Former Owls boss Paul Sturrock made a tearful farewell to Wednesday fans on BBC Radio Sheffield on Monday night as he took calls from fans regarding his shock sacking almost two months ago.
Sturrock was invited on the show to clear the air over his departure from Hillsborough almost two months ago - and also questioned chairman Dave Allen's theory of attractive football over results.
Sturrock told BBC Radio Sheffield: 'I've never had a chairman dictate to me how the football should be played. You want to get results first and foremost no matter how you do it and the icing on the cake would be the attractive football.'
Dozens of Wednesday fans called the show and many mor sent messages to the Owls boss to thank him for his time in charge of the Owls and wish him well for the future - and Sturrock returned the compliment by insisting the Owls fnas must stick with their team.
He continued: 'The football club would be even worse financially if they didn't have 20,000 fans turning out week in week out to support them and the fans need to continue supporting the team. They shouldn't be venting their frustration on the pitch, the players need the support.'
During the interview Sturrock also questioned his former chairman's quotes that the Owls are within the top 10 clubs in the Championship wage-wise. The former Plymouth manager said he personally rang round all manager's in the league and worked out the Owls were 16th in the wage structure.
Sturrock finished off by thanking the Owls fans with a tearful goodbye and revealed he is set to return to management as soon as possible - and will be willing to return to the first club that shows an interest him.
Vital Sheffield Wednesday wishes Sturrock the best of luck for the future - and hopes that his wife and son continue to come along to matches in the Owls Kop - ala Queens Park Rangers last week!
