Sheffield Wednesday striker Lucas João had a great return to the team this weekend. After missing several fixtures due to an injury, the player started the game against Wolves and had a big part in the 2-0 win, providing an assist for the second goal.
As the Portuguese press keep following the Championship club closely, Record have managed an interview with the player to talk about his comeback for Carlos Carvalhal’s Sheffield Wednesday.
“I felt good being back able to play. It was a very complicated period, not contributing by doing what I like most, which is to play football, but I’ve had the help from my teammates and the staff, so the reintegration became easy,” said the striker, who stayed out of the team for twelve games due to a groin problem.
João signed for the Owls from Nacional for €2.8m in 2015. He had four goals and eight assists in his first season in England, proving to be a good signing under Carlos Carvalhal.
Asked if more goals will come this season, the player showed he has some ambition: “I didn’t set a special goal. I want, yes, to score many more this season.”
Sheffield Wednesday are currently in seventh place in the Championship table, one point behind the playoff places and twelve points from leaders Newcastle United.
