A familiar face returns!

19 November 2019

The Owls welcomed a very familiar face back to these parts on a chilly S6 Tuesday morning.

Italian maverick Paolo Di Canio is the man in question and not for the first time the former Wednesday magician took centre stage at Hillsborough!

Di Canio went back to his football roots in the Steel City as part of an in-depth feature for Sky Sports Italia to be broadcast later this month.

He told swfc.co.uk: “I am very emotional to be back here at Sheffield Wednesday.

“I enjoyed some very special times and very special goals celebrating with our supporters.

“This is the very first time I have been back inside the stadium since the last time I played and this is an emotional moment.

“I am here today working for Sky Sports Italia which I enjoy very much. It is very nice to see some old friends once more to bring back some special memories.”
