Sheffield Wednesday have sacked Garry Monk after 14 months in charge.

Monk, who replaced Steve Bruce in September 2019, oversaw a total of 58 matches, 18 of which were wins.

His final game in charge was a goalless draw with Millwall on Saturday, a result which moved Sheff Wed off the foot of the Championship, with their 12-point deduction for breaching spending rules reduced to six points earlier in the week.

In a statement chairman Dejphon Chansiri said: “I feel the time is right to make a change and I wish Garry and his team all the best for the future.

“I would like to say thank you for the time and effort Garry and his staff have committed to Sheffield Wednesday.”

The Owls will now open up the search for their fourth permanent manager in just two years.

The job was Monk’s fifth in management since he first stepped into the dugout with Swansea six years ago. The 41-year-old spent 77 games in charge of the Swans, before dipping down into the Championship with Leeds, Middlesbrough, Birmingham City, then Sheffield Wednesday.

Wednesday were 3rd at Christmas last season, but a disappointing start to 2020 meant they eventually finished the pandemic-hit campaign down in 16th, 14 points adrift of the play-off places.

The club was then smacked with a 12-point deduction after they were found guilty of breaching the league’s profitability and sustainability rules. The reduction didn’t come into play until the current campaign, however if it had been enforced last season Wednesday would have been relegated.

It’s since been reduced to six points meaning Monk leaves the club 23rd in the table, two points from safety.
