Wolves next manager latest: Pedro Martins could come back into contention

Pedro Martins could reportedly come back into contention for the Wolves manager’s job.

According to the Mirror, the former Olympiacos boss – who is currently unattached – may be back in the frame for the job, if the club is unable to persuade Julen Lopetegui.


Jeff Shi is currently in Spain holding talks with the Spaniard.

He is the top choice, but he has just come out of a stint with Sevilla and has been spending time with family, including his father who has been unwell lately.

Wolves are wanting to make a quick appointment given the struggles of the team.

Should Lopetegui feel as though the time is not right, then Wolves could switch their attention to Martins.

Martins looked set to take over at Hull City last week.

But he turned the job down in the end.

Sky Sports had reported that there was even a verbal agreement, and that he was expected to be unveiled.

But ultimately the 52-year-old opted against the move, stating conditions were not met (via Hull Daily Mail). This after even being shown around the training ground.

Apparently, Wolves could yet consider moving for Martins themselves.

It was reported after Bruno Lage’s sacking that Martins was under consideration by Wolves officials.

Hopefully Lopetegui agrees to take over at Wolves, as Pedro Martins claim made

Lopetegui feels like a good fit for Wolves.

He achieved a lot with Sevilla and left the Spanish club after getting a very warm reception from the supporters.

He is someone who could not only improve Wolves tactically, but also heal the dressing room.

Hopefully Shi can make a breakthrough.

But there is a possibility that this job has come up at the wrong time for Lopetegui.

And so it is important for other candidates to be considered.

One does wonder if Martins turning the Hull job down has anything to do with the vacancy at Molineux.
