Wolves owner Steve Morgan believes new manager Stale Solbakken has the pedigree to bring success to the Midlands club, and insists the Norwegian's appointment is astute rather than brave.

Solbakken was reluctant to make any rash predictions about Wolves returning to the Barclays Premier League at the first attempt following relegation from the top flight.

But Morgan has no doubts about the 44-year-old being the ideal successor, and said: "It is only brave in the sense Stale is not known in the United Kingdom. He is legendary in Scandinavia. I don't think it is a brave appointment. He is a proven manager, has won countless silverware and his record is outstanding."
