Wolves sack Solbakken after Cup defeat

2:14 pm on 6 January 2013

Stale Solbakken has been sacked as manager of English Championship side Wolves, just hours after the club was dumped out of the FA Cup by non-league Luton Town.

The struggling club, who were relegated from the Premier League last season, also terminated the contracts of assistant manager Johan Lange and Patrick Weiser, the first team coach.

Wolves are currently 18th in the Championship and have won just three out of the last 16 league games and a disappointing run of results culminated in Saturday's FA Cup third round 1-nil defeat to Luton Town.

Solbakken had only been in charge at Molineux for six months.
