Danny Rohl’s Sheffield Wednesday future becomes clearer after the latest Chansiri meeting

Sheffield Wednesday fans have now been given a major insight into the future of manager Danny Rohl.

Rohl is adored by Sheffield Wednesday fans after securing the club’s Championship status for another year following a 2-0 win at Sunderland last time out.

The English Football League’s youngest manager pulled off just one miracle in his first job in charge, with Sheffield Wednesday 13 points clear at one stage but finishing the season in 20th place and three points above the drop zone.

There are fears Rohl could leave this summer with Sunderland among the teams linked. But The Star now report that Rohl and owner Dejphon Chansiri have held initial positive talks over Rohl’s future at the club.

It has been widely reported that Rohl is under contract at Hillsborough until the end of the 2024/25 season when he takes over, although there has never been official confirmation.

Danny Rohl wants three things from Dejphon Chansiri at Sheffield Wednesday

Throughout the season, Rohl has delivered the same message regarding his future.

He echoed the same message after the Sunderland win, saying: “I think I’ve said that before in some interviews. What is important is to have a direction. I think I have an idea what that direction might be like. But just to get an idea, of course it’s not enough… We know this club has high potential when you see what it means to the people of the city.”

The ball was then in Chansiri’s court throughout. Rohl has previously hinted that he wants changes to some of the club’s facilities, and now The Star says Rohl wants some improvements to the club’s training ground in Middlewood, another addition to his backroom team and then some guarantees for the upcoming transfer window. summer.

The only thing Danny Rohl could get from Chansiri at Sheffield Wednesday

Chansiri surely knows this summer is his biggest at the club so far and his biggest chance for redemption among the supporters.

The fans just want to see Rohl happy and content at the club and for that to happen Rohl needs to be given the resources and facilities to get Sheffield Wednesday into a position where he can challenge in realistic promotion.

But whether or not Chansiri has the money to do so remains to be seen. Likewise, whether he has the money or not is irrelevant; he simply must find him somewhere or risk losing Rohl.

However, improvements to the training ground can be the difficult thing to achieve. The cost of which could snowball and become a real financial burden, while signing the players can be more of a guarantee as Chansiri will know they could sell some players in a year and recoup the money.

Another addition to the already large back team also seems plausible.

Rohl will know he won’t be welcoming the world to Hillsborough, at least not this summer, so patience is needed on his part too.

But the positive talks between Chansiri and Rohl are certainly the first step in rebuilding Sheffield Wednesday’s future.
