Response to SPTT Report

Wolves remain committed to voluntary code

Wolves have welcomed today’s statement from the EFL in response to the report published by theSports People’s Think Tank, in outlining the circumstances surrounding the appointments of Head Coaches Walter Zenga and Paul Lambert.

As shared with the EFL, the appointment of Walter Zenga came during exceptional circumstances and timescale during a transition of ownership, and Wolves explained why they didn’t adhere to the EFL’s voluntary recruitment code for Black & Ethnic Minority (BAME) coaches. This explanation was communicated to the EFL.

Again as outlined by the EFL, Wolves fully adhered to the voluntary code during the recruitment process resulting in the recent appointment of Paul Lambert.

Wolves have provided details of the two processes to the EFL as requested,and remain committed to the club’s role as one of the ten clubs which voluntarily put themselves forward to take part in the BAME recruitment process.

The club was not contacted by the SPTT during the compiling of this report, and is disappointed that it has been published containing inaccurate information relating to the appointment of Paul Lambert.
