Jez Moxey: Aware that Wolves are going through a transition process
Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey has warned disgruntled supporters that things may get worse before they get better, as the club opens a new era.
After suffering relegation out of the Premier League last season, the Molieux outfit are struggling to get to grips with life back in the Championship.
They are, however, working under a new boss in Stale Solbakken and have seen influential figures such as Matt Jarvis and Steven Fletcher head through the exits.
Returning stability to the ranks and bringing about an improvement in performances on the field is now the order of the day, but Moxey admits that will take time.
He told the Express and Star: "It may need to get worse before it gets better and maybe people need to understand that.
"We have to be realistic about what we can achieve given the scale of change. We have seen that some foreign players take longer to settle compared to their British counterparts, and that is natural.
"I wouldn't say we are relaxed about the situation because we are never relaxed when we lose."
Another change to have occurred at Molineux is the removal of Terry Connor from the coaching staff.
After 13 years at the club, which included a spell as manager last season, the services of a highly-respected figure have been dispensed of by Solbakken.
The Norwegian tactician told the Birmingham Mail: "It was not a conversation I wanted to have. It was one of the most difficult decisions.
"But I have to do what I think is right for the club. I can't sit here in two or three months' time having not done what I think I should do.
"I'm the one who has to make the decisions to bring us forward and this is not a decision you want to take but it is a decision I felt was very right."
