Today marks a year since Milan Mandaric took over the Owls as club chairman.

The Serbian businessman, a former chairman of Leicester City and Portsmouth, took over at the end of last year, paying £7 million to the club’s bank and footing tax bills of around £1.4 million.

A year on and he’s spent ‘at least £16 million’ on the club, helping settle bills, managerial contracts, dealing with club losses from the previous year and splashing the cash on a host of new players.

He’s also helped push the Owls into the automatic promotion spots under boss Gary Megson, who he appointed last season to deal with the mess left by former boss Alan Irvine.

On Saturday Wednesdayites who travelled to Oldham Athletic to see the Owls beat the Latics 2-0 and maintain their promotion-chasing form revealed a banner thanking Mandaric for what he’s done for the club so far.

More thanks are set to go Milan’s way in the coming months if Wednesday achieve promotion back to the Championship come the end of the season. He’s expecting to take his spends on the Owls up to £20m come the end of the campaign.

In the meantime, ХВАЛА MILAN.
