An emotional afternoon

19 November 2012


Owls midfield ace Jose Semedo has thanked Wednesdayites for their fantastic backing at the City Ground on Saturday.

Thousands of Owls supporters flocked to the game in Nottingham at the weekend paying tribute to the popular midfielder in recognition of his commitment over the past year and a half in S6.

Fans could be seen wearing Semedo masks and draped in Portuguese flags and the 27-year-old revealed it was an emotional afternoon.

“It was unbelievable and I am so thankful to them,” Semedo said.

“As I have said before, it is an honour for me to play for this club and to play in front of the supporters.

“It was emotional for me to see all the fans on Saturday; I had to have a deep breath when I came out onto the pitch and carry on. I can’t explain how much the supporters mean to me.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to all of them.”

On the field, though, the game did not go the way Wednesday hoped despite a spirited performance by Dave Jones’ side who gave Forest problems all throughout the afternoon, albeit without converting chances into goals.

Semedo added: “We deserved more from the game and so did the supporters.

“It was really painful to lose the game but that’s what happens when we don’t take the chances.

“Results at the moment aren’t reflecting what is happening in the games. We shouldn’t have lost on Saturday because we created so many chances.

“But I hope the supporters will come back to Hillsborough for the next game and give us their support as they always do.

“All we can do now is look towards our next game where we go again and aim to get three points.”
