Neil Thompson has confirmed that he’s heard nothing from Dejphon Chansiri about the vacant managerial vacancy.
Sheffield Wednesday are currently without a manager after taking the decision to sack Tony Pulis after just 10 games in charge of the club on Monday evening.
That means that the search is on for the Owls to find their third manager in just over three months.
Dejphon Chansiri will be the man leading the hunt for Pulis’s replacement, but according to Thompson, the only contact he’s had with the chief has been about ensuring that the players are ready for the fixtures ahead.
Asked about what the Chansiri wants from him, Thompson told Yorkshire Live: “It’s been simple to concentrate on the games. All I’ve been told is to prepare for the games.
“The focus has been on the players in preparing them for the games and getting them rested up and putting in a bit of tactical stuff and getting them in the right state of mind and the lads are really digging. I have put a training programme out for next week and we will deliver that as we see fit (if I am in charge).
“Being out of the bottom three will give everyone a lift and I am pleased for everyone at the club and the supporters.”
The big festive Sheffield Wednesday quiz: Can you get 20/20?
It’s certainly an interesting time to be a Sheffield Wednesday fan.
The Owls are enduring a very difficult season -something which is summed up by the search for a third manager of the campaign so far.
Things need to improve for the club, and that means that Dejphon Chansiri must move quickly if he’s to rescue the club.
