Wolverhampton Wanderers are expected to soon announce their new manager as Bruno Lage.

The 45-year-old received a work permit last week, and it is widely expected he will be named as Nuno Espirito Santo’s successor.

It is thought that there are only a few more things left to sort out – Lage’s contract, and who is backroom staff will be.

Interestingly, it’s been reported that Lage will be joined at Molineux by his younger brother Luis Nascimento.

He’ll take up coaching duties at Molineux, and one Wolves star has already worked with the 41-year-old.

Fabio Silva had a couple of years in the Benfica youth setup before coming through with FC Porto.

He worked with Nascimento there, and has said of the 41-year-old (via Tuga Scout): “In terms of learning, he was the coach that made me grow the most and acquire many of the skills that I have today.

 

“He always believed in me. I talk to him almost every day.”

Silva rise inbound?

These comments from Silva about Nascimento are potentially quite exciting.

The teenager did the best he could in his first season at Molineux, and showed that he does have great potential.

Obviously he is still extremely raw at the moment, and needs time to develop his game and also bulk up a little.

Perhaps the arrival of Nascimento, who he clearly really respects, could kickstart his rise at Molineux.
