The possibility of Paul Cook becoming the next Wednesday boss remains unclear after an interview on national radio.
Speaking on TalkSport2, Cook said he had held discussions with the club about the manager’s job, following the departure of Tony Pulis after just 46 days in charge, but that talks were not ongoing, at present.
The former Wigan manager said: “Sheffield Wednesday is a fantastic opportunity for anyone, but people have to understand about modern day football, if you want to manage one of these good clubs you have to be able to manage. If you’re not allowed to manage, then you’re an employee and not a manager.
“I certainly wish Sheffield Wednesday every success, in whichever direction they decide to go.”
Cook, who said he had been overwhelmed by the support from Wednesday fans on social media for him to get the job, also talked about how he had applied for the position before Pulis was appointed but did not receive a reply from the club.
