Connor speaks on future plans
Terry Connor has admitted that if he fails to keep Wolves in the Premier League it will leave a permanent stain on his CV.
The interim boss took on his first managerial role following the sacking of Mick McCarthy but has yet to taste victory in the nine matches he has been in charge of, seven of which have ended in defeat.
As a result Wolves are rooted to the foot of the Premier League and could be relegated by the end of the weekend, with Manchester City set to visit Molineux on Sunday.
Having worked at the club for 13 years Connor has become somewhat synonymous with Wolves, but understands his failure to keep them up could result in him getting the sack.
The former Leeds and Brighton striker admits he fears for what the future holds if Wolves are relegated but hopes incidents like Fabrice Muamba's heart attack put into perspective what going down means.
"I won't be slightly tarnished by it, I will be tarnished by it (if Wolves go down)," he said.
"That's not a problem. I worked under Mick (McCarthy) for a number of years so I will be accepting whatever responsibility I have to take for the season.
"The last 13 games have been my responsibility."
When asked about the prospect of being relegated, Connor added: "It's not the end of the world. There would be a lot of hurt though.
"Things have happened this season in football, such as what happened to Bolton at Tottenham, and to Gary Speed, so football can sometimes be taken out of context."
