Exclusive: Palmer has his say on Moore’s Sheffield Wednesday future

Former Sheffield Wednesday striker Carlton Palmer believes the board’s influence and payment struggles will dictate Darren Moore’s future in charge of the Owls.

In March, Moore left his post at League One side Doncaster Rovers in a bid to help Wednesday stave off relegation from the Championship.

The former West Bromwich Albion chief was unable to keep the Owls in English football’s second tier, with their 3-3 draw with Derby County on the final day of the season resulting in them finishing bottom of the Championship standings.

Moore has remained at the helm but owner Dejphon Chansiri has struggled to pay players’ wages on time, resulting in some reportedly considering quitting the club.

Wednesday’s players were finally paid the wages that were previously left unpaid by the club’s owners earlier this week, according to journalist Alan Nixon.

Palmer, who spent five years at Hillsborough before returning for a loan spell later in his career, believes Moore’s success at the club comes down to how Chansiri runs the Owls.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “Some managers have their hands tied behind their back and if that’s the case it becomes very difficult. You have to be very careful if you take a job like that. I think Darren Moore is probably realising that when he didn’t before.

Can you name this obscure former Sheffield Wednesday player?

“Sheffield Wednesday is a massive club and I’m pleased that Darren is there because I thought he did a fantastic job at West Brom, where he was hard done by.

“He’s a good manager and he showed that at Doncaster. He got them into a play-off position. He must be seeing the reality of the situation he is in, which will dictate his future.”
