Connor becomes Premier League boss


TERRY CONNOR now holds the status as the Premier League’s only black manager. Wolves have promoted assistant boss Terry Connor, 49, to manager until the end of the season.

The club sacked Mick McCarthy on February 13 in the wake of the previous day's 5-1 home defeat by Black Country rivals West Brom.

Wolves turned to Connor, 49, after Walter Smith, Alan Curbishley and Brian McDermott ruled themselves out. As a player, Connor scored 91 goals from 358 games in the Football League playing for Leeds United, Brighton & Hove Albion, Portsmouth, Swansea City and Bristol City, and was capped once for the England under-21 team.

Wolves owner Steve Morgan said: ‘"Having spoken to a number of people we have drawn that process to a close and myself and the board are unanimous that Terry is the right man to lead the club for the remainder of the season.”
