Sheffield Wednesday have today announced the appointment of former Charlton CEO Katrien Meire, who has joined in a similar role at Hillsborough.
The Owls confirmed the news on their official Twitter account, and it’s safe to say there was quite the reaction from both Owls and Charlton fans, who were keen to get their thoughts across on what is looking like being a controversial appointment.
Meire had a turbulent time during her spell at the Valley, making some contoversial decisions during her tenure and drawing the fury of the Addicks fans on more than one occasion.
With Wednesday recently getting rid of manager Carlos Carvalhal, the fans would have been hoping for some more positive news than a boardroom appointment, and it’s safe to say that Wednesday fans are not happy with the news, not one bit.
We’ve taken a look at how the Owls fans have reacted to the news of Meire’s appointment, with some responses from Addicks fans thrown in for good measure…

Disgraceful, after all the problems at Charlton. Don't you do your homework? Another person who shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a football club.
