Röhl has emerged as a prominent name in national media discussions as a potential replacement for Michael Beale at Sunderland. However, recent reports suggest that the club might be deterred by the high compensation required to secure his services. Despite initial attempts by the German coach to downplay any links earlier this year, it’s reported that he is contracted until the summer of 2025 according to German media sources.

Gus Poyet, a revered figure among Sunderland fans due to his iconic past with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, previously managed the Black Cats from October 2013 to March 2015, overseeing 75 matches. The club intends to appoint a new manager this summer, with Mike Dodds currently serving as interim manager until the end of the season.

Poyet stated, via Casinoohneoasis, to Football League World: “The club needs to consider the direction they want to go in and then take that step.” Danny can work to move them forward if he adopts that mindset. Although he is an excellent coach, he faces challenges in keeping Sheffield Wednesday competitive.

Another figure linked to Sheffield Wednesday is former player and more recently Sheffield United manager, Paul Heckingbottom. Heckingbottom has been without a club since departing Bramall Lane in December.

When questioned about Heckingbottom’s suitability for the role, Poyet commented, “There is a fantastic pool of young talent at Sunderland, so it’s crucial to identify the right attributes and appoint a coach who aligns with that philosophy. An experienced coach can play a vital role in nurturing the young players and having someone who has achieved promotion can be beneficial, as they possess the knowledge of what it takes to succeed.”
