Many Sheffield Wednesday fans are fuming with defender Julian Borner following his performance in the match against Reading.
The two sides are at opposite ends of the table and it was easy to see why, with Reading battling for promotion and the Owls in a relegation dogfight.
Borner didn’t help out new manager Darren Moore as he got sent off in the 29th minute (SofaScore), giving away a penalty completely unnecessarily. The Royals scored from the spot, as one fan called the defender’s blunder ‘absolutely shambolic’.
With the Owls already six points from safety before the game, it is understandable to see the fan base so frustrated. His performance before getting sent off was not good and the red card summed up his display. The centre-back lost both of the two ground duels he attempted, and lost possession four times (SofaScore).
It also means that the club will be without a defensive option through his suspension, and it will most likely not be just the fans who will be infuriated by the 30 year-old, but also the new manager as well.
Here is how Wednesday fans reacted:
“Borner off poor play from him. Yet again indiscipline from Wednesday #swfc“
“Borner is a shocking, shocking defender”
“Borner absolutely shambolic, first this mistake then the clear foul for the pen. Why god why do we have these players”
“Why did borner do that!!! Complete idiot!”
“Could you make any more mistakes in one play Borner? And tearing the shirt too? Ship him out!”
“Absolutely pitiful. Makes the mistake then compounds the mistake with that. They should stop his wages until he plays again”
