Sheffield Wednesday attacker Sam Winnall spent a long time on the sidelines after he was struck with an anterior cruciate ligament injury whilst on loan with Championship side Derby County last season.
Sam Winnall hasn’t played a competitive game of football since February 3rd 2018, as Derby County beat Brentford 3-0. The attacker is nearing a comeback to football after a long spell on the sidelines, playing 45 minutes in a behind closed doors game for Wednesday’s development side.
The 27-year-old is looking forward to working with manager Jos Luhukay for the first time, and can’t wait to get off to a fresh start at Hillsborough after slipping down the pecking order under previous manager Carlos Carvahal.
“It is going to be a fresh start for me under new management and new staff and I’m really looking forward to it, “ Winnall told the Sheffield Star.
“For obvious reasons, I left last year but now I am back and all I am focused on is getting myself back in the starting eleven, hopefully scoring goals and helping this club to be successful.
“It is great that I am coming back into a side that are on fire and have been playing really well,” acknowledged Winnall.
“The run of fixtures that we had in between the international breaks were really tough but we came out if with some really good performances and results.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back involved with the squad and getting myself hopefully challenging for a place in the starting eleven.”
The attacker will have to put in a lot of effort and hard work to get back into the Wednesday side, with The Owls performing well under Luhukay. Wednesday currently sit in 6th place, in the final play-off spot ahead of the chasing pack after 12 games of the 2018/19 season.
