Sheffield Wednesday look set to face new boss after Championship rivals exit…

Sheffield Wednesday is poised to welcome a new head coach following the recent departure of a long-serving manager in the Championship.

In the second-tier football league, there has been another managerial change as a four-year reign came to a close. Millwall, the Owls’ upcoming opponent, confirmed the end of their partnership with Gary Rowett, who had led the Lions for four years at the New Den.

Although Rowett had come close to securing a play-off spot on a couple of occasions during his tenure, he was never able to break into the top six.

As Sheffield Wednesday is set to face Millwall at Hillsborough on November 11, it is anticipated that a new manager will be in place to replace Rowett, who expressed that ‘the time just feels right’ for his departure.

Rowett thanked the fans for their unique support and the progress made by the club during his tenure, showing appreciation for various individuals involved in the club, including his backroom staff and players.

The club statement announced that Adam Barrett, Rowett’s assistant, will take an interim role alongside first team coach Paul Robinson. They also mentioned that a comprehensive recruitment process is already underway to build upon the success Rowett had overseen.

Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday’s new manager, Danny Röhl, is set to conduct his first pre-match press conference today as he prepares for his managerial debut with the Owls in an upcoming match against Watford.
