The current Wolverhampton Wanderers manager has been linked with a move to Chelsea of late.

Wolverhampton Wanderers will reportedly move for Bruno Lage if Nuno Espirito Santo is lured away from Molineux, according to CM Jornal.

But what should those of a Wolves persuasion know about the high-flying Benfica manager?

HITC Sport has the lowdown…

He’s worked in English football before…

As assistant to Carlos Carvalhal at both Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City. Lage, who never played professionally and has coached for more than half of his 42 years, previously worked alongside his compatriot in the United Arab Emirates.

He returned to Benfica last summer…

As manager of the Eagles’ B-team. He had previously coached the Portuguese giants’ youngsters, before his stints in the UAE and United Kingdom. After Rui Vitoria’s departure at the start of January, it was Lage who got the call as interim boss.

And got off to a flying start as manager…

Winning his first two matches in temporary charge, landing the role until the end of the season initially. But after extending his unbeaten run to 11 games – 10 of which ended in victory – the now joint-leaders gave him a four-year contract.

He could have managed one of Wolves’ local rivals…

Aston Villa, according to The Telegraph. The newspaper claimed that Villa wanted talks with the then Benfica B-team boss about succeeding Steve Bruce, only for Dean Smith to land the job shortly afterwards.

Wolves fans should be familiar with his agent…

Jorge Mendes, who it is understood has been advising the club’s owners since their 2016 takeover, already has a number of clients on the books at Molineux – including the current boss, Nuno.
