Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday could be about to speak with Paul Lambert regarding their managerial vacancy, according to HITC Sport.
The Owls have been minus a boss since Christmas Eve when they chose to sack Portuguese manager Carlos Carvalhal and former Wolves boss Lambert looks to be right at the top of the club’s shortlist.
Lee Bullen has been tasked with overseeing first-team affairs since Carvalhal’s departure and although he did manage to lead the team to a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Boxing Day, Wednesday have since lost their last two games without scoring a goal.
Yesterday’s home humiliation against Burton Albion looks to have been the final straw for Bullen’s tenure and the club’s owners appear to be ramping up their attempts to appoint a new boss.
Lambert has been out of work since leaving Wolves at the end of last season and the Scotsman is keen to get back into football management.
It has to be said that Paul Lambert would represent a solid, if somewhat unspectacular appointment for Sheffield Wednesday.
The 48-year-old didn’t really get a fair crack of the whip during his single season at Wolves and he will also feel he was harshly treated at Blackburn Rovers, where he worked within tight financial restraints and kept the club in the second tier.
Wednesday already boast a fantastic squad of players and his stern personality could be just the kick up the backside that the football club needs.
Sheffield Wednesday fans, would you welcome Lambert to the club? Let us know in the comments below!!!
