On the club’s official website, Lopetegui said: “I wish Wolves and everybody at the club the very best of luck for the future, and thank them for the opportunity granted at the time to take charge of this wonderful club. 

“It has been an honour to enjoy this adventure in the day-to-day company of Matt Hobbs, Matt Wild, head of player care Lisa Hollis and every single employee of the club; whom I wish to thank for their support and help at every moment. 

“I want to thank the players who have always given their all to reach our goals, and especially the fans who made me feel like one of them right from the start, and have always been amazing to me, my staff, and my family.”

Remind you that following a successful spell at Sevilla, where he won the 2019-20 Europa League, Lopetegui took over at Molineux last November.

Despite this, Lopetegui is looking for a new managerial role as a result of his apparent irritation over the club’s lack of spending.
