SAUNDERS JOINS WOLVES

The Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers have decided to appoint Dean Saunders to replace the former manager Stale Solbakken, who was sacked during the weekend after the FA Cup exit at the hands of Luton town. The results have been extremely poor since the 34-year-old Norwegian arrived at the club.

Doncaster Rovers revealed recently that they have received an offer for the manager. Saunders has been the clear favourite to take over the job at the club. He has done extremely well with the League One club so far this campaign. Doncaster Rovers are currently second in the League One table.

They are amongst the favourites to secure promotion to the cup championship automatically, which has been largely due to the managerial input of Saunders. Wolves have been suffering from poor form of late. They have managed to win just one match in the last 5 matches, while they recently lost during the weekend to the nonleague Luton town. This has increased the pressure on the manager significantly, who was given the task of getting Wolves back to the Premier league at the first instance. However, it looks like finishing even in the play-off position will be difficult for the club this season due to the bad first half.

"I have just come off the phone with Wolverhampton Wanderers' chief executive Jez Moxey and can confirm that Dean Saunders has agreed to take over as manager at Molineux. We have agreed a good deal for Doncaster Rovers. Work has already started on trying to find a replacement for Dean and continue our push for promotion back to the Championship. I have spoken with Dean to thank him for the fantastic job he has done here at Doncaster and wish him well for the future," said the Doncaster Rovers Chief executive, Baldwin.
