Sheffield Wednesday have recently announced that they have parted company with Garry Monk, after a poor run of results in the Championship.
The Owls are currently sat 23rd in the second-tier standings, and will be eager to push themselves further up the table at the earliest of opportunities.
But a run of just one win in their last six matches saw Sheffield Wednesday sack Monk from his role in charge of the first-team, which means they’re now searching for a new boss during the international break.
One player that Monk brought to the club during the summer transfer window was Izzy Brown, with the forward signing on loan from Premier League side Chelsea.
Brown has made seven appearances so far in the 2020/21 season, and he’ll be eager to continue to be involved as this year’s campaign progresses.
Tony Pulis and Paul Cook have emerged as the early favourites to take charge at Hillsborough in the near future, although it remains to be seen as to who is the frontrunner for the managerial vacancy.
Brown took to Twitter to thank Monk for his time with the club, both on and off the pitch, after his departure was announced.
I appreciate everything you done for me on & off the pitch. Thank you Gaffa💙 pic.twitter.com/597PydnzTQ

Sheffield Wednesday are set to return to action after the international break, when they take on Preston North End, in what is certain to be a tricky test for the Owls at Deepdale.

I think this is the right call from Sheffield Wednesday.
There is a very good squad there, and for one reason or another, Monk hasn’t been able to get the best out of it so far in this year’s league campaign.
Brown is one of the players that will be hoping he can make a good impression on the incoming new manager, as he’s a player that I think we’re yet to see the best of.
If he can find some consistency in his performances, then I think Sheffield Wednesday will have no trouble in avoiding relegation into League One this season.
