Former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has told The Transfer Tavern in an exclusive interview that Dejphon Chansiri has no choice but to take full responsibility following the Owls’ relegation from the Championship.
Despite giving it everything in their 3-3 draw with Derby County on the Championship’s final weekend, Wednesday were relegated to League One, finishing rock bottom in the table.
Since then, owner and chairman Chansiri has come out and told supporters that this disastrous season falls on him. And Palmer thinks it is only right, believing the buck stops with the businessman.
Can Moore take Wednesday straight back up?
Speaking exclusively to TT about Wednesday’s relegation and Chansiri’s role in it, the retired midfielder said:
“People will say they were dealt a blow with the 12 points [deduction], but the 12 points got reduced to six points. I don’t think that’s an excuse.
“They just weren’t good enough, and the chairman has to take full responsibility. And I think he has done that, but it’s alright saying he takes full responsibility, you know, [but] what’s going to happen going forward?”
What Wednesday are going to do going forward is certainly an intriguing topic.
The Yorkshire club currently have a whole host of players who are set to become free agents this summer, which brings nothing but uncertainty at a very inconvenient time.
