Wolves turn to Solbakken
Wolves have named Stale Solbakken as their new manager and he will officially introduced to the media at Molineux next Monday.
The 44-year-old former Norwegian international is a free agent after recently leaving a similar post at Cologne, just before their relegation from the Bundesliga was confirmed. His spell in Germany may not have been that successful, having taken on the job in 2011, but he did give fans of FC Copenhagen much more to celebrate as they won the Danish title in five of his six seasons in charge. Solbakken isn't a total stranger to English football either, having played for Wimbledon during a career that earned him 58 caps for his country. His playing days were brought to a premature end in 2001 when he suffered a cardiac arrest during a training session while on Copenhagen's books. He told the club's official website: "I am delighted to be taking up the important challenge to manage Wolves. "It's an exciting opportunity to manage a great club and I can't wait to get started." Solbakken will official start his new job on July 1st, but in the meantime Terry Connor will take charge of Wolves' final game in the Premier League against Wigan on Sunday. Connor was given the chance to make the job his own after succeeding the sacked Mick McCarthy in February, but the team have so far failed to win a single match since he took over. Wolves owner Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey are now hoping Solbakken can reverse their fortunes and take the club back into the top-flight as soon as possible. Moxey said on the appointment: "Following talks with Stale Solbakken I am happy to confirm that he has agreed to become our new manager."
