“I’ve already heard” – Pundit makes Danny Rohl claim as Sunderland eye Sheffield Wednesday boss



Sheffield Wednesday are currently learning that Danny Röhl has solidified his status as one of the top-tier young coaches in the EFL. Coaches with that kind of reputation are bound to draw interest from higher levels of the league.

The Owls appeared poised to return to League One following their lone season back in the Championship when he arrived at Hillsborough.

After a start to the season that shocked everyone, Xisco Munoz was fired shortly after taking over for former manager Darren Moore.

Röhl’s introduction was a risky move.

The 34-year-old had never managed a team before; his sole coaching roles before moving to Yorkshire were as the German national team’s assistant manager and as a backroom staff member at Southampton and Bayern Munich.

Undoubtedly, the risk has paid off. With eight games remaining, Wednesday is just a win away from safety while still being in the bottom three.

Several teams, including Sunderland, have taken notice of him because of the things he has accomplished in his little time in the second division. They fired both Michael Beale and Tony Mowbray this season, meaning they will not have a manager for 2024–2025. In an almost certain development, Mike Dodds, the former assistant manager, will lose his post as interim head coach in the summer. Before the season ends, they might declare that they have chosen their next head coach, but the position won’t officially begin until after the current one ends. The Wednesday boss and an unidentified Belgian target are of interest to the Black Cats, as I have reported. Retired Owls midfielder Carlton Palmer shared his opinions about the attention the 34-year-old is getting.

On Danny Röhl’s connections to the Sunderland position, Carlton Palmer

Palmer told Football League World that he has been quite impressed with the German manager’s work and that, if given the right resources, he may leave before the start of the upcoming season. “I’ve stated this countless times, Danny Röhl has done a terrific job after coming into Wednesday,” Palmer said to FLW. He’ll probably keep them going. He has inspired the team, the players are playing for him, and I have a strong sense that he will continue them. I believed that they had passed away, and he did an excellent job.Danny Rohl
“Röhl has already discussed the necessary measures to advance the team, including the Hillsborough training facility, the dressing room, and other areas. I believe he and his backroom crew will be highly sought after if these measures are implemented but he isn’t provided with the resources to build the side the way he wants. “If they wish to keep him, the owner must support him, and I’ve already heard a few murmurs regarding that. Therefore, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Röhl continued Wednesday before moving on to other pastures.” Sheffield Wednesday has given James Collins, a teenage forward from Watford, a trial as they contemplate a move for him. Sunderland would be wise to recruit Danny Röhl. At least when it comes to the playing side, the Black Cats’ whole recruiting philosophy revolves around acquiring young, gifted players.While Mowbray was in charge, this frustrated him as he wanted to broaden their search to find some more seasoned players. However, Kyril Louis-Dreyfus and Kristjaan Speakman have steadfastly supported their methodology.Kyril Louis-Dreyfus

Although the season’s results have fallen short of pre-season projections, they are determined to maintain their vision for the organization’s management. That would logically point to Röhl or someone like as an obvious contender. He is a young, gifted coach who has demonstrated the ability to maximize his players’ potential. That’s what Sunderland needs, although the German coach might be concerned about the possible lack of control over moves.
