What are the odds that this is in fact nothing more than a publicity stunt that amounts to nothing? Still, no reason for us not to post a picture of Sybil Danning in her heyday.
The new owner of League One Sheffield Wednesday could be former Playboy cover star Sybil Danning.
Current chairman Milan Mandaric has confirmed that he would be willing to let the club go should the right offer come along from someone capable of taking the team forward.
Austrian-born Danning and her husband Horst Lasse believe they are the people capable of doing just that, and are in talks over an official takeover bid.
‘It is one of the most famous names in English football and, even though it has suffered in the last few years, we believe we can give it the energy needed to get to the Premier League,’ she said.
‘We have been studying this for the past month and if negotiations go well we hope to conclude an agreement to buy the club.’
Sheffield Wednesday’s star has faded of late, like many other former Premier League participants they have fallen on hard times and drifted into League One. Clearly a club the size of the Owls shouldn’t be in the third tier and perhaps investors are hoping that with the right investment the club could ‘do a Norwich’ and gain successive promotions.
Is Sybil Danning the woman to help that dream come true? Seems unlikely though she, and her husband, did save a German Ice Hockey club from bankruptcy and perhaps they can help the Hillsborough side back into the big time.
