Walter Zenga has been sacked as Wolves manager, according to a reliable journalist.

Tim Spiers, who writes for the Express and Star, claims that Wolves have parted ways with their first team manager after just 87 days in charge.

Spiers announced on his official Twitter account that the Midlands club taken drastic actions after a poor start to the season.

Wolves suffered a 1-0 defeat on Saturday which meant that the Midlands side have not picked up a league win in five games, putting increasing pressure on manager Zenga.

They are now 18th in the Championship table, having picked up 16 points from 14 games, and are just four points off the relegation zone.

The club decided to appoint Zenga as their head coach in the summer after parting ways with Kenny Jackett.

They face an away match against Blackburn on Saturday and it appears that Zenga will not have a chance to save his job, despite Rovers sitting in inside the relegation places.

Zenga has 18 years of managerial experience and decided in the summer to take on his first position in English football.
