The announcement of Bruno Lage’s coaching staff at Wolves has been delayed, as per the Express & Star.

They claim that the club were initially expecting to come this week, after Lage’s appointment was confirmed last week.

But there has been a delay getting work permits through which means the timeframe has changed.

It could well be another week or two before the coaching team is announced now.

That coaching team is expected to include Lage’s younger brother Luis Nascimento.

Wolves are apparently relaxed about the situation, which indicates there is no major problem at all.

It would be good if Lage could kick on and start work in England with his coaching team already.


But they’re no doubt already in remote contact and of course the players are all away from the club right now anyway.

Pre-season key for Lage

As long as the coaching team is in place for pre-season, there’s no issue for Lage.

But it will be a big pre-season and work on the training ground will be vitally important.

That’s because he’ll be looking to tweak the approach used by Nuno, presumably making it more attacking and switching from a back three to 4-4-2.

The only way to make that progress is with good, hard work on the training ground and the coaches around him are critical to that.
