Sheffield Wednesday suffer 3-0 defeat against Sunderland after Chansiri’s extraordinary rant

Sheffield Wednesday suffered a disappointing 3-0 home defeat against Sunderland on Friday to continue their woeful start to the new campaign.

With the relationship between fans and owner Dejphon Chansiri at an all-time low, the result was another devastating blow to the club. 

The Thai businessman attacked supporters yesterday for their lack of respect towards him and said he will no longer put money into the club. 

The Owls’ performance on Friday will further increase the crisis at Hillsborough.   

Wednesday made a poor start against Sunderland, conceding a corner that allowed Dan Ballard to score within the first five minutes. 

The Black Cats quickly doubled their advantage through Jack Clarke, who received the ball from Jobe Bellingham and smashed it into the bottom right. 

The 22-year-old winger completed his brace from the penalty spot just before the half-hour after Bambo Diaby’s foul on Mason Burstow. 

Xisco Munoz’s side showed improvement after the interval but failed to recover from their dismal first-half performance.

The latest defeat means the Owls have picked up just two points from their first nine Championship matches. 

They are at the bottom of the standings and are favourites to drop down to League One. 

Munoz is under immense pressure and must inspire a better display when he takes his team to West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday.
