Laws Commits To Owls Future

Laws Commits To Owls Future

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has played down talk of a switch to Championship rivals Burnley - by insisting he wants to become the Owls' longest serving manager in the last decade.

Laws, who only recently celebrated his one-year stay at S6 since taking the reins from Paul Sturrock, was subject of an approach from the Clarets earlier this week following the departure of Steve Cotterill.

But Wednesday rejected the approach, blasting the Turf Moor club for making the approach public after Wednesday 'played ball' following their approach for Cotterill last season.

And Laws insists that he's in the Wednesday hot seat for the long run, as he draws a line under the approach from Burnley.

'I'm not a fly-by-night who jumps from one ship to another,' he told the Sheffield Star.

'When I take a job I am looking for longevity. Obviously, in football that's sometimes not possible.

'I could have jumped ship at any time when I was at Scunthorpe, but I stayed for 10 years. If I can become the longest-serving Sheffield Wednesday manager in 10 years, that would be a great achievement.'

And the Owls supremo inists that the approach will only be used as a bost to him and his squad in the coming weeks, as a compliment to the way the Owls have been performing of late.

He continued: 'Obviously it gives you a boost when somebody outside Sheffield recognises what you have done and what you are doing, and pursues you. But now we move forward.'

Very good news, the only thing that worries me is that he only has to stick around for another 6 months to be are longest serving manager in the last ten years.

Why would someone swap Sheff Wednesday for Burnley, surely there is greater prospects staying where he is?
