Wolves appoint Kenny Jackett as manager

Wolverhampton Wanderers have this afternoon confirmed the appointment of Kenny Jackett as the clubs new manager.

The former Millwall boss who recently resigned at the New Den, has penned an undisclosed contract at Molineux and replaces former Doncaster Rovers manager Dean Saunders who was sacked last month.

Wolves have been in turmoil since they sacked Mick McCarthy during the early part of 2012 where they eventually were relegated from the Premier League in the guidance of interim boss Terry Connor.

Stale Solbakken was appointed for the start of the season, and after numerous losses in the Championship after a summer of heavy spending, was sacked by the board and replaced by Dean Saunders.

The 51-year old, Jackett, has experience in League One by guiding Millwall to promotion in 2010, during his six year spell at the club, where he led the Lions to an FA Cup Semi-Final last season, where they lost to eventual winners Wigan Athletic at Wembley.

He will need to rebuilt the Wolves squad this summer, and will look to put a stop to their recent consecutive relegations with instant promotion back to the Championship.
