Wolverhampton Wanderers one of the team’s to have created the biggest upsets in the Premier League in recent seasons is reportedly considering Gennaro Gattuso for the position of manager.
Right now, Gennaro Gattuso has many critics, as well as many supporters. His brief career as a manager has seen him take charge of teams like AC Milan and Napoli, with some lauding his combative spirit and his pragmatism as a tactician.
It looks like Wolves are among his fans, and the news couldn’t come at a better time for the former Italian international. While the blade long seems to have hovered over the manager’s head in Naples, a managerial position in the Premier League would certainly go a long way in cementing Gattuso’s reputation.
Espirito Santo is Wolves’ manager and the man that has guided them to surprising and unforeseen success. The club promoted back to the Premier League in 2016 and has routinely remained among the league’s elite teams.
Rumors are suggesting that Santos and Wolves’ board believe that the club is closing in on a cycle. Both the manager and the club might be eager to make changes come to the end of the season. According to reports super-agent, Jorge Mendes, who represents Santos, is lining up potential Premier League suitors for his clients.
While still in the early stages, it is understood that Gattuso is among the managers that Wolves are considering a possible replacement starting with the 2021/22 season.
