Pressure on from the off warns Connor
Interim boss Terry Connor believes Stale Solbakken will be expected to get Wolves back into the Premier League as soon as possible.
Solbakken was yesterday named as Connor's permanent successor after the former Leeds and Brighton striker failed to keep the club in the top-flight. Mick McCarthy's former assistant will return to his old role at Molineux to work alongside the Norwegian after Sunday's final game of the season against Wigan when he will be aiming to secure his first win in 13 attempts. Connor knows the pressure will be on the former FC Copenhagen and Cologne boss right from the off, particularly as a relative unknown to English game, but the 49-year-old is urging the Wolves fans to give the new man time to prove his worth. He said: "Whoever was in charge, there would be big pressure to get back (to the Premier League). We'll be no doubt one of the favourites to return so there'll always be pressure on. "Wolves is a big club with a lot of tradition. We want to play in the Premier League. "Whoever took over would have found themselves under pressure to deliver Premier League football. "Stale will want to win some games and get us out of the Championship as soon as possible. "He'll come into a club that's ready to turn their fortunes around. I think there's a good platform here to work from." Connor himself has no problem with the club's decision and will happily step out of the limelight again to assume a position within Wolves' backroom team, as he has done for the last 13 years. He added: "I'm just a man who works for Wolves. I was asked to work for 13 games as manager and, on Sunday, I will complete that. "I'll meet Stale on Monday and I'll offer every assistance I can from that day on going forwards."
