Ikeme’s Manager At Wolves, Paul Lambert, Sacked

Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme will be playing under a new manager next season after English Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers parted company with Paul Lambert.

Former Borussia Dortmund player and 1997 Champions League winner Lambert, 47, joined Wolves in November as replacement for Walter Zenga when they were in 19th place in the English second-tier but left them in 15th spot at the end of the season.

“Wolves and Paul Lambert have agreed to part company following a football review which took place at the end of the season,” Wolves said in a statement on their official website on Tuesday.

 “The club would like to place on record its thanks to Paul for his dedication and professionalism during his time at the club, which included some memorable victories, and wish him all the best in his future career.

 

“In addition, first team coaches Stuart Taylor and Rob Edwards, and Head of Sport Science Tony Daley, will also be leaving Wolves with immediate effect.

 

“As part of the coaching restructure, the club are currently in discussions with Pat Mountain regarding the possibility of him taking up a role within the Academy.

 

“Tony and Rob have given many years of loyal and committed service to Wolves, and the club would like to thank them for their substantial contributions over a long period of time.

 

“Along with Paul, all three departing members of the backroom staff leave with the club’s best wishes.

 

“A further announcement on a new Head Coach and backroom team will be made in due course.”

Nigeria keeper Ikeme, who is currently injured, made 31 appearances last season for Wolves.
