Sheffield Wednesday owner Dejphon Chansiri has once again told the fans to buy him out if they want him to leave the club.

Whilst the Owls chief was liked by the fans after initially taking over, the past few years have been very tough. A series of mistakes in terms of the financial management and appointments at the club, has left Wednesday in a difficult position.
They head into 2021 in the relegation zone in the Championship, and they face a battle to avoid the drop to the third tier.
Therefore, there is a lot of unrest among the Owls fans, with Chansiri coming in for fierce criticism.
However, speaking to Yorkshire Live, the owner made it clear that he will sell to the fans if they came up with the funds.
“If you (the fans) want to buy me out, you buy me out. If you don’t want me, I don’t mind.”
Quiz: Did these 25 players make more or less than 100 Sheffield Wednesday appearances?
Obviously, it’s pretty unrealistic to expect that to happen given the wealth that would be needed to run a football club, so the support are increasingly annoyed that Chansiri says this.
Here we look at some of the comments from Twitter…
Why have the fans got to buy him out? Maybe there’s a credible businessman out there who actually knows what he’s doing

I don’t think thats true. He does care. But he’s right. If someone has the right money, he’ll sell.

The answer I’m looking for is “I understand and appreciate the fan’s frustrations. Let’s work together to try alleviate the issues.”
Instead we get this petulant drivel.
