Wolves sack coach Walter Zenga after 87 days in charge

Wolves have announced head coach Walter Zenga has left the club with immediate effect.

Zenga's departure comes with the Championship club lying 18th in the table, having won just four of their 14 league fixtures this season and having lost four of their last five.

The 56-year-old former Italy goalkeeper was only appointed to the role by Wolves' new Chinese owners 87 days ago on July 30, taking over from Kenny Jackett.

A statement released by the club read: "Wolves have announced that Walter Zenga's contract has been terminated with immediate effect. Stefano Cusin, assistant head coach, has also left the club.

"Wolves will be conducting a thorough process to recruit a new head coach and won't be revealing any timescales associated with this important task. Rob Edwards, first team coach, has been placed in interim charge of the first team, supported by under-23s Coach, Scott Sellars.

"The club would like to extend their thanks and best wishes to Walter and Stefano for their contribution to Wolves during the season so far. Wolves will be making no further comment at this stage."
