The 41-year-old was informed Monday night despite seeing his team secure a goalless draw against Millwall on Saturday, which saw them rise to 23rd in the tournament.

A club statement said: «  Sheffield Wednesday has terminated the contracts of Technical Director Gary Monk and his staff with immediate effect.

Gary Monk was fired after just over a year as Sheffield Wednesday presidency

Monk joined Owls in September 2019 and has since overseen 58 matches, winning 18, drawing 15 and losing 25

Chairman, Digivon Chancery, told SWFC Share UK: I feel the time is right to make a change and I hope Gary and his team will have all the best in the future.

Hillsborough club’s 12-point deduction for breaking spending rules was cut to six on appeal last week.

This means that they now have six points after the weekend results and that Chairman Dejphon Chansiri threw a challenge to his team to keep playing.

It’s a big question, given the handicap they started and after the recent defeats by Luton, Rotherham and Wicombe

Many expected Chancery to take action after those results, but he was late and responded Wednesday with a win over Bournemouth and a draw with Millwall.

Monk had this season as well as an option for another season on his contract but was informed that he would be leaving early Monday evening.

Chansiri will now use the international hiatus to consider a substitute in Wednesday’s match against Preston North End on November 21

Former Wigan Athletic coach Paul Cook is known to be among the names under initial consideration
