Taking a Chance? Sheffield Wednesday Consider Danny Rohl as New Managerial Option: Expert Opinions…

Danny Rohl has emerged as a leading contender for the vacant Sheffield Wednesday manager position. The club is in search of a new head coach following the departure of Xisco Munoz, who endured a brief and unsuccessful tenure of only 10 league games in charge.

Alex Crook has suggested that the former Southampton assistant, Danny Rohl, could be a potential candidate to take charge of the Yorkshire outfit’s first-team squad. But is Rohl the right choice for Sheffield Wednesday?

Declan Harte believes that Munoz’s arrival was underwhelming, leading to his inevitable departure. In contrast, Rohl represents an intriguing option for Hillsborough. The German coach has garnered a reputation as a promising talent, having worked with renowned managers like Ralph Hassenhuttl and Hansi Flick. Harte suggests that Rohl has likely absorbed valuable insights from these mentors and could be ready to take on a head coaching role.

Considering Sheffield Wednesday’s dire situation in the Championship—sitting at the bottom with just three points from 11 games and no wins—the club needs a significant turnaround. Rohl may be the catalyst for change, making him a gamble worth taking, especially when there are few proven options with impressive track records available.

On the other hand, Alfie Burns sees appointing Rohl as a risky move for Sheffield Wednesday. While acknowledging Rohl’s coaching abilities, Burns questions whether the club’s owner, Chansiri, can afford to take such a gamble.

The Wednesday job is particularly challenging, given the club’s division caused by the owner’s past decisions and Xisco’s disastrous appointment. With the team currently at the bottom of the Championship, maintaining their status in the league will be a formidable task.

Burns emphasizes the need for Chansiri to make an appointment that unifies the fanbase and shifts the focus back to on-field performance. However, he expresses doubts that Rohl is the right person to fulfill that requirement, given the complex situation at the club.”


Danny Rohl Remains a Strong Contender for the Next Sheffield Wednesday Managerial Role as Other Possible Options Withdraw…

Lee Bullen and Oscar Garcia have removed themselves from consideration for the Sheffield Wednesday manager position, leaving Danny Rohl as the increasingly likely choice.

Lee Bullen, a former player and three-time interim manager for Sheffield Wednesday, enjoys significant popularity among the fans at Hillsborough.

While he ventured into full-time management with Ayr United last January and achieved a second-place finish in the previous season’s Scottish Championship, he ultimately lost out to Partick Thistle in the playoffs.

Despite being linked to the vacancy created by Xisco Munoz’s departure, Bullen has categorically denied any interest, stating, “There’s no truth in it. I’m comfortable here, I’m happy here.

I’ve had zero contact, so there is nothing happening there. I’m just preparing and looking forward to going back to an old haunt of mine at East End Park a week on Saturday.”

Similarly, Oscar Garcia, who was believed to be a contender for the role of Darren Moore’s replacement during the summer, has opted to focus on other opportunities. Like his fellow countryman, Garcia previously managed Watford and also had a stint with Brighton and Hove Albion. His attention is currently elsewhere, with Bordeaux and another club expressing interest.

Steve Evans, the former manager of Stevenage, Leeds United, and Rotherham United, has also distanced himself from the position.

In contrast, Danny Rohl, who is only 34 and lacks senior-level managerial experience, has an impressive coaching background with RB Leipzig, Southampton, Bayern Munich, and the German national team. His notable affiliations make him the preferred candidate of chairman Dejphon Chansiri.

Meanwhile, Bradford City is still in the process of shortlisting candidates for their vacant managerial role. Caretaker manager Kevin McDonald enjoyed a successful start with a victory over Swindon Town on Saturday, while the club is sifting through applications, which may include former Huddersfield Town manager Danny Cowley.
