Jordan Rhodes is still at the club, but he had a disappointing campaign as he only managed three goals in the division last term, per Transfermarkt. Garry Monk has been speaking before the Owls’ first game of the 2020/21 Championship against Cardiff City and has provided an update on the role of the ex-Middlesbrough striker in the upcoming campaign.
Dom Howson tweeted an article in which Monk speaks about Rhodes as the Wednesday manager said: “I think Jordan has had periods where he has performed well and he has had periods where he has not performed so well. We know Jordan can do it consistently.
“We all know that and that is what we have been going through since we have come back in. I’ve had really good chats with Jordan and he is going to play his part this season. There is no doubt about it.”
This highlights that Monk has some faith in Rhodes and the striker himself may be happy to hear these comments. What he must do now, however, is repay the favour and produce more goals for Wednesday whenever he is picked.
Here is what these Owls fans said following Monk’s comments:

Bet it gave his confidence the world of good playing 2 midfielders in his place 🤣🤣🤣

Worth noting how many of those appearances have been 5 minutes at the end of games.

Perhaps play him from the start for a dozen games and see how well he does. 5 and 10 minute appearances not going to work.

Interesting line here:
“My job is to work with the players that are here and do my best for them.
