Ex-Charlton boss lands Championship job

Former Charlton manager Chris Powell has been appointed as Danny Rohl’s deputy manager at Sheffield Wednesday.

Rohl, 34, was hired as the Owls’ new manager last week after Xisco Munoz was fired.

Powell, who turned down the chance to return to The Valley on an interim basis when Dean Holden was fired, has been unemployed since leaving Tottenham’s academy system in August.



The former England coach coached Charlton for 161 games before being fired by Roland Duchatelet in March 2014.

Powell has previously managed Southend United and Huddersfield Town.

“I’m so glad Chris is here; he understands football, and I’m excited to work with him,” Rohl told the club’s website.

“We met while working for our respective national teams.” It was an instant nice feeling, and I’m experiencing fantastic energy.

“We discussed bringing in some experienced folks. He understands the players, has a long career, and has played at the highest level.”
