Walter Zenga still 'heartbroken' over Wolverhampton Wanderers sacking

:Headline: Walter Zenga still 'heartbroken' over Wolverhampton Wanderers sacking:
Walter Zenga says that he remains 'heartbroken' having been sacked as Wolverhampton Wanderers boss in 2016.
By , Senior Reporter | 24d

Walter Zenga has claimed that he was not given enough time to earn success at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The surprise replacement for Kenny Jackett before the start of the 2016-17 campaign, Zenga lasted just 17 matches at Molineux, recording six wins and seven defeats.

The whirlwind tenure came shortly after Fosun International had taken over the club with the objective of reaching the Premier League as soon as possible.

While that ultimately took two years to achieve, Zenga has suggested that he would have been capable of replicating the progression under Nuno Espirito Santo had he not been removed from his position.

Speaking to The Athletic, Zenga said: "My problem was that Fosun wanted to change a lot of things, and the mentality, and I didn't have the time they could give me.

"Nuno is a great coach and they have bought a lot of players, in my time we were talking about signing [Willy] Boly and [Diogo] Jota, but they couldn't get them at the time.

"I wanted to bring back the enthusiasm to Molineux and step by step we arrived to do these things. The Championship is a long marathon and who knows what we could have done, in one year, not two.

"I'll probably come to Wolves and stay a couple of days for a game. But, how can I say, my heart is still broke. I regret that the club didn't give me more time."

Since parting ways with Wolves, Zenga has had spells with Italian sides Crotone and Venezia. body check tags ::
