Jos Luhukay managed 347 days and 48 games in charge of Sheffield Wednesday but after 19 losses, the Dutchman was given his marching orders and an end was put to his tenure at Hillsborough.
He had success at some of his previous clubs but he couldn’t quite reach the same heights with the Owls and ultimately paid for it with his job.
The manager though has had no trouble landing several more jobs as a boss since being relieved of his duties with Wednesday – and here is how he has gotten on since leaving his role at the club.
Quiz: Have each of these 24 ex-Sheffield Wednesday academy players ever played in the Premier League?
After losing his role with the Owls back in 2018, he managed to find a new job by the April the year after. Trusted with affairs at FC St Pauli, he lasted longer with the German side than he did with Sheffield Wednesday but still had more losses than wins – and a worse points-per-match average than during his time in England too – and ended up leaving the side after a year there.
Now, he currently manages VVV-Venlo. He was given the job back in March but has struggled to pick up results again, with just five wins and 15 losses in 22 matches as boss of the side so far.
He’s still in the job there and will be hoping to turn things around at the side as quickly as possible – otherwise he may find himself on the hunt for yet another new club soon.
He’s spent less time there than at his last two sides – and deserves to be given a fair crack at the job to mould the team into his shape and to bring in his philosophies – but management is a results-based game and if he can’t start picking up wins on a more frequent basis, then he could find himself relieved of his duties again.
