Ex-Manchester United Man Joins Sheffield Wednesday”

Sascha Lense, the new performance manager of Sheffield Wednesday, has extensive experience having worked for Dynamo Dresden, Schalke, RB Leipzig, and Manchester United.

Since coming over as Sheffield Wednesday manager, Danny Röhl has appointed his first backroom staff member. Sascha Lense, a former coach of Dynamo Dresden, has joined the Owls as their new performance manager.

Lense was present at Röhl’s revealing news conference on Friday. With a plethora of expertise, Lense has worked at Dresden (2), Schalke, RB Leipzig, and Manchester United. Benjamin Ehresmann, a former head scout for RB Leipzig, was also at Hillsborough last week, though the club has not yet formally verified his presence.

Former midfielder Lense played for FSV Frankfurt, FSV Zwickau, Dynamo Dresden, and SV Darmstadt 98 in the 2.Bundesliga, amassing over 100 games. This afternoon, he and Röhl started working with Wednesday’s team at Middlewood Road.

When the Owls and Watford square off at Vicarage Road on Saturday, Röhl will be taking over as manager for the first time. The Owls are seven points outside of safety at the bottom of the Championship standings.

“When you are an assistant and work with some great coaches like Ralf Rangnick, Ralph Hassenhuttl and Hansi Flick you can take something from all of them and now it’s the time to be a manager and decide things on the pitch,” Röhl said.
