Danny Murphy thinks Wolves should move for Sean Dyche

Danny Murphy believes Wolves should be looking at Sean Dyche to replace Bruno Lage.

Wolves are now scrambling for a new manager, after Julen Lopetegui turned down the opportunity.

The Spaniard is not in a position to take the job at this time, as his father is currently ill.

He has just left Sevilla, and wants to spend time with his family.

Following that news last night, there have been a lot of links today to names that have already been mentioned shortly after Lage’s sacking.

The likes of Pedro Martins, Bo Svensson and Ange Postecoglu are all being talked about as potential options.

But Murphy believes Wanderers ought to be looking at Dyche, who is currently a free agent after leaving Burnley earlier this year.

He said on talkSPORT this morning: “I think there’s an obvious candidate, really obvious, in Sean Dyche. I think he knows how to stay in the league.

“With better players, I think he can get them playing good football. I think he’d be a brilliant fit.”

Dyche was sacked back in April after 10 years at the helm at Turf Moor.

He led Burnley to two promotions to the Premier League, and most recently kept the club in the top-flight from 2015 to 2022.

He was regularly praised for the job he did over the years, with Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville saying at the time of his sacking (via Sky Sports): “Well done to Sean Dyche for doing one of the great managerial jobs in PL history. He had a bantamweight budget and yet punched hard against the heavyweights for years.”

Sean Dyche appointment by Wolves wouldn’t please everyone, but he undoubtedly did a good job with Burnley

Dyche is an interesting shout.

While it does feeling a tad underwhelming, there is no denying the success he had with Burnley.

He turned them into a competitive Premier League side for a number of years, and did that with very limited resources.

Dyche staved off the threat of relegation for several seasons, and Wolves might now need someone to come in and do that given the current predicament.

He is surely worth at least considering.
