Chansiri Statement To Owls Fans

Chansiri Statement To Owls Fans

Wednesday chairman and owner Dejphon Chansiri has issued a statement to fans and a promise that 'we go again!`

Chansiri Statement from swfc.co.uk -

I woke up this morning with the same heavy heart as you all. To lose such a game on penalties is indescribable unless you have experienced that feeling. Well, now we all have and it hurts probably like nothing else in the football world.

But this is the sport we are in, where the margins are so fine. It is a cruel way to lose a play-off of this magnitude but I offer my congratulations to Huddersfield Town and wish them every success in the final.

As your chairman I lead from the top and I am sorry for you, our incredible supporters, that we could not continue the journey this season to the destination we all yearn to be. But be assured that events such as last night make me all the more determined to return our lovely club to the top table of English football.

There is a saying in life that to truly appreciate the highs, you must feel the lows, and right now I completely understand that, like me, you are crestfallen. But that is because we care. The Sheffield Wednesday family is unique and when we are down, we help each other up. And that is what we will do.

Immediately after the game last night, I had many people approach me to just shake my hand and say thank you for the progress our club has made. But the privilege is mine and I say thank you in return for the amazing way in which you have embraced myself, my family and my friends into your club and your culture and above all, for the way you have backed the team all season once more.

When the wounds have healed we must use the scars to regroup, move on and take positive strides forward. Some things in football are never certain but one thing I can guarantee is that I will continue to do everything possible and in my power to help us all succeed. We will analyse every area of the business and improve it to ensure we are prepared for the next challenge ahead.

I also wish to thank everyone involved at our club from top to bottom for their diligent and tireless day to day work on and off the pitch. My message to you all is the same - together we will be back because football is now in my blood and Sheffield Wednesday is in my heart.

I have to say Chansiri has done everything he can to make Sheffield Wednesday a footballing power again. Scepticism was around when he first took over the club but the man has been honest to his word. The only word he wasn't true to was we would be in the Premier League within two seasons. Well he has tried his hardest and nobody can take that away from him. Thank you Mr Chansiri..... Your honesty is what the Sheffield Wednesday family love.
