Earlier in the week, it was reported that ‘several’ Wednesday players were considering handing in their two-week notice over the issue and according to Howson, in an article for Yorkshire Live, The Professional Footballers’ Association are working closely with the club and its players over the issue.
These aren’t the first reports of players being unpaid at Sheffield Wednesday, this has been a long-running saga for the club, with the Owls struggling both on and off the pitch this season and relegated to League One.
Fans of Sheffield Wednesday have been reacting to the club’s latest news on Twitter…
“Come on Chansiri, tell us the truth”
“Is this the beginning of the end of our club?”
“Car crash unveiling in front of our eyes”
“Beyond a joke”
You can’t help but worry for Sheffield Wednesday, whose problems don’t seem to be going away. We’ve lost too many football clubs from the EFL in the last few years, with Bury and Macclesfield expelled from the Football League and with the pandemic, many were worried about losing a few more. Hopefully, Sheffield Wednesday will recover from this but at the minute it appears to be bad news after bad news for supporters of the club and fans will be hoping that if there is an upturn in fortunes, it comes fast.
One thing is for certain though. the EFL has to start doing more to help football clubs.
