Owls furious with Laws leak after Burnley approach

Sheffield Wednesday have been left furious after Burnley's unsuccessful approach for manager Brian Laws was leaked to the public.

Wednesday have refused managerless Burnley permission to speak with Laws as they seek a successor to Steve Cotterill.

Owls chief executive Kavan Walker said: 'We are disappointed that this approach for Brian Laws from Burnley has become public knowledge - because when we were contacted by the club we asked specifically that the information should be kept confidential.

'The way this has come out is particularly frustrating, because just over a year ago we made a similar approach to Burnley regarding Steve Cotterill.

'We were told then that our approach would be turned down and asked us to keep the information from reaching the public domain, which we clearly adhered to.'

Laws has recently turned the Owls' fortunes round, after six straight defeats at the start of the season had placed his own position in jeopardy.

Cotterill departed Turf Moor last week by mutual consent, citing his frustration in the transfer market as one of the main reasons.

Former Scunthorpe manager Laws has admitted to feeling flattered by Burnley's approach.

But Laws, who replaced Paul Sturrock at Hillsborough in November last year, also expressed his dismay at the current trend in English football where 17 managers have left their clubs already this season.

Laws told PA Sport: 'When another club want to speak to you it's obviously because they think you're doing something right, so in that respect Burnley's approach is flattering.

'It gives you confidence and is a nice feeling - because not so long ago we were struggling here.

'But I know what I'm doing is right. Sheffield Wednesday have said no to Burnley, so that's the end of it.

'I'm committed to this club and certainly don't see my future anywhere else at the moment.

'What does concern me, though, are the horrendous statistics on managers in the Football League.

'Burnley's approach for me means there has been yet another casualty and the fact Aidy Boothroyd is the longest-serving manager in the Championship with not even three years yet at Watford is just ridiculous.'

Laws, who steered the Owls to within four points of the play-offs last season after just one defeat in their final 13 league matches, came perilously close just several weeks ago to losing his own job at Hillsborough.

Following Wednesday's home defeat to Scunthorpe at the end of October, it was widely reported that Laws would have been sacked had his side lost to Blackpool at Hillsborough in the following match.
