Defiant Fernando Forestieri posts on Instagram as Sheffield Wednesday star's ban continues

A defiant Fernando Forestieri has posted on Instagram as his suspension from first-team fixtures continues.

Though a court found the Sheffield Wednesday forward not guilty of using racist language towards a Mansfield Town player during a pre-season friendly last year, the Football Association later imposed a six-game ban using their own disciplinary measures.

Wednesday expressed their ‘extreme disappointment’ after a subsequent appeal failed.

And after a short spell in his native Argentina, Forestieri has continued to train with his teammates despite being unavailable until the Owls’ trip to Cardiff City on 18 October.

Posting on Instagram on Wednesday lunchtime, the 29-year-old wrote in Spanish: “What can you do to injustice?

“Laugh and keep dreaming”.

Forestieri has scored or made 55 goals in 119 games since his 2015 transfer from Watford, which according to Transfermarkt cost Sheffield Wednesday £3.7 million.

The bulk of those arrived in his first two seasons at Hillsborough, however, and the former Italy Under-21 international’s future there is currently uncertain with his contract due to expire next summer.
