stars are expected back by then.

There is only one pre-season friendly in place so far, an away game at Crewe on Saturday 17 July.

An overseas training camp could form part of pre-season as it has in previous years.

But of course the pandemic will play a part in that, will all the travel restrictions it brings.


It is also reported that the new home kit is expected to be launched before that Crewe game.

It’s expected out in the middle of July, after Castore took over from Adidas as the kit supplier.

Pre-season will be vital for Lage as he seeks to impose his philosophy on a squad so used to working under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Lage will likely look to implement a more attacking mentality and is expected to switch to a 4-4-2.

That means a lot of hard work on the training ground will be needed, whether or not Wolves get away overseas to train or not.
