Gary O’Neil has been immediately appointed as Julen Lopetegui’s successor as head coach by the Wolves.

Despite leading the Cherries to survival, the 40-year-old, the club’s first British coach in six years, was fired by Bournemouth in June.

After Wolves and Lopetegui reached a “agreement to part ways” on Tuesday as a result of differences on hiring and the club’s direction, he has now signed a three-year contract.

Sporting director Matt Hobbs said, “We’re thrilled to welcome Gary to the team.

“We’re excited to see what we can do together at Wolves. He’s a young coach who is extremely motivated, has strong ideals, and is well-regarded by everyone with whom he has worked.

“Our players demonstrated their talent during the preseason, and I am confident Gary and his staff will continue to work with this group to coach, develop, and succeed.

“Everyone at Wolves is eager to welcome Gary, give him their full support, and work together to help the club keep moving forward as a unit,” said Gary.

Only a few days remain until the start of the Premier League season, and O’Neil’s first game in command will be against Manchester United on Monday at Old Trafford.
