Sheffield Wednesday: Owls fans rage at Dejphon Chansiri’s interview with Dom Howson 

Sheffield Wednesday: Owls fans rage at Dejphon Chansiri’s interview with Dom Howson  - Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday owner Dejphon Chansiri gave an exclusive interview to Yorkshire Live and as expected plenty of supporters weighed in on his comments over social media. 

The Thai businessman has copped a fair amount of criticism from the Owls fan base since he bought the club in 2015, with many fans frustrated by actions on-and-off the pitch.

Currently Wednesday are 15th in the Championship table, joint with Reading on 48 points, 9 points clear from the drop zone, but the club are still waiting to find out whether or not they will face a devastating points deduction or worse. Garry Monk’s side are on a three-game skid, lately suffering an embarrassing 5-0 thrashing by Brentford in the English second tier (WhoScored).

The Owls could be hit with stiff sanctions after being charged by the English Football League for breaking spending regulations following the sale of the Hillsborough Stadium to the chairman during the 2017/2018 season (Yorkshire Post).

Speaking to the Yorkshire Post, Chansiri stated: “The situation is ongoing, which is all we are permitted to say for legal reasons. This is the same for the EFL. As a club, we have provided updates only when we have been allowed and that will continue to be the case.”

He added: “Of course, I understand our fans want to know the full situation and I feel sorry for them because we cannot give statements or information as the process proceeds.”

Predictably many Owls fans are raging at his statement, with one supporter remarking the interview was “borderline pointless.” Scroll through some of the angriest reactions we found on Twitter…
