EPL: Wolves Appoint Julen Lopetugui As New Manager

Wolves have appointed former Spain and Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui as the club’s new manager.

Lopetegui now succeeds Bruno Lage, who was sacked on October 2 after winning just one of his final 15 games in charge.

He is slated to begin work on November 14, and his first game will be against Arsenal, which will be the last Premier League game before the World Cup in Qatar begins.
