Sheffield Wednesday supporters will be quietly relieved that there has been a break in action, after their disappointing 2020 so far under the management of Garry Monk.
The Owls have only won once in their last ten matches, which has seen them drop to 15th in the Championship table, much to the frustration of the Hillsborough faithful.
In a recent Q&A session on his official Instagram account, Owls midfielder Barry Bannan was revealed which team-mate is the worst dressed at the club.
Bannan had no hesitation in revealing that German defender Julian Borner held that accolade, which is likely to raise a smile amongst the Sheffield Wednesday supporters.
Bannan and Borner have both been key members of Garry Monk’s squad this season, and will know that performances simply have to improve at the earliest of opportunities, otherwise they could be in for a nervous finish to this year’s league campaign.
Bannan and his Sheffield Wednesday team-mates will take on Middlesbrough on the 2nd May, although it remains to be seen if the scheduled return date will still go ahead as the off-the-field problems continue to develop.
Are these 16 Sheffield Wednesday facts true or false? Have a go now!
It’s a bold call!
I’m sure Borner will disagree with Bannan here, but the Scotsman certainly had no hesitation in saying that Borner is the worst dressed player currently at the club.
It’ll be interesting to see if he responds to the claim whilst this ‘lockdown’ is in place. Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk will be hoping that this break from competitive action can be a positive break for his players, who haven’t performed to a good enough standard since the turn of the New Year.
They’re far better than their current league position suggests, but they need to find the belief that they can win games in their final nine matches. If they don’t, then they could be in for a very finish to the season with the teams below them in the table picking up vital points in the battle to survive.
