Sheffield Wednesday's Fernando Forestieri has revealed his passion for the club, but admits he may have to tone it down a bit.

Speaking after winning Sheffield Wednesday Player of the Year at The Star's 10th Annual Football Awards, Forestieri declared how grateful he was to pick up the prize.

And he also spoke about how much the club means to him

"When I go to the pitch every single game, I just think about this game. I put in a lot of passion...in the last game (against Cardiff) I forgot I had a booking and for the second goal I ran to the pitch to celebrate with Gary Hooper, with the team. I forgot everything that had happened, in the passion. I need to control myself but when I go on the pitch I want to help my team do the best they can every game."
