‘Glad we saw the back of you’ – Many Sheffield Wednesday fans react to Erik Alonso message ahead of crucial Derby clash

Published

Prospective Derby County owner Erik Alonso has taken to Twitter to send a message of encouragement to Rams fans after Rotherham United’s draw last night, which has caused a stir among many Sheffield Wednesday supporters.

The Millers played their final game in hand on Tuesday evening and were held to a 0-0 draw against Luton Town, meaning Derby’s future is still in their own hands.

As long as the Rams beat Wednesday at Pride Park on Saturday, they will avoid relegation to League One, however, should the Owls win and Rotherham slip up, it will be them that stays up.

That fact is not lost on Alonso, who agreed a takeover deal with current owner Mel Morris earlier this year.

The Spaniard took to Twitter to send a message to fans after the Rotherham v Luton draw was confirmed.

Alonso’s prospective takeover is still awaiting EFL approval but it was confirmed by The Athletic recently that he does not have a get-out clause should the East Midlands club get relegated on Saturday.

The clash with the Owls may have another dimension for the Spaniard, who used to be an advisor to Wednesday owner Dejphon Chansiri before leaving in dramatic circumstances earlier this season.
