Walter Zenga- Wolves move is not a gamble

The former Italy international was a shock appointment on Saturday, less than 12 hours after the club announced they had sacked Kenny Jackett.

Zenga joined a week before the start of the Sky Bet Championship season, with Wolves heading to Rotherham on Saturday, following last week's buyout of the club by Chinese group Fosun.

Wolves are the 56-year-old's 10th club in the last 10 years but Zenga insisted, despite being a Championship rookie, he is not a leap in the dark

He said: "No, why? Why is it a risk? Don't take it from the Internet that everything is right because the Internet is a good thing in 2016 but it can also be the worst thing

Some things cannot be (written) in the right way.

"This is not the moment to explain the reasons why

Some time I can tell you I moved (from a job) because for sixth months I didn't receive a salary but the Internet doesn't mention this

"It doesn't matter how long

It's the result which depends on the length of the contract

If the coach is working well, this is the point.

"It's an amazing club and I will do my best to give my knowledge and passion to them."

Ex-Liverpool winger Joa o Teixeira is close to signing from Porto with Silvio joining on a free from Atletico Madrid and Helder Costa from Benfica on loan

But despite the influx of new signings, Zenga offered no guarantees he will lead Wolves to promotion

He added: "I wish but I cannot promise

I cannot say we'll go (up) but I can promise we'll work hard and do all the effort we can."
