Wolves to go Portuguese to replace Nuno; Faria among three names considered

Wolves intend to go Portuguese again to replace departing manager Nuno.

The club announced on Friday that Nuno would leave after Sunday's home game against Manchester United, with his departure described as 'mutual consent' by the club, even though Nuno signed a new deal less than a year ago with a significant increase on his initial £3million annual salary.

Wolves are set to target another Portuguese coach to replace Nuno with former Benfica boss Bruno Lage and ex-Porto chief Vitor Pereira among the contenders for the Molineux role.

Lage, 45, left Benfica last summer and is thought to have turned down a number of opportunities since.

Pereira, meanwhile, is an experienced coach who as well as Porto has managed Olympiakos, Fenerbahce and Shanghai SIPG. Another on the Wolves radar is believed to be Rui Faria, best known as Jose Mourinho's long-time assistant, says the Daily Mail. Faria worked with Mourinho at Manchester United and Chelsea.
