Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly targeting a move for former Bayern Munich man Thorsten Fink as their new manager according to The Star.
The Owls parted company with Tony Pulis not so long ago after a poor run of results. His dismissal certainly came as a surprise though, with the former Stoke City boss only being appointed as Sheffield Wednesday’s manager back in November.
Fink is the latest manager to be linked with the vacancy at Hillsborough, and he’ll be looking to find himself a new job, after most recently managing Japanese side Vissel Kobe.
He resigned from his role in charge of Vissel Kobe in September, and has also managed in Austria, Switzerland and Germany in the past.
Fink’s playing career was spent in Germany, and he made a name for himself with Bayern Munich in a seven-year spell with the club’s first-team squad.
Sheffield Wednesday are currently sat 22nd in the Championship table, and will be hoping they can pull themselves out of the relegation zone at the earliest of opportunities.
The Owls are currently three points adrift of safety, but did beat promotion-chasing Middlesbrough in their most recent match.
Sheffield Wednesday are set to return to action on New Year’s Day when they take on relegation-threatened rivals Derby County at Hillsborough.

I’m not sure this would be the right move.
Fink does have some reputable clubs on his managerial CV, but I’m not convinced that he would be the right fit for Sheffield Wednesday at this moment in time.
The Owls need someone that has experience in English football, as the Championship is well-known for being a tough league to compete in for a manager with little experience at this level.
I’m not doubting Fink’s capabilities as a manager, but I think there are better, and safer options out there for Sheffield Wednesday, as they look to appoint Tony Pulis’ successor.
