Sheffield Wednesday managerial target reveals stance on future

Tony Pulis has revealed that he has had job offers since leaving Middlesbrough but is waiting for the “right opportunity” before he returns to management.

Pulis left the Riverside in the summer after his Boro side narrowly missed out on qualifying for the play-offs in the 2018/19 campaign.

According to The Sun, Sheffield Wednesday are considering making a move for the Welshman if the poor run of form continues under caretaker manager Lee Bullen.

The 61-year-old is understood to have not been keen on taking over at Hillsborough when Steve Bruce left in the summer.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Pulis indicated that he had received interest from a number of clubs but that he was going to be selective over his next job.

He said: “It’s the first break I’ve had for a while and I’ve enjoyed it. 

“You do miss it, but I won’t be diving straight back in.

“I had an offer to go and manage in China shortly after I left Boro but that was far too quick for me to get back in. I’ve been asked if I’d be interested in taking over national teams. 

“I’ve also had one or two approaches in the Championship but I felt they were too soon. Middlesbrough took a lot out of me, it was enjoyable but draining. It needs to be the right opportunity.”

Wednesday have also been linked to Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley but the 40-year-old coach has denied having talks with the Championship club.

Championship Picks

The Verdict

These comments are interesting given that the Welshman is thought to have not been interested in the role at Wednesday earlier in the summer.

If that is true, you would think he may still not view the Yorkshire club as the “right opportunity”.

However, he may have seen the joy that Bullen has had at times this season and believe that the Owls have a squad that he could be successful with.

Pulis has nearly 250 Championship games under his belt and given his experience you feel he would be a safe pair of hands, however, it seems like more of a conservative move than if the club went for the young and exciting Cowley.
