Danny Röhl extends Owls contract

24 May 2024

We are delighted to announce that Danny Röhl has signed an extended long-term contract with Wednesday.

The German manager masterminded a memorable route to Championship safety after joining the Owls in October of last season.

Having steadied the ship in the months that ensued, Röhl oversaw four wins and two draws in the last six games to secure second tier survival.

The Owls ended 2023/24 in 20th place and second in the Championship form table.


Röhl has now put pen to paper on a new contract at Hillsborough ahead of the 2024/25 season.

Owls chairman Dejphon Chansiri said: “I am delighted that Danny will be continuing his managerial journey with our club.

“The impact he made when he joined was immediate and was the foundation for preserving our place in the Championship.

“He has forged a special relationship with our supporters in the short space of time he has been here and now this journey continues.

“The hard work preparing for next season is already underway, it was important to secure Danny’s services on a well-deserved new contract and I am delighted this is now in place.”


Röhl said: “I am delighted to extend my contract with Sheffield Wednesday. This is a fantastic club that has taken me to heart and I feel exactly the same way.

“It was never in my mind to be anywhere else but Hillsborough. I feel at home here, the fans have been incredible, they have shown myself and my staff nothing but kindness since the first day.

“I would like to thank the chairman for giving me this opportunity and now we are excited to look forward and can plan ahead together for the new season.

“The way we finished last season was amazing, so much hard work came to fruition but we do not stop here. We must continue to show the same effort levels and desire for the future, the chairman is ambitious, I am ambitious and our fantastic supporters are ambitious too.”
