Another Premier League club manager is sacked

Just eight games into the 2022/23 Premier League season, a third manager has been sacked in the English top flight.

The latest managerial victim is from the past wolves manager Bruno Lage who was officially kicked off on Sunday after a largely disappointing start to the season.

Prior to Lage’s dismissal, AFC Bournemouth and Chelsea sacked Scott Parker and Thomas Tuchel respectively.

Another uninspiring display in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at West Ham was the last straw for Lage as Wolverhampton slipped into the relegation zone.

Molineux’s men have just six points from eight games this season, and their tally of three goals is the lowest in the Premier League.

Wolves spent £100million on new signings this summer as Lage’s request for reinforcements was granted. However, the Portuguese manager was unable to turn his side’s fortunes around and his 15-month tenure is now over.

Speaking after Wolves’ last loss on Saturday – a game which would prove to be Lage’s last in charge – he said: “We are under pressure.

“We will continue to work. I know the fans support us. We try to do our best for them. We are in a bad moment, we have no goals or victories.

“We have to keep working. I can promise that we will work hard every day to bring good games and wins to the team.

Unfortunately, Lage would no longer have time to continue working as Wolverhampton’s hierarchy are already looking for a new manager who he hopes will turn his waning fortunes around.
