Club statement over sacking of Solbakken, Assistant Manager & First Team coach

Wolverhampton Wanderers has released the following statement about Ståle Solbakken's sacking.

Wolves have announced that Ståle Solbakken has left the Club with immediate effect. The Club have also terminated the contracts of Johan Lange, Assistant Manager and Patrick Weiser, First Team Coach.

Wolves are currently 18th in the npower Championship and have won three out of the last 16 league games after a hugely disappointing run of performances and results, culminating in Saturday’s FA Cup third round defeat to Luton Town.

Kevin Thelwell, Head of Football Development & Recruitment, will take charge of first team training until a new manager is appointed, assisted by Development Coach, Steve Weaver.

The Club would like to offer their thanks and best wishes to Ståle, Johan and Patrick.

Wolves will be making no further comment to the media at this current time.
