Introducing: Slavisa Jokanovic as Sheffield Wednesday manager - Introducing

The pressure is thought to be building on Jos Luhukay as his methods at Sheffield Wednesday are not believed to be impressing many at the club.

Despite picking up their first victory in seven matches against Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night, many of the club’s supporters have become disillusioned with how much more the Dutchman can bring to Hillsborough.

The win against The Trotters may have bought Luhukay some extra time to turn things around, but with expectations from the owners that the Owls should be challenging for a playoff spot, it remains to be seen how long the manager will be kept around.

Especially as big names within the managerial circles start to come around as the axe starts to come down this season.

Slavisa Jokanovic recently entered the job market after being dismissed from Fulham following a poor start to life back in the Premier League and he was quickly replaced by Claudio Ranieri.

Although the Serbian manager did not fare too well in the top-flight, he does in fact have an excellent record in the Championship.

The former Chelsea midfielder guided Watford to a Premier League promotion during his short stay with the Hornets, before replicating the feat with Fulham last season.

He did not only secure promotion through the playoffs for the west London outfit, but when he was initially appointed, he secured their status in the Championship after being employed to keep them in England’s second tier.

And, that is what Dejphon Chansiri could look to do with an appointment of Jokanovic.

Although relegation is not a real threat to the Owls at the moment, given how tight the bottom of the Championship table is after 19 games and the financial situation the Hillsborough club find themselves in with regards to financial fair play regulations, it is not something the owners can look too far from.

Should Sheffield Wednesday decide to part with Luhukay at some point in the near future, Jokanovic could certainly be the man to turn things around for Chansiri’s club.
