Motivation not frustration

26 September 2014

  • Jeremy Helan takes positive approach
  • Pace ace working towards starting berth
  • Owls head to Cardiff on Saturday

Jeremy Helan has taken a positive approach to his current role in the squad.

The pacey wideman has started just one game from his seven appearances this season, with the rest coming from the bench.

But the ex-Manchester City man says rather than feeling frustrated, he is even more motivated to push his way into contention for a starting berth.

He told “It’s not frustration, it’s motivation. I’m not starting games at the moment but the team are doing well.

“For me, I take it as a motivation. I look at the players that are playing and think, what are they doing that I’m not?

“What is he doing well?

“Every day I come to training to work hard at everything because if someone gets injured, or is not at their best and you get thrown on, you have got to do the job.”

Despite his late arrivals as a substitute, the Frenchman has made telling impacts this season, most recently in the trip to Birmingham where Helan buried a low strike into the net to seal the win.


He added: “In football, you don’t change teams that are winning and playing well. It’s very rare that happens.

“It’s a squad game and all players should be involved and play a part - even in training because, by performing well, it raises the standard of everyone’s play.

“Some of the football we have played this season has been the best I have seen during my time here.”
