Many Sheffield Wednesday fans are reacting to the latest comments from Dejphon Chansiri around midfielder Liam Shaw and his future at the club.
Shaw has started to emerge into the senior squad this season and has featured 13 times in the Championship (WhoScored). Journalist Dom Howson posted a tweet which linked to some answers from the owner on this situation and he said: “We tried to extend his contract but the agent asked to wait and wait. We knew something was wrong and it’s normal in football. When a player tries to be good, then they already try to find another club.”
With the club in a relegation battle and six points from safety (SofaScore), the last thing you want to hear is players seeking to depart. This is even more worrying when it is an emerging academy star as they can often resonate with the fan base and be championed as ‘one of our own‘.
No matter what Chansiri thinks, this situation should have taught him a lesson to make sure that he doesn’t run down contracts and lose key or emerging players in the future.
Here is how some Wednesday fans reacted to the news:
“Loves the old blame game, don’t think I’ve ever heard him take responsibility for anything”
“Had to put a negative on a very positive press conference didn’t he. Can’t help himself old DC.”
“Always someone to blame. It’s boring now”
“I’ve said it all along, Shaw’s agent playing both clubs off against each other looking for the best deal.”
“Ask him why the kids that are playing in the first team are only offered a grand. They can make more playing in league 1 so they’re not going to stay are they.”
“It’s not about the fans talking about him it should be done by the coaches. Players of potential should never be allowed into there last year. It’s the club who’s wrong not agents”
“You can say that about any player. Has he produced the goods in the first team? Does it save you a transfer fee? How does long does he get to prove his ability? You’ve paid Premiership youngsters a first team wage? Why not our own?”
