From David Ornstein's column in The Athletic this morning:
Vladimir Ivic approached to take over from Tony Pulis at Wednesday
Former Watford boss Vladimir Ivic was approached by Sheffield Wednesday over their managerial vacancy, Adam Leventhal can reveal. It’s understood an agent working on behalf of the club made an enquiry to representatives of the Serbian at the end of December — around the time that Tony Pulis was sacked after just 45 days in charge.
Ivic is known to be keen to get back into management, but it’s thought that the instability of the Hillsborough job may have contributed to him looking for opportunities elsewhere. He has remained with his family in Hertfordshire after his sacking by Watford on December 19, rather than returning to his home in Greece.
The 43-year-old is keen to find the right club after his time at Vicarage Road lasted just four months. He won nine of his 22 games in charge and left with Watford in the Championship play-off places. Sources close to Ivic say that alternative approaches have been made from clubs in England and the Middle East, but the right project hasn’t presented itself as yet.
