Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed the appointment of Bruno Lage as their new coach.
The 45-year-old has signed a three-year contract with the club to replace Nuno Espirito Santo.
According to the Athletic, Location was recommended to the Premier League club by Agent Jorge Mendes, who is closely associated with the Molineux team.
Wolves have been linked to Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard, but they have chosen to appoint the Portuguese trainer.
Lage led Benfica to the league title in the 2018/19 season and he will be keen to achieve success at the Premier League club.
He has shown that it is his ambition to build on what Nuno has done so far at Molineux.
Nuno established Wolves in the top division and location is expected to lead the club to the European qualifying spots.
Lage is an ambitious coach with progressive ideas and will be looking to bring high intensity attacking football to Molineux for the next season.
He will also take over the youth development of the club and the fans will certainly look forward to the next season under his leadership.
This is how some Wolves fans reacted to Lage’s appointment.
Welcome Bruno. Good luck! Hopefully a good refreshment of the squad, fix the defense, bring me back and play more attractive football and a feeling of optimism will return

Crikey, what a gamble (and certainly one that we would not have played without our sporting director Jorge) – but welcome to the club, Bruno !!
