Former Wolverhampton Wanderers man Steve Bull has been speaking to The Transfer Tavern about Zinedine Zidane potentially taking over from Nuno Espirito Santo at Molineux.

To kick off this quiz on Romain Saiss, what squad number does the defensive midfielder currently wear for the Old Gold?

Zidane has recently left Real Madrid, so he is available, and Bull would like to see the three-time Champions League-winning manager at Wolves to build on the foundations left by Nuno.

Nuno left the Old Gold at the end of the season and Bruno Lage has been heavily linked with taking the job, but Bull wants to see some ambition from the club to try and get the 48-year-old.

He said: “Zinedine Zidane, he could do a job all day long. He was my favourite player when I was growing up, he’s absolutely top drawer, and he’s showed it as a manager at Real Madrid.

“I think there’s going to be names bandied about left, right and centre now.”

Do you think that Zidane would take the Wolves job?

TIF Thoughts on Zidane at Wolves…

There is no question that Zidane’s trophy record as a manager speaks for itself, so if the Old Gold wanted to bring some silverware to Molineux, then he could be the man to do it.

However, with the Inter job free, perhaps Wolves wouldn’t be that high up his list of options.

Of course, it remains to be seen, but we can’t see Zidane replacing Nuno at Molineux as much as it would be a staggering appointment.
