Carlton Palmer believes that Dejphon Chansiri is unlikely to sell Sheffield Wednesday despite ongoing pressure.
It’s been a disastrous time for the South Yorkshire club with the Owls spending much of the last few seasons struggling in the league and drowning in financial issues.
All of that came to a head this term with Wednesday suffering relegation to League One – a fate that was handed to them as a result of a six-point deduction that they were slapped with at the start of the season.
Darren Moore now faces the unenviable task of preparing his side for a promotion charge in the third tier, but may have to do so with a brand new squad with a chunk of the current players out of contract.
But while Palmer believes that Chansiri is the man who should take the heat, he believes that there’s nothing that will stop him from sticking around if he wants to.
Speaking to Football Fancast, Palmer said: “He’s the money man, so you can’t tell the money man to step down.
“He either steps down because he wants to or he sells the club because he wants to, but he’s not going to do anything they’re telling him to do.
“Bottom line is he’s the money man; he puts the money into the club. The only thing I‘d say to the chairman is look where we are now. We are in League One.
“For me, it’s quite simple. He knows nothing about football; he knows nothing about the running of a football club.”

Sheffield Wednesday are in a real mess at the moment.
Problems both on and off the pitch have proved to be catastrophic for the club as they gear up to try and get themselves sorted in the months ahead.
Life in League One could be troublesome for them as they look to rebuild Darren Moore’s squad – after all, the third tier is no easy division to get out.
To say that Dejphon Chansiri is an unpopular man in Sheffield is an understatement, but given that it’s his club there’s not a huge amount that pressure groups can do.
