Sheffield Wednesday Chair Milan Mandaric Confirms He Wants To Sell The Club
League Championship Sheffield Wednesday Chair Milan Mandaric "has confirmed he wants to sell the Championship club," according to SOCCERWAY. Mandaric took charge of Wednesday in '10 with the club "suffering financial difficulties following relegation to League One." While Mandaric "wishes to relinquish control of the club due to 'family and my business commitments,'" he also explained that "there are no offers currently on the table" (SOCCERWAY, 8/13). TEAMTALK reported Mandaric said that "talks are on-going with unnamed interested parties and that he would only do what was in the best interests of the club." Mandaric: "I am aware of the speculation regarding potential new investors. Speculation can be unhelpful but when your club is Sheffield Wednesday, these things will happen. People can now see this is a huge club on a sound financial base with one owner and that will always attract attention" (TEAMTALK, 8/13).
