Massimo Luongo issues brutally honest verdict on his first season at Sheffield Wednesday



Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Massimo Luongo has revealed that this season has been the “most frustrating” of his career so far.

After a four-year stay at Queens Park Rangers came to an end in the summer, Luongo joined Wednesday in the summer after establishing himself as a key player in West London.

But the 27-year-old has endured a stop-start season since making the move to Hillsborough, and Wednesday fans are yet to see the best of the Australian international.

Can you answer these seven Sheffield Wednesday questions correctly?

Who scored Sheffield Wednesday's first goal of the 2019/20 season?

The midfielder has featured only 18 times in the Championship with nine of those appearances coming from the bench, making a total of 21 appearances across all competitions this term.

In his most recent appearance for the Owls – a 5-0 home defeat to Blackburn Rovers – Luongo was dismissed early on, and picked up an injury in the same game.

Eventually, Luongo’s red card was rescinded, but the effect of the injury meant that he was to be ruled out for a few weeks before the EFL campaign was brought to a halt.

Speaking to Yorkshire Live, Luongo revealed that the 2019/20 campaign as been the “most frustrating” of his career to date.

He said: “Literally, the day my red card got rescinded was when I got my scan results and it showed I had a grade two tear in my abductor. The funny thing is I don’t know how long I had that for but I had a few weeks of rehab on it.

“It has been the most frustrating year in my career. I have not been able to play every week. I had to wait for my chance to break into the team and then I got injured.

“I think when I have had the chance to play I have shown what I am about. I think I played with a lot of passion, did really well and scored a couple of goals. Hopefully I can stay fit for the rest of the season.

“If I am fit, I am confident I am going to play in the majority of those games.”

It has been a tough second half of the season for Garry Monk’s side, who have dropped to 15th having picked up just one win from their last 10 games.

The Verdict

It looked to a real coup when Wednesday pinched QPR’s top player from their club, but it hasn’t worked out as of yet.

He has been in and out of the team for various reasons, and as soon as he was starting to come into form, he picked up an injury and a red card that was eventually turned around.

He will be eager to hit the ground running once the season resumes and show fans what he’s all about.
