In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has criticised Dejphon Chansiri for causing friction in his relationship with ex-Owls manager Tony Pulis.
Pulis was sacked as Wednesday manager at the end of last December after just 10 games in charge.
In a statement on the club’s official website (via BBC), Chansiri stated that the Welshman was removed from the Hillsborough dugout because of poor results and “other issues” going on behind the scenes.
Palmer, however, is refusing to accept the notion that Pulis was the main culprit, suggesting that Chansiri had made promises to the 63-year-old that he did not keep.
The retired England international told FFC:
“Tony Pulis is a seasoned manager. If anybody could have turned their fortunes around, it would have been Tony and he didn’t last two minutes, and I think that’s because the chairman, reading between the lines, promised him money to spend in the transfer window and there were no funds available.”
Chansiri has since turned to Darren Moore, who has a mammoth task in trying to keep Wednesday in the Championship. While the Owls do have a game in hand, they still find themselves in a deep hole, currently 23rd in the table with 32 points on the board.
