The soccer club bankrolled by the actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney made history last month. Winning the promotion league, this duo added another star to their relentless pilgrimage to the small city of Wales. With this milestone, they have not only earned respect from the natives, but the team has bonded forever with owners. One of the biggest instances can be the statement of Ollie Palmer, which clearly showed his devotion.

His words seemed to have taken a toll on the fans after he took a dig at Ed Sheeran’s involvement in Ipswich Town, and they are infuriated.

Wrexham striker recently sat down with his co-mate Ben Foster on his podcast show to talk about the changes Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have brought to the soccer team. During this discussion, they drew a comparison between this duo and Ed Sheeran paying tribute to their owners. The team player talked about how the English singer has been a part of this industry for years.

“Ed Sheeran, Ipswich. I don’t know what his share of it is, [he’s] part-owner. Has he done what these two guys have done?” Palmer said. In his response, his co-host stated that the Grammy winner is nowhere near the Hollywood duo. Moreover, the 31-year-old continued praising the Free Guy star and his BFF for putting so much effort into Wrexham AFC.
