‘Hughes sacking’ Wolverhampton financial crisis? Manager says “I have to tell the truth”

Head coach Julen Lopetegui has spoken out.

Wolverhampton fell to a 0-5 defeat at the hands of Arsenal in the 38th round of the 2022-23 English Premier League (EPL) at the Emirates Stadium in London, England, at 0:30 a.m. on 29 September. With the result, Wolverhampton (41 points) finish the season in 13th place in the final standings.

It was one-sided. Arsenal took an early lead with a Granit Xhaka brace in the 11th and 14th minutes. They added another in the 27th minute to make it a goal-fest. Wolverhampton responded at the start of the second half with the introduction of Nabil Neves and Layan Ait-Nouri.메이저놀이터

However, the substitutions proved futile. Wolverhampton pulled a goal back 13 minutes into the second half through Gabriel Jesus. Arsenal capped the scoring in the 23rd minute through Yakup Kibio. In the end, Wolverhampton lost their final game of the season to Arsenal.

This summer is crucial. Wolverhampton are currently plagued by Financial Fair Play (FFP) issues. The investment promised to Lopetegui, who took over at the club, is unclear, and there are suggestions that Hwang and other key players could leave as scapegoats.

According to the BBC, “Lopetegui took over from last-placed Wolverhampton in November last year and succeeded in keeping them up. But his future is uncertain due to financial problems. Wolverhampton need to make up for £150 million in losses that have accumulated over three years.”

“At the moment I am the Wolverhampton manager, but of course I am ambitious,” Lopetegui said, according to the outlet, before adding: “The most important thing is to tell the fans the truth. We are competing on the EPL stage. If there are problems, we have to solve them.”

“The future belongs to the club, not to me. I hope they do what they need to do (invest) despite the financial problems. I hope the rest of the clubs will do the same. Now is the time to tell the truth and analyse. It’s time to learn and work for the future,” he said.

At worst, Lopetegui could be on his way out. Wolverhampton are looking for a breakthrough by reducing their squad. The summer transfer window is upon us.
