Jon Newsome has said he hopes Darren Moore will be backed as much as possible at Sheffield Wednesday this summer, speaking exclusively to Football League World.
The Owls have had a very tough time of things in recent years and it’s all culminated with their relegation to Sky Bet League One for next season.
The rebuild job begins in earnest this summer, then, and Darren Moore will be overseeing it and taking a look at just where he feels he needs to add players.
That said, it’s quite likely that Sheffield Wednesday are going to have to box clever rather than spend big in the market and Newsome just hopes that the Owls back the manager as much as they can in this summer’s window.
Speaking to Football League World exclusively, he explained:
“I would like Darren Moore to be backed because I think he’s a very, very good manager.
“I think you‘d be far removed to walk past him to get somebody any better in the situation. He’s a really honest, genuine guy. I felt really, really sorry for him at the end of the season when he contracted COVID and he wasn’t able to go to games and I think that had to have an impact on the club and the players and what was happening.
“I’d like to see him given the opportunity to build a squad and get the club pushing for promotion. But as we know, that costs money, usually.”
There seems a belief that Darren Moore will be able to get Wednesday turned around but how long it’s going to take him remains to be seen.
It looks quite likely that they’re going to have to be frugal in the transfer window and with a host of players leaving we are set to see a very different Owls squad come August.
It’s a challenge Moore will relish, though, as the Wednesday reset begins.
