Ex-West Brom boss Megson ready for management return: Good to see Sheffield Wednesday draw with Hull

Gary Megson is ready to jump back into management after his spell as caretaker manager with West Brom.

Megson went to Hillsborough on Saturday to watch Sheffield Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Hull City, who parted ways with Leonid Slutsky after the match.

“I enjoyed both games (as interim Albion boss)," Megson told The Ref Show. “It's whetted my appetite.

“I think I've got a lot to offer a football club, so I'm going back and watching games.

Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United and Barnsley are all very local – I know people at those clubs so I'll go and watch some games.

“I saw one at the weekend, it was an entertaining game. I'm going just to keep my hand in."

Megson is a Wednesday supporter, and has previously played for and managed the club.

“I didn't go the other day because I'm a supporter, I went the other day because I would like to get back into football and I want to know what's going on," he explained.

“You slip back into it pretty quickly, the talk in the dressing room stays the same.

“The bit you do lose is talking about players, what's he like, and that's because you're not going out to games."
