I am ready

18 January 2018

Owls new recruit Joey Pelupessy says he is ready and eager to get his career underway at Sheffield Wednesday.

The midfield man completed his move from Dutch top flight side Heracles Almelo to Hillsborough on Thursday.

And the former Heracles captain has told he believes the time is right to take up this new challenge in the Championship with Wednesday.

He said: “I am here now, so I am very happy. This is a big opportunity for me.

“I have always said I’d like to play my football in England and now it is going to happen.

“I watched a lot of football in my youth career and was always watching football in England and I believe this is the right moment for me to be here.

“Sheffield Wednesday are a big club, a great club and I can’t wait. I hope as soon as possible to play.”

So what can we expect from the former FC Twente and Heracles man? The 24-year-old answered:

“I am a defensive midfielder, strong and fast, I like to make tackles and I think I can play good football going forward.

“I have big expectations from this club so we will see how it goes but I can’t wait, I just want to put my boots on and get on the pitch. I am ready.”
