In an exclusive interview with Soccer FanCastCarlton Palmer has reacted to comments made by Garry Monk regarding his decision to accept the Sheffield Wednesday job in 2019.
Talking to The Athletic (via Sheffield Star) this month, Monk admitted signing up for the role on the Hillsborough bench was a mistake.
After 14 months in charge, the 42-year-old He was fired as the Yorkshire club found itself second from the bottom of the championship.
Will Moore keep Sheffield Wednesday active?
In his interview with The Athletic, Monk also claimed that he knew there were a lot of things wrong on Wednesday under Dejphon Chansiri, something that Palmer felt he obviously had to know early on and should have served as a red flag. .
Discussing Monk’s recent comments, the former Wednesday midfielder said FFC:
“Anyone who takes the Sheffield Wednesday job surely must have been doing their homework. There is too much management merry-go-round, so something is not right at the football club. But the problem you have is that it’s a huge club, it’s well supported and, you know, it’s a great job. So you think, right, I can go in there, I can do a good job and this, that and the other.
“But clearly there are problems there. I know there are issues with the way that Chansiri controls the side of the game in terms of players coming and going. I would be very surprised if Garry didn’t know that when he went in there. “
With eight Championship games yet to be played, survival is not yet out of reach on Wednesday. However, if the Owls end up relegation to League One, it will be interesting to see if Darren Moore is kept or given the same treatment as Monk and Tony Pulis.
