‘The club is a shambles’ – Many Sheffield Wednesday fans react to fresh twist in manager hunt

Published

on

Paul Cook has reportedly not been offered the Sheffield Wednesday job despite recent reports, which has drawn a frustrated reaction from many Owls fans. 

Tony Pulis was sacked in December and The Athletic reported yesterday that Cook had rejected an offer to become his replacement.

The report suggested the former Wigan boss had been interviewed but talks had broken down because he was offered a short-term contract until the end of the season.

According to Yorkshire Live, however, that is not the case and Cook has not been offered the job, nor has he been interviewed by the Owls.

It is understood that the 53-year-old coach has applied twice for the role since Pulis’ sacking but while talks have been held with the club hierarchy things have gone no further.

Cook is available after leaving Wigan in the summer and has an excellent record in the EFL, having won promotion with the Latics, Chesterfield, and Portsmouth.

He also has experience of successfully leading teams to Championship survival, something that would be useful given Wednesday are in a relegation scrap at the moment.
