Sheffield Wednesday chairman Dejphon Chansiri has praised the club’s supporters and issued a positive message for the future after a tough campaign for the Owls.
After successive top six finishes under Carlos Carvalhal, everyone connected with Wednesday expected another promotion push.
However, it didn’t materialise for various reasons with a long injury list certainly not helping the side this season.
Carvalhal has since been replaced by Jos Luhukay and the Yorkshire side have ended the season well, offering some hope for the future, including a 5-1 thrashing of Norwich City on the final day yesterday.
And, Chansiri issued a statement on the club website talking about the positive aspects of this season, focusing on the young players coming through as well as hoping for another promotion push next year.
“We now look forward to a summer of preparation to ensure we try to challenge at the top part of the table next season.”
Understandably, fans were pleased with the honest interaction from their chairman and here’s how they reacted to his comments…
Proper chairman, not like them two at lane.
