Wolves have announced the appointment of former Millwall manager Kenny Jackett as the club’s new boss.
Jackett resigned from his position at The Den last month after more than six years in charge, in which he led Millwall out of League One and consolidated their position in the Championship.
The 51-year-old – who has also managed Watford and Swansea City since retiring as a player in 1990 – was ecstatic to be named as the new boss at Molineux on Friday.
“I am both proud and delighted to have been appointed head coach at Wolves, and am really looking forward to the challenge ahead,” Jackett told the club’s official website.
The ex-Wales international will be immediately tasked with helping Wolves out of League One, after the club suffered successive relegations from the Premier League and the Championship.
But he will have to deal with the departures of several key players before anything else, with Wolves needing to slash their wage bill before looking to build a squad capable of winning promotion.
