The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

WITH just four goals from their first five league games, the last thing Sh­effield Wed­nes­day wanted was to lose a prize striker – but Fer­nando Forestieri will not play again un­til De­cem­ber.

The 27-year-old Ital­ian suf­fered a knee in­jury dur­ing the in­ter­na­tional break and re­quires surgery. It’s a mas­sive blow to Car­los Car­val­hal’s side.

“I’m dis­ap­pointed for him be­cause he wants to play and to help the team,” said the Owls boss.

“But we don’t feel like we are not strong in the com­pe­ti­tion be­cause we lose one or an­other player.

“He can make a big dif­fer­ence, but this is the re­al­ity and I wish him to come back as soon as pos­si­ble.”
