Wolves manager Terry Connor was clearly upset and holding back the tears in his post-match interview after relegation was confirmed after a 2-0 defeat by Man City.
Connor replaced Mick McCarthy at the helm at Molineux but in his time in charge the team have failed to win and relegation was confirmed on Sunday.
He told Sky Sports 1: ''It's tough - a raw day. We knew coming in we had to try and win it - it is raw for the players, staff, supporters and everyone connected to Wolves. It probably will be for a few days.''
Of the fans, he added: ''They were superb today and for the majority of the season they've been great. Today is a raw, emotional day. I understand they'll be hurting over the next weeks to come.''
Connor praised the side's commitment on the day but he was honest in his assessment of Wolves over the season.
''The lads gave everything over the course of the season,'' he said. ''It's obvious we haven't been good enough. But we need to be competitive in the final three games. We have to show absolute integrity.
''Over 35 games we were not good enough to stay in the league.''
Connor insisted he had no regrets and added: ''I've been very honest in what I've tried to do with players and the club.
''I have nothing to reproach myself from over the last 10 games. The reason we've failed today is over 35.
''I just want to get through to May 13 and get as many points as possible. I need all the players to commit to that and then sit down as a club and plot the future.''
