Wolves hero Edwards: The board will go foreign; these are my top 2 choices

Former Wolves midfielder Dave Edwards has put forward his two candidates for the vacant manager's job.

Wolves are seeking a new manager after the dismissal of Bruno Lage.

Edwards wrote for the Express & Star: "With the squad of players, the facilities and the backing from Fosun, the vacant Wolves managerial role is a massive opportunity for a new coach to make their mark.

"The World Cup is just around the corner, and the games before the tournament will allow the new boss to assess what they have, before spending time in November and December reflecting and planning for January.

"I would go for Julen Lopetegui. I know he is still in a job at the moment but I think he would be a real coup for Wolves.

"They are not going to go for a Sean Dyche or a Chris Wilder – that will not happen.

"If you look down the list, you know it is going to be someone with Jorge Mendes connections. Ruben Amorim has been linked – he has had success already at Sporting with the league title and domestic trophies, which is exciting.

"What a project that would be for him to take on.

"I would be happy with either, and it would be exciting times for Wolves fans."
