Carlton Palmer rendered a decision about ‘fantastic’ Danny Rohl at Sheffield Wednesday

Carlton Palmer has rendered a decision regarding Danny Rohl’s future at Sheffield Wednesday.

In the eyes of Sheffield Wednesday, it has been yet another demanding week.

After a run of three straight victories—the Owls’ most recent victory came against Bristol City 2-1—the feel-good factor is strong right now.

And with a victory over their South Yorkshire rivals to tie them on points with QPR and Stoke City up ahead, Rohl sees his team go to Rotherham United this afternoon.

But this week has also seen rumours of apparent Championship interest in Rohl surface, though no clubs have been named.

Carlton Palmer expects tough task to keep Danny Rohl at Sheffield Wednesday

There’s a growing consensus that Wednesday will probably lose Rohl if they lose this season.

The 34-year-old doesn’t deserve to be managing in the third division of English football after demonstrating his class in the Championship.

Additionally, former Wednesday midfielder Palmer has spoken on Rohl’s future at Hillsborough in an interview with Football League World, saying:

“I have to tell you, Danny Rohl has done an amazing job at Sheffield Wednesday.

“To turn around the confidence and the results in the way that he has, to give Sheffield Wednesday a chance to stay up, and Sheffield Wednesday are the team in form if you look at the teams at the bottom of the Championship right now.”

Palmer also mentioned that the Owls might make a run at the Premier League if owner Dejphon Chansiri supports Rohl in the summer and Wednesday stays in the Championship.

Palmer predicted that Sheffield Wednesday would do all of their effort to keep Danny Rohl at the football team if he were to attain that position. If not, they would have to support him.

“They might be back in the Premier League the next season if they support him.”

A pivotal summer on the horizon for Sheffield Wednesday

Whether the Owls beat promotion or not, and whether Rohl stays or not, the summer ahead is a crucial one for Sheffield Wednesday.

It looks like a long overdue clearing of the playing squad will take place, and whoever’s in charge will hopefully usher in a younger generation of Wednesday players.

And although this current set of players is currently providing the goods, and whilst several of them should be kept on, Chansiri will surely be keen to clear what has long been reported to be a hefty wage bill at the club.

And it’s a good excuse to bring in some younger players and if Rohl’s the man to oversee that, then it could be a very promising 2023/24 season for the Owls.

Next time round, if the Owls are a Championship club, then simply beating the drop comfortably would be a huge success.

But challenging for promotion like Palmer says seems like a way off yet.

Stranger things have certainly happened in football and especially in the Championship, and there’s nothing wrong with dreaming big.

And Palmer makes one good point; if Rohl stays then he needs to be backed and convinced about the long-term ambitions of the club, as he’ll no doubt have suitors elsewhere.
