Vermijl targets regular starting berth

10 February 2015


Having made his debut for Wednesday, Marnick Vermijl wants to nail down a regular starting berth.

The right back – who signed from Manchester United – has arrived with lofty ambitions on both the domestic and international front.

Vermijl’s target with Wednesday is the Premier League, while the defender is hoping to break into the Belgium squad after being placed on standby for the 2014 World Cup.

He told swfc.co.uk: “I am at an age where I need to start playing week in week out and that is the most important thing for me.

“Hopefully if I play well, I will have a chance to break into the national squad.

“It didn’t work out at Manchester United for me and you could see that as a disappointment. But I don’t view it like that.

“I trained with the best players in the world and you can learn a lot from these people.



“You see how hard they work and it was an eye opener to see that every single day.

“There were a few teams in the running but Sheffield Wednesday is the complete package. This is a good step in my career.

“Wednesday is a massive club. It is a really good move for me and a big step up again.

“I just want to help get the club back into the Premier League. I think that is the aim but that is the same for most of the teams at this level.”
