Wolves search for a new manager is far from over, after it was revealed that the latest candidate to turn down the Molineux hotseat is the long deceased legend Brian Clough.
The former Nottingham Forest manager was summoned from beyond the grave for a 2 hour interview with help from ITV’s ‘Psychic’ Sally Morgan (Steve Morgan’s sister), but Wolves failed to tempt Clough to rescue the Premiership strugglers.
Wolves CEO Jez Moxey insists the decision was mutual: “I said this was no job for a novice and Brian is a candidate of the highest calibre, but we were concerned that communication could be an issue. It takes so long to spell out a message on a Ouija board that we could be 2 goals down before we’ve even spelled out ‘hello’.”
Worryingly for Wolves, they have rattled through candidates at an alarming rate with Alan Curbishley, Brian McDermott, Gus Poyet, Neil Warnock, former Rangers manager Walter Smith, and Walter Smith- a Butcher from Dudley who was telephoned by mistake, all rejecting the chance to succeed Mick McCarthy.
The Wolves CEO added: “I’ve always said that ideally we’d have a new manager in place in time for the Newcastle game, I said nothing about which season that would be.”
Reports that ex-Birmingham City boss Steve Bruce has been sleeping in a tent outside Molineux and intimidating any rival candidates has been dismissed as ‘pure fabrication’.
