According to Sky Sports, former Mag Sol Campbell has emerged as a ‘serious contender’ for the vacant Sheffield Wednesday job.
This comes after Garry Monk – the man who replaced Steve Bruce last year – was sacked at Hillsborough on Monday night, with the Owls sat second bottom of the Championship on just six points after 11 games.
While Campbell is one of the favourites, Sky Sports report that another contender for the job is Phil Neville, England Women manager, with former Wigan boss Paul Cook and ex-Stoke City man Tony Pulis also in the running.
Campbell endured a forgettable spell at St James’ Park across 2010/11, playing just eight times for the club following a move from Arsenal.
Should he get the job at Sheffield Wednesday it would be by far his biggest job in football yet and a big chance for the 46-year-old to prove his worth, with him recently managing in the EFL at Southend and Macclesfield.
This comes a few days on from Sheffield Wednesday owner Dejphon Chansiri slamming Steve Bruce for the nature of his move to Newcastle United, saying he ‘lied’ to him a few days before his appointment and was lucky to get the Owls job in the first place!
Let’s hope things pan out better than they did at Newcastle United should he make the move to South Yorkshire!
