Murray: Wolves job is a massive task

Dean Saunders' successor as manager at Molineux faces "a massive task" to lift the club in readiness for an instant return to the npower Championship, says former Wolves goalkeeper Matt Murray.

The Wolves players have to realise that in every single game they're going to be a massive scalp

In the Championship Wolves are a big scalp, but in League One other clubs will go there desperate to play them and when they go away to these teams, it's going to be a lion's den.

I think they've still got £16million of parachute payments and everything else, then I believe Wolves can get back.

But the appointment, the person who comes in, it's a massive task just to lift the whole place.

– Matt Murray speaking to Sky Sports News.

Wolves sacked Saunders following the club's relegation to League One and are now in the hunt for their fifth permanent manager in less than 15 months.

Owen Coyle, Peterborough's Darren Ferguson and Kenny Jackett, who resigned as Millwall boss, have been installed among the early favourites.


What Twitter says: Wolves sack Dean Saunders


Knew Wolves would pull the trigger on Deano. Needs a feel good factor and he's sounded very low in interviews.


Wolves sacking of Dean Saunders & their relegation to League One is a desperate reflection on the judgement of chairman Steve Morgan.


Looks like Dean Saunders' "Eye of the Tiger" was convincing nobody. Steve Bruce never did get that call back from Wolves. How did that go?
