Dean Saunders has been confirmed as the new manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Following Ståle Solbakken’s sacking after the embarrassing FA Cup defeat to Conference side Luton, many Wolves fans might have feared the worst.

It might have been obvious that things were not working out with Solbakken, but following the debacle that followed Mick McCarthy’s dismissal last year with the events which unfolded, leading to a prolonged period of the club in limbo, we didn’t want the same thing to happen again!

Thankfully this year it hasn’t done. As Wolves made a quick approach for Doncaster Rovers manager Dean Saunders and quickly wrapped up a compensation package with the League One club and agreed personal terms with Saunders.

A brief statement on Wolves Official Website this morning read: ‘Compensation has been agreed with Doncaster Rovers to allow the 48-year-old to take over at Molineux following Saturday`s departure of Ståle Solbakken.

‘Saunders, who has completed the UEFA Pro Licence, has guided Rovers to second place in League One this season having started his managerial career with Wrexham.

‘He has also worked in the top flight as a first team coach at Blackburn and strikers coach at Newcastle, as well as being assistant manager of Wales for three years.’

He will speak to the media for the first time since his appointment later today.
