After eight years as a youth coach at Benfica, the Portuguese took over as manager of the first team in the middle of the 2018/19 season and immediately won the title.

Lage has Premier League experience, having worked as an assistant to Carlos Carvalhal at Swansea City in 2017/18, and now has the opportunity to lead his own team in the competition.

" A trend in Lage's career has been his development of youngsters, including Joao Felix, who earned a move to Atletico Madrid, while his improvements of Ruben Dias and Carlos Vinicius saw both move to the Premier League last summer," Wolves said in a statement.

“This is a team and a club that want to make history and compete in the Premier League. So I'm happy, excited, and filled with a strong desire to do great things for this club.”
