When I looked on Wiki records yesterday, there wasn’t even a record for Dejphon Chansiri , however two entries appeared today telling very little about him. When I first searched on his name, it brought up the company his family own, the Thai Union Frozen Group. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dejphon_Chansiri
The Thai Union Frozen Group has a turnover of 3.6 billion USA dollars and a work force of 32,000 around the world. The company owns “John West”.
Remember Chansiri is the lead member of a consortium so the combined wealth of the group could be much more. This is the worth of the Chansiri family.
I suspected that Hafiz Mammadov wasn’t what he was made out to be from day one, however this time I believe that Dejphon Chansiri is the Full Monty who can take Wednesday back into the Premier division.
Dejphon Chansiri, his associates and family could be worth a considerable amount of money, your guess is as good as anybody’s, but it is their business experience and leverage they could get at the banks that is the most important asset. But once Wednesday get promoted into the Premier division what does that matter, when the least a Premier division club will get from SKY is £100 million.
At the end of the day are we going to know the true worth of these mega rich people, with tax avoidance and offshore locations like the Cayman islands, they are going to want to keep their tax liabilities to a minimum unless they want the public to know how rich they are for their own ego.
Hopefully, Wednesday will learn from the Dave Richards era and never put the club into such a dire financial position again, even though they are now awash with money.
I can’t imagine the new owners of Sheffield Wednesday F.C. throwing money at the club, but money put in the right area’s and the club could be in the top six of the Premier division within the next 10 years.
As far as I am concerned Wednesday need to move away from Hillsborough and find a more suitable location, if the club wants to compete with the big boys again. I really hope the new owners can see through the mist and make this happen. A football club today is much more than what is happening on the pitch and development ground is required around the stadium as well as a larger ground capacity, with better communication links with the M1. I would go for a suitable area in the East end of Sheffield.
I really can’t imagine Milan Mandaric having the wool pulled over his eyes again and this time Wednesday are on a roll. Milan has worked really hard during his time and has taken Wednesday as far as he can.
All the best
