STALE SOLBAKKEN HAS been sacked as manager of Championship side Wolves, just hours after the club were dumped out of the FA Cup by non-league Luton.

The struggling club, who were relegated from the Premier League last season, also terminated the contracts of assistant manager Johan Lange and Patrick Weiser, the first team coach.

Wolves are currently 18th in the Championship and have won just three out of the last 16 league games and a disappointing run of results culminated in Saturday’s FA Cup third round 1-0 defeat to Luton Town.

Solbakken had only been in charge at Molineux for six months.

“Kevin Thelwell, head of football development and recruitment, will take charge of first team training until a new manager is appointed, assisted by development coach, Steve Weaver,” said a club statement.

“The club would like to offer their thanks and best wishes to Stale, Johan and Patrick.”
