‘Wednesday career done’: Some Owls fans respond to Dominic Iorfa injury news

Some Sheffield Wednesday supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on Dominic Iorfa after the defender appears set for a lengthy spell out injured.

The Owls lost 2-1 at home to Yorkshire rivals Barnsley on Saturday.

But another poor result wasn’t the biggest disappointment of the afternoon. Versatile defender Iorfa came off in the 83rd minute after suffering an Achilles ligament injury.

Speaking after the game, manager Tony Pulis claimed Iorfa will have an operation on Monday or Tuesday and will be out for the rest of the current Championship campaign.

Here are how some Owls supporters reacted to the news.

Iorfa joined the Owls from Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2019 for £250,000.

The 25-year-old has become a key player for the Owls since his move to Hillsborough, illustrated by winning the club’s Player of the Year award last season.

Iorfa is predominantly a centre-back who can feature at right-back. But due to his physical abilities, Pulis has also deployed him as a holding midfielder during his short reign at Hillsborough.

The Owls manager described Iorfa as a Rolls Royce player.

The defeat to Barnsley leaves Wednesday bottom of the Championship table. If Pulis’s task wasn’t challenging to begin with, it has no doubt only become more difficult now.

Should Wednesday go down, Iorfa would certainly be top of the list for potential suitors.
