Dean Saunders appointment: background

Dean Saunders quickly became the preferred candidate for Wolves after they sacked Stale Solbakken on Saturday night (January 5) following a poor run of form, which culminated in an FA Cup third-round defeat to non-league Luton.

  • Saunders is Wolves' fourth boss in less than a year after the departure last February of Mick McCarthy and Terry Connor's brief time with the club.
  • Wolves have achieved just three wins in 16 games and currently sit in 18th place in the npower Championship.
  • A former Liverpool and Aston Villa player, Saunders got the Doncaster job after Sean O'Driscoll was sacked last season.
