Sheffield Wednesday: Sunderland managerial claim amidst setbacks.



Sheffield Wednesday has undoubtedly had a significant impact since taking over as Sheffield Wednesday boss earlier this season. After a disappointing start to the season in which the highs of the League One play-off final victory over Barnsley were quickly forgotten, The Owls parted ways with Xisco Munoz after his three-month reign came to an end following a 1-0 defeat at West Bromwich Albion.

Although Wednesday remain in the relegation zone, with the final run-in now looming, Rohl’s tactics have given his team a fighting chance of staying in the Championship. The efforts of the former Bayern Munich and Germany coach has not gone ignored by several other possible suitors, and The Sun’s Alan Nixon now claims Rohl is being considered by Sunderland as the Black Cats hunt for a permanent successor to former boss Michael Beale. However, the source also said Wednesday would be entitled to a significant compensation pay, implying Rohl would have to work with a limited coaching staff at the Stadium of Light.

Owls winger responds to Rohl’s ‘attitude’ comment

Danny Rohl’s decision to leave Marvin Johnson out of Sheffield Wednesday’s squad for Saturday’s game against Queens Park Rangers surprised many. And there was more surprise when the Owls manager declined to speak about the winger after the win, implying that the decision was based on fight and attitude.

When asked if he had been absent in the capital due to injury, Röhl told BBC Sheffield: “We had some minor issues, but I won’t discuss Marvin today.” I’ll only talk about my squad here, because they fight and have the appropriate mindset.”

Johnson, on the other hand, explained that he was absent due to a minor injury experienced in recent weeks and emphasized that he is ‘always committed’ to the Owls’ cause.

Rangers boss makes blame claim after Wednesday loss

Marti Cifuentes, Queens Park Rangers’ manager, has accepted responsibility for his team’s 2-0 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday. The Owls traveled to Loftus Road hoping to snap a four-game losing streak and give their Championship survival effort a significant boost by defeating a team on the verge of relegation. That’s exactly what Danny Rohl’s side did, with second-half goals from Djeidi Gassama and Anthony Musaba giving them an essential three points and boosting hopes that the Owls can stay in the second tier for more than one season.

Rangers manager Cifuentes stated at his post-match press conference: “I’m really unhappy, especially with myself. I didn’t properly prepare my team for the type of game I expected. We did not do well. I was quite dissatisfied with the outcome and the game. A truly terrible game. We tried all week to encourage the lads to understand that it was a really difficult game, possibly the most challenging of the season. It appeared that Sheffield Wednesday were playing for their lives. Unfortunately, I was unable to persuade my players that today required this level of energy.”
