I am a fighter

30 November 2020

Owls defender Julian Börner endured a tough start to the 2020/21 season.

The centre back – who recently surpassed the 50-appearance milestone for the club – struggled to hold down a place in the starting XI at the beginning of the season.

But it’s fair to say the popular defender has fought back and has rediscovered his form for the Owls, contributing to three clean sheets from our last five games.

But while the 0-0 draw against a strong Stoke side presented more positives from a defensive perspective, the 29-year-old spoke of the need to turn these one-point games into three.

“We have been strong at the back,” Börner said. “We have not been losing and this is good, a positive thing but we need goals.

“That responsibility is with us all, from the back, defenders, midfielders and strikers, it has been a period where we haven’t scored enough.

“But we are one team, we are defending well but when we have chances in the game we have to score and Wednesday is the next chance.

“Everybody here knows I have a good mentality, I am a fighter, I have fought hard to be back in the squad, I’m training well and I hope I can help the team with my attitude and my game.”

Wednesday are soon back in action on Wednesday, hosting a high-flying Reading side who hit the ground running this season.

The Royals are the joint second highest scorers in the division and Börner continued:

“It will be a tough game versus Reading but yes, we need points and that is the main thing.

“I hope Wednesday we can pick up three points.”
