Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Paul Lambert could be sacked at the end of the season, according to Sunday’s print edition of The Sun.
Wolves are currently in 20th place in the Championship table after a run of only one win from eight games. The club are only one point away from the relegation positions with 11 games of the season left to go.
Current boss Paul Lambert took over back in November 2016 when the club were in 19th place. Lambert has won eight of his 23 games in charge but his team have struggled to put together a consistent run of form in the league. This has brought about relegation worries and Lambert may not keep his job into next season.
Wolves shocked everyone back in January when they completed the permanent signing of Helder Costa from Benfica. The winger had been on a season-loan at the West Midlands club but after nine goals in 28 games had already done enough to prove he was worth Benfica’s asking price.
This price turned out to be £13 million, breaking Wolves’ record transfer fee. However with one goal in his last eight games, Costa has failed to recapture his early season goal-scoring form that led Wolves to spend so much money on him.
It is understood that Wolves’ owners are now looking for a foreign coach who has Championship experience and could replace Lambert at the end of the season.
Wolves secured a vital win over bottom-of-the-table Rotherham United on Saturday as they look to avoid the drop. The club also have key games against fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and Blackburn Rovers coming up.
