Moore will become the fifth man to take charge of a Wednesday side come tomorrow evening after Garry Monk, Tony Pulis, Neil Thompson and Andy Holdsworth, and will be hoping to get off to a winning start against Rotherham United.

Chansiri spoke after firing Pulis of how he wanted to make sure he didn’t make another mistake in his appointment, ultimately taking two months to decide that the new man was the person to take the club forward.

Speaking to the media this week, the Owls chairman says that it was Moore’s personality as much as his achievements that sealed the deal.

He explained, “We had a lot of CVs, and we also looked outside - both abroad and in the UK at who would be a good coach for our situation. We interviewed some.

“I think Darren is the best choice… He is ambitious, and has a good mentality. When I had a chat with him I saw his ambition and mentality, he’s straightforward and we also had a laugh during the conversation.

“When I interview any coach I look at their CV, their ability and also their personality.”

Dejphon Chansiri likes Darren Moore's ambitiousness after appointing him at Sheffield Wednesday.

While there has been no confirmation of the length of Moore’s deal – neither he nor Chansiri spoke of it – the chairman did suggest that he hopes it’s long-term, something that would bring some much-needed stability to the setup at Hillsborough.
