Wolverhampton Wanderers chief executive Jez Moxey has warned fans that things may get worse before they get better at Molineux.
Stale Solbakken's side have won just one of their opening four Championship fixtures on their return to the second tier, and are yet to keep a clean sheet this term.
Moxey acknowledges that the departures of Michael Kightly, Matt Jarvis, Steven Fletcher, and assistant manager Terry Connor, have created an unstable atmosphere.
Moxey 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.
He added: "I wouldn't say we are relaxed about the situation because we are never relaxed when we lose."
