Chansiri reportedly makes Monk decision as Portuguese coach is linked with Wednesday job

The Sheffield Wednesday chairman Dejphon Chansiri has reportedly come to a decision over Garry Monk’s future at Hillsborough.

Monk’s side have won just two of their 13 Championship matches post-Christmas, a run which has seen the Owls drop from third to 12th in the table.

Speaking after Saturday’s 3-1 defeat against Derby County, the 40-year-old described the spell as his worst in football.

But Chansiri, with whom many Wednesday fans are rapidly losing patience, has assured Monk he will remain as manager next season, according to The Sun on Sunday (page 61).

The Thai is said to have put straight his fourth Owls appointment amid rumours of a move for the former Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha.

Caixinha was sacked by the Scottish giants two-and-a-half years ago after a short and fruitless spell.

But the Portuguese coach has had success at other clubs, namely Santos Laguna and Cruz Azul in Mexico.

His compatriot, Amadeu Paixao, is reported to have been present alongside Chansiri at Hillsborough on Saturday.

Paixao is understood to work as an advisor to the Wednesday chief, who is also the club’s owner.

Caixinha managed the Owls’ January recruit, Josh Windass, at Rangers.
