Wolverhampton Wanderers are being linked with many managerial names to replace Nuno Espirito Santo at the moment.

The likes of Bruno Lage, Paulo Fonseca and Sergio Conceicao have all been mentioned so far, with the former seemingly the most likely appointment at the time of writing.

Wolves will reportedly take their time with it, as it’s a huge decision for Fosun to make.

It’ll be important for club officials to absolutely scour the footballing world to get the right appointment.

He’s not (yet) been linked, but one man who probably ought to be looked into by Wolves, is Christophe Galtier.

The 54-year-old has just left Lille after delivering the Ligue 1 title after a brilliant fight with Paris Saint-Germain.

He did a sterling job there, first taking over in December 2017 and keeping them up by a point in his first season.

 

He then guided Lille to second in 2018/19, getting them back into the Champions League after seven years away.

In 2019/20 – which was cut short due to the pandemic – he again oversaw a top four finish.

Last weekend’s stunning title win saw him named Ligue 1 Manager of the Year for the third time in his managerial career.

During the course of 2020/21, Galtier came in for high praise from pundits for developing players like Renato Sanches, who has in recent times been linked with a move to Wolves.

The Guardian reported that Galtier ‘masterfully found a solution to every problem’ this season, and made his side largely impenetrable.

Seemingly, Wolves could do a lot worse than to try and make him the next head coach at Molineux given his wonderful achievements over the past few years.

There is talk (Fabrizio Romano) that he might be Nice-bound and if that is true, then Wolves would have to launch a hijack operation – but he is definitely someone worth pursuing.
