Solid at the back

20 January 2018

Owls defender Frederico Venancio praised the team’s defensive organisation following Wednesday’s 0-0 draw with Cardiff at Hillsborough.

Wednesday now have three clean sheets in as many games and the Portuguese is enjoying playing his part in the side’s solid back line.

Venancio said: ”It’s always good to help the team, as a player you don’t want to be in the stand, you want to be on the pitch helping your team mates and I’m doing that now, and I’m happy about that.

“I’m still learning about the different culture and different football, but I’m trying my best to learn every day from all of the lads.

“Today, we did well in the game, we were solid in the back and we created some chances, unfortunately we didn’t score but we didn’t concede and that’s a positive.

“Defending is not a one man job, the defensive organisation of the team is very good at this moment, we just need to score our chances to get the points to move up the table.”

The centre back says he is enjoying working under new manager Jos Luhukay and the team is embracing the Dutchman’s philosophy.

He added: “It’s different ways of work, different ideas, it’s been positive and all of the team are behind the new ideas to try something new on the pitch.

“There’s a lot of changes in the team and you can see this in the last performances that it is working well and we just need to keep going.”
