Sheffield Wednesday take action concerning 50-year-old potential Tony Pulis replacement



Sheffield Wednesday have spoken to Paco Jemez about becoming their next permanent manager, according to journalist Alan Nixon

Tony Pulis was sacked after just 45 days in charge of the Owls late last month and the search for his replacement is ongoing.

Reports on the weekend (The Sun (3rd January, page 57)) indicated that Jemez was one of the names on Wednesday’s shortlist, which is thought to be made up of relatively unknown foreign coaches.

It seems the Spaniard is someone that the Yorkshire club are seriously considering as Nixon has confirmed that the Owls have spoken to the Spaniard about becoming Pulis’ full-time replacement.

Jemez has been jobless since his second spell at Rayo Vallecano, the club with which he has spent the majority of his managerial career, came to an end in August.

Outside a four-year stint with Vallecano between 2012 and 2016, the 50-year-old time as a coach has been mostly made up of short-term spells – which is unlikely to convince the Hillsborough faithful that he’s the right man to take the club forward.

Paul Cook, Rene Weiler and Thorsten Fink are among the other names to have been linked with taking charge of the Owls recently.

Can you name each of these 17 ex-Sheffield Wednesday players just by looking at these 3 clues?

Signed in 2015, scored nine league goals, left in 2019.

The Verdict

It seems that Jemez is someone that Wednesday are seriously interested in as Nixon has confirmed they’ve been in contact with him over taking charge.

You can understand why, with Pulis and Garry Monk not working out, Dejphon Chansiri is looking overseas for a new manager but that certainly brings an element of risk.

With Wednesday facing a battle for survival, you’d have to question whether now is the right time to roll the dice.
