WOLVERHAMPTON, England (AP) — Bruno Leigh was fired by Wolverhampton on Sunday after just one win for his team in the Premier League this season.
A 2-0 defeat at West Ham on Saturday left Wolves in the relegation zone and continued their dangerous run of form.
“Bruno is a great coach, a hard-working and dedicated manager, and a warm, intelligent and honest man,” Wolves chairman Jeff Shea said on the club’s website. He and his staff were a pleasure to work with during his time at Wolves. So it is with great regret that we have to make what has been a difficult decision.
“I honestly have no doubt in Bruno’s ability, and I’m sure he will succeed elsewhere, but the form and performance of the team over the last few months means we have no choice but to act. We don’t have
“On behalf of everyone at Wolves, I would like to thank Bruno and his coaching team for all their efforts during their time with the club, and wish them all the best for the future. “
The Lodge team has only got six points from eight games this season and is 18th in the standings.
The 46-year-old Portuguese replaced Nuno Espirito Santo at Molineux in June 2021 and led Wolves to 10th place in his first season at the club.
But he has not been able to maintain that form this season, with last month’s win against Southampton the only win in the league so far.
Steve Davies and James Collins will take over coaching duties ahead of Wolves’ next game against Chelsea.
