  • Lage sacked eight games into season
  • Wolves won one game so far
  • Sit third-bottom of the Premier League

WHAT HAPPENED? The Portuguese coach has been relieved of his duties a day after his side's 2-0 loss against West Ham, which leaves them with just six points from their first eight matches of the Premier League season. Indeed, Wolves had only won one of their last 15 top-flight matches under Lage, who has paid the ultimate price for their inconsistency.

WHAT HAVE THEY SAID? An official statement posted on the club's social media channels reads: ''Wolves have parted company with head coach Bruno Lage. We would like to thank Bruno and his coaching team for their efforts during their time at the club and wish them the very best for the future.''

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Lage was hired in June 2021 to replace Nuno Espirito Santo at the helm of the Molineux club. He guided Wolves to a 10th place finish in the Premier League in his first season in charge, despite his side not winning any of their last seven matches.

AND WHAT'S MORE: The bad run at the end of last term carried on to this one, with Wolves winning just one match so far to leave them third-bottom of the table.
