Dominic Iorfa hints at Sheffield Wednesday future after Darren Moore chats
Sheffield Wednesday star, Dominic Iorfa, is full of praise for Darren Moore, who he says is looking forward to working with him next season.
Iorfa is currently continuing rehabilitation on an Achilles injury that he sustained against Barnsley earlier in the season, and is only expected back in full training once preseason resumes ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
The 25-year-old has been a big loss for the Owls this season, with the reigning Player of the Season managing just 10 Championship appearance before rupturing his Achilles, and there are worries that the club may be unable to keep hold of him if Wednesday are relegated to League One.
Judging by recent comments, though, he’s already enjoying a good relationship with the new manager – something that could bode well for next season when he plans on making his comeback.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Iorfa said, “I’ve had conversations with him, he’s been really good… He’s just said he looks forward to working with me next season which is good to hear, so he’s just said to take my time with my recovery because he wants me coming back 100%. That’s reassuring and good to hear from the gaffer.
“The lads have really bought into what he wants, it’s just a shame with what’s happened with his health recently, we all wish him the very best and a speedy recovery.
“We’ve got three cup finals coming. The lads got a great result the other day and hopefully we can just kick on now and take it to the last game and see what happens.”
And there’s hope that he could take the next step on his road to recovery early next month, with Iorfa adding, “I should be back on the grass in the next few weeks, maybe at the start of May, and in the off season it’s just a case of building up my fitness.
“Come first day of pre-season I want to be totally ready. I’m looking forward to the first time of having the ball at my feet, it’s been a long time!”
Iorfa has one more year left on his current Owls deal, but was the subject of reported interest from the Premier League and Championship last year.
