Steve Bruce reveals Fernando Forestieri excited him most about joining Sheffield Wednesday

Steve Bruce enjoyed a winning start to life officially as the Sheffield Wednesday boss when he saw his side overcome Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

Fernando Forestieri made his return to the starting XI for the first time since November after spending months on the sidelines with a troubling hamstring injury.


And, according to a report by The Yorkshire Post, the Argentine-Italian forward is the man that excited Bruce the most when he joined the club.

“It would be wrong to pick out one, but I have always thought Forestieri is a real good player,” he said.

“It was good to see him back at Ipswich. I thought he showed glimpses of what a good player he is. It will be interesting to see how he is and if we can keep him fit.”

The Verdict:

Forestieri has been key for Sheffield Wednesday over the past couple of seasons, having been their top goalscorer in their previous two campaigns.

However, his injury concerns have come as a blow to The Owls this year and they have dearly missed the contributions he can offer to the side.

With Financial Fair Play regulations an issue at Hillsborough, there will always be a concern that another club can come in for the 29-year-old, however, Bruce will now want to be getting the best out of him for the rest of this season.
