Wednesday Hope To Be Luhukay

Wednesday Hope To Be Luhukay

Sheffield Wednesday this evening announced Jos Luhukay as the manager following the departure of Carlos Carvalhal.

The Dutchman arrives at Hillsborough with great experience under his belt in the German Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 and the 54 year old is tagged as the 'Bundesliga promotion expert' as almost every side managed below their top flight achieved promotion. Nobody else boasts a better track record than him apparently.

He takes charge officially on Monday January 8 and speaking to the Official Site he explained.

'In Germany I have turned down offers from the Bundesliga and Second Bundesliga in recent months because I have been looking for an entirely new challenge. Sheffield Wednesday is exactly the exciting challenge for which I have been waiting. We shall now work together with all the staff at the club and the fans, to stabilise the team, and following that, improve it step by step with discipline, effort, commitment and creativity to take it up.'

Chairman Dejphon Chansiri added about the appointment.

'I am delighted to welcome Jos to Hillsborough. Following an extensive search for the right candidate to take us forward, I am thoroughly convinced Jos is that man. His track record and experience suggested he was the perfect fit and once I spoke with him, there was no doubt in my mind that Jos would become our new manager. I wish him all the very best and every success.'

Luhukay counts Augsburg, Hertha Berlin and Stuttgart as former clubs.
