New owner Delphon Chansiri says his young son will inspire him to help take Wednesday back to the Premier League.
His son, Att, was one of our mascots for the Boxing Day game at home to Blackpool and, after completing the Hillsborough takeover today, Mr Chansiri said: “Att is passionate about football and I know will be my inspiration in this project.
“I have made the same promise to him as I do our supporters, he will not let me forget this until we are back in the Premier League.”
Paying tribute to outgoing chairman Milan Mandaric, he added: “Milan has been a wonderful owner of the club, taking over at a very difficult time and guiding it out of League One and handing it over with much still to play for this season in the Championship.
“I am pleased he has agreed to remain a supporter of the club, I am sure with his football knowledge and business expertise he will be of invaluable help to me.”
Mr Chansiri, whose family controls the Thai Union Frozen Group – the world’s largest producer of
tuna as well as one of the biggest worldwide general seafood producers – pledged to outline his vision for Wednesday once the takeover requirements are completed.
