Speaking on BBC 5 live less than a week after being sacked from S6, Megson said: “Wednesday’s in great shape and I think they’ll get promoted this season.”
Being a Wednesday fan, he said it would be sweet to see us go up but disappointing that he would not be the man in charge.
However, he said that promotion would only be the start of the Owls revival , that we belong in the top half of the Premier League and reiterated that he would love to go back one day and finish the job at Hillsborough.
He said he learnt of his fate last Wednesday when he got a call from Milan Mandaric asking to meet him and that since his sacking he had received lots of calls from managers – including Danny Wilson – and good wishes from Wednesdayites.
When asked if he felt the club was in good hands, Megson said he could not comment on that.
With regard to taking the job under Milan Mandaric’s chairmanship, Megson said: “I didn’t join Wednesday to work for an individual.
“I knew what was there in terms of the size of the club and the fans and I didn’t want to get to the end of my career having not managed Wednesday.”
