Sheffield Wednesday appoint Danny Rohl as new manager

Sheffield Wednesday have announced the appointment of Danny Rohl as their new manager. 

The 34-year-old steps into the spotlight at Hillsborough following the dismissal of Xisco Munoz, who was shown the exit door after a lacklustre start to the season.

Munoz oversaw eight defeats and two draws in his opening ten Championship matches. 

The dismal results spelt the end of Munoz’s brief stint with the Owls, as he left them bottom of the Championship table.

The arrival of Rohl brings with it a wealth of experience and a sterling reputation. 

Rohl’s professional journey has seen him serve as an assistant manager at Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig, Southampton and the German national team.

Rohl reportedly left a lasting impression on Owls owner Dejphon Chansiri during the managerial interview process, even before Munoz took the reins.

His path into coaching began in his early 20s when a premature end to his playing career due to injury prompted him to step into the role of a coach within Leipzig’s youth ranks. 

Rohl ventured into the Premier League as Ralph Hasenhuttl’s assistant manager at Southampton in 2018. He joined Bayern Munich a year later before moving into the national team set-up.

“It’s amazing to be here now,” Rohl said (via Wednesday’s official website). “It was a long process over the last seven days, but I had good conversations with the chairman. He was very open-minded about everything. 

“Now, I am looking forward to being part of this traditional club. It’s amazing. Even in the stadium, the first impression was amazing, and I’m looking forward to the first match.”

Wednesday will now aim to turn the tide and move out of the relegation zone under their new manager.
