Having not made a career as a player, Bruno Lage turned to the coaching profession at only 21 years old. After leading the youth teams of Vitoria Setubal and then Benfica, Bruno Lage flew to England, where he served as Carlos Carvalhal’s deputy at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea. After this parenthesis, Lage returned to Portugal where he led the reserve, then the first team of Benfica. His tenure at the head of the Eagles allowed him to win a title of Portuguese champion and hatch Joao Felix, who is today the heyday of Atletico Madrid.
In Wolverhampton, Bruno Lage will be tasked with bringing the club back to the European Cup after their disappointing 13th place this year.
