By Will Butcher
Former Championship stalwart Adam Virgo believes Wolves’ appointment of Walter Zenga was doomed from the beginning.
The Italian boss has been sacked as manager of the Midlands giants, after a dismal run of four losses in their last five games.
Channel 5 football pundit Virgo, who has played for Brighton, Celtic and Yeovil, posted on his personal Twitter account that Wolves’ decision to choose Zenga was perilous from the off.

Now 18th in the Championship table, Wolves are just four points off the relegation zone after picking up just 16 points from 14 games.
Saturday’s dismal 1-0 loss to Leeds at Molineux has seemingly succumbed Zenga to the managerial scrapheap, after winger Kemar Roofe scored in the 70th minute.

The club decided to appoint former Inter Milan and Sampdoria goalkeeper Zenga as their head coach in the summer after parting ways with Kenny Jackett, who is now in charge of Rotherham.
Zenga has been a manager for almost 20 years after taking over former playing side New England Revolution in 1998. He’s also managed in Romania, Qatar, Italy and Turkey.
Wolves face a trip to Blackburn on Saturday, but it appears that Zenga will not have a chance to save his job despite Owen Coyle’s Rovers sitting in the relegation zone.
