Wolves fire Saunders after relegation to 3rd tier

Wolverhampton Wanderers has reacted to its demotion to English
football’s third tier by firing manager Dean Saunders.

The club in central England was playing in the Premier League
last season but has slipped to back-to-back relegations.

Saunders, a former Wales and Liverpool striker, became Wolves’
fourth manager in 12 months when he was hired in January but
couldn’t halt the team’s slide down the League Championship
standings. It finished next-to-last after a 2-0 loss at Brighton on
Saturday in its final match.

Wolves say Saunders’ assistant, Brian Carey, will also be
leaving the club.
