The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

SHEFFIELD Wed­nes­day man­ager Car­los Car­va­hal ex­pects new sign­ing Fer­nando Forestieri to be­come a star for the Owls this sea­son.

Car­va­hal has of­ten opted to play cen­tral midfielder Lewis McGu­gan in the No10 role – a po­si­tion the player does not see as his best.

But with the sign­ing of Forestieri, Car­va­hal will have the op­tion of mov­ing McGu­gan into his pre­ferred role of cen­tral mid­field.

“Forestieri will be very im­por­tant for us,” said Car­va­hal. “He plays be­hind the striker, be­tween mid­field and at­tack.”

“Since the be­gin­ning of the sea­son we have missed a player in the sec­ond line of mid­field near the striker.”
