Steve Bull: Wolves have to give Walter Zenga time

Sport | Published:

Wolves legend Steve Bull believes it's too early to be considering Walter Zenga's position as boss.

The Italian is coming under increasing pressure to transform Wolves' results after a run of two wins in 10 matches saw them slide down the table to 18th.

They are four points ahead of the relegation places – and travel to 22nd-placed Blackburn Rovers for a crunch clash this weekend.

But Bully said: "You can't talk about him at the moment, you've got to give him time.

"The last thing Wolves want right now is a bit of disruption. You can't have that every single season.

"You want somebody to go there, settle the side down, give him until Christmas, see how he gets on and make the decision then.

"I'd give him the chance first. I'd see how he gets on."

Of Wolves' current form, Bully said they needed a bit of luck.

"It's very mixed at the moment," he added. "I think he's got the right players there, it's just putting the blend together.


"We have been a bit unstable, we don't have that killer touch in front of goal. We're having the chances but the goals aren't going in. We need a black cat on the field to get that bit of luck back and get us on a run again."

Meanwhile team general manager Andrea Butti has defended his presence in the dugout in recent matches.

The former Monaco and Inter man asked fans on Twitter to get behind the team – and said everything was being done to improve the current situation.

"I did 400 games in the dug out with Inter and Monaco... I think that going there is not so unusual," he said.


"I hope you will support the club if you don't like us too much, because we are doing our best to improve the situation on every and team...

"Everything is done with the target to support the team and the coach. Everything. Always.

"We know what (it) means (to) support a club. We know the passion of the fan. Without fan, there is no football."
