Wolves: Fosun not worried by dire start to the Premier League season

|

Journalist Dean Jones has said that the Wolves hierarchy are aware of the club’s worrying performances, but are only focused on the future.

The Old Gold have endured a torrid opening period of the season and find themselves bottom of the pile ahead of the World Cup break.

A 2-0 defeat to Arsenal last weekend was the club’s ninth in their first 15 fixtures, leaving them four points adrift of safety.

Bruno Lage was sacked by Fosun having picked up just one win in their opening eight league games, with Steve Davis taking over as interim boss.

Julen Lopetegui has since been appointed, and it has been suggested that the Spaniard will be supported in his efforts to keep the club afloat.

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones has now said that the owners aren’t dwelling on their dismal start to the season.

He said: “I’m told it’s just something they’re putting to one side for the moment. They know how dreadful the season has been so far, but they’re not going to worry about what’s happened, they’re only focused on what’s going to happen next.”

TIF Thoughts on Lopetegui and Wolves…

Will Wolves be relegated?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

The Telegraph’s John Percy has reported that the higher-ups at Molineux are willing to invest in the side this winter – and it will most certainly be needed.

Whether the new manager has his own targets remains to be seen, but the 56-year-old will have the unenviable task of trying to rectify the team’s problems at both ends of the pitch.

The Midlanders had become so resolute under Nuno Espirito Santo, but they have conceded 24 goals this term – with just seven sides shipping more.

Meanwhile, they are averaging close to one goal every two games having scored just eight times.

They will need reinforcements at either end, even with Raul Jimenez on his way back, and we’re unsure whether Lopetegui will have enough time and resources to steer the side to safety.
