Glenn Hoddle has had his meeting with club CEO Jez Moxey and confessed what has been suspected all along.
He quit because his heart wasnt in the job.
He also cited Wolves current financial situation, as well as his own personal apathy as the main contributary factors in his decision.
The only surprise to many will be the fact that according to Hoddle, his current restless malaise didn't set in until recently, whereas many fans have felt it since day one.
For his part,the under fire CEO has expessed his anger at both the timing and the reasoning for Hoddles walk out.
As far back as April 10th Hoddle was well aware of the price to pay for another failed promotion campaign, and also of the implications to Jo Lescott, and at no time did he hint that his departure would be sooner rather than later
Hoddle's version of events is that it is better for him to go now than 5 or 6 weeks into the season.
Which hints at a belief that the first couple of months of the season may be tough going, and that by going now he has given the club 'reasonable amount of time to find a new manager.'
Jez Moxey was quite plain in his final response to Hoddle's reasoning.
'Our view is that we would have preferred him to have done it at the May board meeting. He accepted that but said he did not feel the way he does now at that time.
'I told him we were disappointed and angry but I accept his version of events.
'Despite what some might think, our relationship has been a strong and positive one.'
But in ending, he touched on a subject that was as innevetable as it was necessary.
'He told me he has not had any other (job) offers. That is something we will address if it happens.'
19 months, a few high, many lows, and yet another false dawn in the history of Wolverhampton Wanderers that will probably be remembered by the sentence
'The other reason he gave was that he said in himself he did not feel 100 per cent behind the job.'
Another case of ' I never said them things what I said.' eh, Glenn?
