Fresh claims of multi-million pound exit for Wednesday’s boss emerge.



Sheffield Wednesday face a battle to keep manager Danny Röhl this summer, but recent claims have given the Owls a boost ahead of the 2024/25 season.


Wednesday had only three points when Röhl took over for Xisco Munoz at Hillsborough in October, but the youthful coach inspired a miraculous comeback to guide his club to safety in the final weeks of the season.

After spending nearly the entire season in the bottom three, Wednesday’s impressive six-game unbeaten run, including three consecutive victories in their final three fixtures, secured their survival as they finished 20th in the table, with Birmingham City and Huddersfield Town joining Rotherham United in League One.

The Owls were one of the division’s best teams in the second part of the season, with Röhl winning 16 of his 38 ges in charge, drawing six and losing 16, an astounding result given the situation he inherited at the club.

Interest emerges in Danny Röhl

Röhl’s outstanding performance in South Yorkshire has not gone unnoticed throughout the second division, and interest in the German has grown since the end of the 2023/24 season.

Hull City sacked head coach Liam Rosenior on Tuesday, despite finishing seventh, and Hull Live reports that Röhl, Queens Park Rangers manager Marti Cifuentes, and former Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper are among the Tigers’ potential replacements.

Hull are not the only Championship team keeping an eye on Röhl; Sunderland, who have been without a manager since the dismissal of Michael Beale in February, are also thought to be interested in signing him as their permanent manager.

The Black Cats’ interest in Röhl was first reported by i News in March, and according to recent claims from The Northern Echo, the club is actively monitoring his situation as he talks with Dejphon Chansiri about his long-term future in South Yorkshire.

According to the most recent rumors from The Star, a compensation sum of “eye-watering £5 million” will be required to pry the 35-year-old away on Wednesday. They further state that a charge nearly twice that much will be required to “take his close-knit coaching staff along with him”.

Compensation required for Danny Röhl

Most clubs, particularly Championship ones, are unlikely to pay such a high fee for a manager, let alone a player.

It’s good news for Sheffield Wednesday fans, who now know Röhl will likely stay in charge next season until a top-flight team comes knocking or a club can afford to pay a big compensation fee for a manager.

It protects the club in any case. Funds like that may be used in a variety of ways for Wednesday, or they will keep a manager in control who appears to be steering the club in the right path and creating something rather unique at Hillsborough based on early indications.
