Rave reviews for Darren Moore as Sheffield Wednesday's Andre Green targets QPR scalp

Sheffield Wednesday forward Andre Green says having Darren Moore in charge is the ‘best thing’ that could have happened in his football career.

It may have only been for the U23s, but Green got off the mark in blue and white this week, scoring a well-taken goal for Sheffield Wednesday as they beat Hull City 3-0.

Green was brought in during the January transfer window to help bolster the Owls’ attacking threat, however an Achilles injury he picked up in training meant that he’s not been able to have the impact that he’d been hoping for.

Now though, as he picks up more minutes for the senior team and in the U23s, the 22-year-old could still play a big role in Wednesday achieving what would no doubt go down as one of the Championship’s most impressive great escapes.

On the back of his first goal in a Wednesday shirt, Green has revealed how delighted he is to be playing for the new Owls boss, saying it’s ‘the best thing that could happen for my career’.

The attacker said: “The gaffer was in charge of West Brom’s Under-23s when I was at Villa so he knows about me and my game… I was with the physios when I found out about his appointment here and they will tell you I couldn’t stop smiling, I was buzzing.

“From the conversations I’ve had and knowing how he plays, this is the best thing that could happen for my career.

“I’ve also spoken with Jamie and Willo, they have already helped me a lot, they know the kind of player I am and the way we play is perfect for a player such as myself.

“I’m really excited for the future but right now the priority is giving all we can to stay up and we will go to QPR on Saturday with confidence.”

Green has admitted that it’s been a stop-start beginning to life at Hillsborough following his move earlier in the year, but as he goes in search of his first senior goal for the club he’s got the chance to be part of something that could become a remarkable achievement.
