On Thursday, Wolverhampton Wanderers confirmed the appointment of Ian Cathro to his backroom staff and he now takes up the position of first-team coach at the training ground.

Cathro and Nuno met originally at an SFA coaching course back in 2009 and such was the friendship they struck up, the Scotsman went on to become his assistant manager at Rio Ave in 2012. Having won two cups, a sixth-placed finish and a first European qualification in the clubs’ history, our manager then took Cathro to Valencia.

Having left the Spanish side for family reasons, he went on to work as assistant manager at Newcastle United before he had an eight-month spell managing Scottish Premier League side Hearts.

Although news of his appointment wasn’t confirmed until yesterday, he did meet up with the squad on Wednesday as they returned to pre-season training.

Cathro was certainly saying all the right things when he spoke to the Official Website.

“I am very excited about joining Wolves and looking forward to working with a coach and staff I know, trust and believe in. All of us share the same footballing philosophy and that is such an important factor for a successful coaching team. Wolves is a fantastic club with a rich history and lots of potential, and I can’t wait to get started.”
