Football agent and former Wolves favourite Mel Eves has a good feeling about Stale Solbakken.
Adlene Guedioura’s recent exit to Nottingham Forest has irked some supporters, to put it mildly.
But to Eves it is a sign that the Norwegian will not shirk from some far heftier decisions that lie ahead.
The boss’s aim when he was appointed in May was to get Wolves singing and dancing again after a woeful season of under-performance which led to their Premier demise.
“Solbakken has come in and he’ll sort it out,” said ex-star Eves, who won the League Cup in 1980 as the highlight of a near decade with the Molineux club.
“I’ve seen his CV and I’ve been speaking to a few people in the game. He could turn out to be a very astute signing,” he said.
“As with anything, you need times when things need to be right.
“Roy Hodgson didn’t have a very good time at Liverpool but his CV still shows that he is a top manager.
“You can’t have a crystal ball to say he’s definitely going to succeed but I would have thought he’s got a very, very good chance of succeeding – which is all you can ask for.
“Solbakken is unknown by many but I’ve got a feeling he’ll do pretty well. He seems to have a pretty good record.
“I know he’s had a disastrous year in Germany with Cologne, but looking at the way the club was set up Wolves are probably a little bit more stable. He’ll be coming in on the back of a pretty stable period under Mick McCarthy.
