Al Hasawi blamed the error as an oversight because banks in Kuwait were closed due to a national holiday in the country.
After reading negative comments from supporters on social media about the situation, he took to Twitter to hit out at those being critical, demanding respect for the impact he says he has made at the club.
I'm sad that that people jump on the negativity of a 1 day late payment & never the positivity of what I have done for this wonderful club.— @FAWAZ_ALHASAWI (@fawaz_alhasawi1) March 1, 2016
I made the commitment to leave my country, my family & my home to put this club back where it belongs. Don't believe the hype'! DEFLECTION— @FAWAZ_ALHASAWI (@fawaz_alhasawi1) March 1, 2016
Al Hasawi evidently believes he should be appreciated more, stating he has made personal circumstances in his attempts to get the club back where they belong.
He mentions 'deflection' as if he is being made a scapegoat for the club's failure to reach the Premier League, but while the club remain under a transfer embargo due to financial losses, the blame will lie at his door as he is the owner.
If he in turn wants to 'deflect' from this, the club need to start winning on the pitch, and are in a downward spiral at present after three consecutive defeats, and travel to Ipswich Town this weekend.
