Sheffield Wednesday: Fans call for Fernando Forestieri to start after Swansea City goal

Several Sheffield Wednesday fans want to see Fernando Forestieri start in their next Championship game against West Bromwich Albion.

The former Watford striker recently missed six matches after being suspended by the Football Association for using racist language in a pre-season friendly against Mansfield Town back in 2018 (Independent).

Does Monk need to turn to Jordan Rhodes?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, he has now returned to action and has made appearances as a substitute in the Owls’ last four league outings (WhoScored).

He managed to make an impact in his most recent cameo against Swansea City, scoring his first goal of the campaign (WhoScored).

Forestieri will hope that he can now kick on after getting his name on the scoresheet, and he will be looking to work his way into the starting 11 for their next game against West Brom.

Sheffield Wednesday posted a clip of his goal on their official Twitter account on Monday, which led to several of their supporters calling for Garry Monk to start the Italian when they visit the Hawthorns after the international break.

Here is what some had to say…
