Sheffield Wednesday: Fans react to Alex Miller tweet about Dejphon Chansiri

Sheffield Wednesday: Fans react to Alex Miller tweet about Dejphon Chansiri - Sheffield Wednesday News

Dejphon Chansiri has definitely had a rollercoaster of a journey since becoming the owner of Sheffield Wednesday in 2015, and a lot of the Owls fan base are reacting to a tweet by Alex Miller about the businessman.

The Sheffield Wednesday writer at The Star was discussing the current issues at Arsenal as recent events have meant the club are struggling financially and due to this 55 members of staff will become redundant.

How many career goals did David Hirst score for Wednesday?

Miller discussed this and compared it to what Chansiri has been doing at Hillsborough to help staff during this time, as he paid the remaining 20% of all furloughed staff. When discussing this, the journalist said, ‘Dejphon Chansiri deserves huge praise for the handling of his staff in this time.’

This is what has got a lot of the fan base talking as it hasn’t been all plain-sailing. Chansiri breached rules when the club sold their Hillsborough stadium to the owner to try to avoid breaking spending rules. This saw them receive misconduct charge from the EFL and the club now have a 12 point deduction at the start of the 2020/21 season.

Both these events highlight the good and bad things that have happened at the club whilst Chansiri has been owner, however what he has done in recent times with staff has been very commendable.

Here is what fans said following the tweet:
