Julen Lopetegui is close to being the manager of Wolverhampton!
This news has been reported by numerous English media who claim that the Spaniard is now ready to accept Wolves’ offer, which he rejected a month ago.
The reasons were of a private nature, as his father was in poor health, but now he is much better, and Lopetegui is ready to return to coaching.
He was recently sacked by Sevilla after a disappointing start to the season, but still recorded excellent results with the Andalusians as he was a regular in the Champions League and in 2020 won the Europa League.
Before Sevilla, he did not make a name for himself on the Real Madrid bench, where he quickly sat down just before the World Cup in Russia. As coach of Spain, Lopetegui built a powerful team, and before the trip to Russia he could not refuse the invitation of Florentino Perez, who was looking for a replacement for Zinedine Zidane.
