Sheffield Wednesday winger Marco Matias has revealed he is open to a Hillsborough exit at the end of the season.
The Owls winger’s deal expires in June and in an interview with Portuguese website Ambidestro, reported in The Star, Sheffield, the 29-year-old failed to rule out a potential return to Portugal when his contract ends in the summer.
Matias moved to Yorkshire four years ago when he signed from Portuguese side Nacional in a deal worth more than £1million.
The interview was far-ranging and discussed his time with the Owls as well as his prior achievements, when, the question about a possible return to his native Portugal was addressed.
“There is always that possibility,” admitted the 29-year-old. “It is my country, a league that I love and with which I identify myself. Besides, there’s nothing like being at home.”
Matias has played 13 times under manager Jos Luhukay this season, ten from the start, and has scored twice as well as registering one assist.
He was a second-half substitute in the 2-2 draw with Rotherham United last weekend, playing the final 13 minutes.
Marco Matias said everything, without saying anything at all.
He was elusive in his answer that didn’t directly confirm he will be leaving in the summer, but for all intents and purposes, he is considering going at the end of the year.
Injuries, lack of form and lack of game time have all been an issue for the 29-year-old since his arrival in 2015.
With his contract up in the summer, you would imagine that will be it for the winger at Hillsborough, and in six months he will leave the Championship side.
