Wednesday boss candidate has admitted he'd 'love' to manage Owls; has 'unfinished business'

The Plymouth Argyle manager Ryan Lowe admitted earlier this year that he would ‘love’ to manage Sheffield Wednesday and has ‘unfinished business’ at the club.

Lowe replaced Tony Pulis as the bookmakers’ favourite to succeed Garry Monk as Wednesday boss earlier.

It is unclear at this stage if contact has been made between the Owls and Plymouth, whom Lowe led to promotion to League One in his first season in charge last term.

But there would be interest from the 42-year-old’s side, given what he told The Star earlier this year.

“I’m still learning my trade but at some point in the future, I’d love to manage Sheffield Wednesday,” he said.

“In years to come who knows where football takes you? Especially football management. One day, you never know.

“I feel like I’ve got unfinished business there because of the way I left. I never got a chance to say a proper goodbye to the fans because I was there one minute and then I was being told I had to move on.

“I’d like to think one day I could manage the football club.”

Lowe was part of the Sheffield Wednesday side promoted as League One runners-up in 2011-12.

Signed from Bury by Gary Megson and sold to MK Dons by Dave Jones, the Liverpudlian scored nine goals in 30 games for the Owls.

And he has made an encouraging start to his managerial career, leading a troubled Bury side out of League Two before repeating the trick at Plymouth – who sit eighth in the division above.

Lowe’s achievements are made all the more impressive by the fact that he didn’t become a boss until January 2018.
