Stale Solbakken had a thoroughly poor tenure with Wolverhampton Wanderers back in 2012 after the 48-year-old was brought in to try and steady the ship following the club's relegation from the Premier League. Players were sold against his wishes, the team was not clicking and eventually he was sacked in January 2013 as the Midlands side went on to be relegated to League One. However as reported by Daily Mail, the Norwegian has said that he does not have anything to prove on English soil when his Copenhagen side face Leicester City in the Champions League.

Solbakken had previously managed Copenhagen before he went to Molineux, and he returned to the capital club just eight months after his disastrous stint in England. Now, all he is doing is remaining focused on the task at hand against the Foxes.

"It's not about me getting revenge, it's about FC Copenhagen getting a good game," said Solbakken when speaking to Daily Mail.

"We (Wolves) beat Leicester 2-1 back then so they are the ones who get revenge in this case.

"We started brightly and were top three in the first 10 games and then we hit a Championship dry spell due to different reasons. Before I got the chance to turn it around I was sacked. You get sacked after six or seven months in the Championship, managers do in the Championship, I don't think I'm the first one."

Solbakken was one of a handful of managers that attempted to get things back on track for Wolves, however the managerial merry-go-round proved to be more harmful than anything else for the club.

The win over Leicester was one of handful during his time at Molineux, with Sylvan Ebanks-Blake to head home and Richard Stearman scoring for Wolves and Paul Konchesky netting a consolation for the Foxes from a free kick.

Things are very different now, as all focuses turn to the Champions League as Copenhagen attempt to leapfrog Leicester and move up into second place in what is a tough group to call.
