Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Paul Lambert is set for a six-figure pay-off when he officially leaves the club, according to Sunday’s print edition of The Sun.
Lambert is set to leave Wolves in the coming days after the club made the decision to put Jorge Mendes, an agent, in charge of the club’s recruitment for this summer. However, Lambert will leave the club with a pay-off believed to be around £1 million – a full year’s pay.
Wolves appointed Lambert as manager back in November 2016 following the sacking of Walter Zenga. The club went on to finish 15th in the Championship after a somewhat disappointing season.
Lambert has lots of experience managing in the Championship and looks like he will be looking for work in the league once again after he leaves Wolves. The Scot has managed at the level with Norwich City and Blackburn Rovers in the past.
Lambert led Norwich City to successive promotions from League One to the Premier League, keeping Norwich safe from relegation before leaving to join Aston Villa. Lambert’s time at Villa was less successful and he was sacked after almost three years in charge.
At Blackburn last season, Lambert won 12 of his 33 games in charge and led the club to Championship safety. However, he activated a clause to leave Blackburn last summer.
After Lambert’s exit is confirmed, Wolves will have to begin their search for their third manager in a year.
