If things do not work out for Ståle Solbakken at Wolverhampton Wanderers the Norwegian boss will not be able to say he wasn’t given enough backing.
For someone with limited experience of English football he appears to have been given a free reign at Molineux, he has been able to sign who he likes and get rid of the players he doesn’t.
Bjorn Sigurdarson, Frank Nouble, Tongo Doumbia, Slawomir Peszko, Georg Margreitter and Razak Boukari have all been signed by Solbakken and Bakary Sako becomes the most recent addition.
Sako is a 24-year-old French midfielder who signs from French club St Etienne for a transfer fee in excess of £3million and he has signed a three-year deal.
The former France Under-21 international is the most expensive signing Solbakken has made to date and that could be because the gaffer sees him as our potential match winner going forward.
He’s left footed, can play on either wing, as an attacking midfielder or behind the striker, he should prove to be exciting and Sako hopes to make the Wolves fans happy.
“I am really happy to have signed for Wolves, It is important for me to be joining such an exciting project.’ he told Wolves Official Website.
He continued: “I have always wanted to play in England because I believe that English football suits my style.
“And I think Wolves is a very good club for me to join.
“I am looking forward to playing for the fans and hopefully I can make them happy.”
