Sheffield Wednesday: Pudil targeting top with Owls

Daniel Pudil admits if he wants to play Premier League football during his career it probably will not come with parent club Watford.

The full back joined Wednesday’s own push for top flight football last month on a season-long loan.

And after two years with Watford, he knows his future likely lies away from the Premier League outfit.

“I would like to play in the Premier League one day,” Pudil said. “It is difficult to say if I have a future at Watford.

“There is a squad of 25 and 17 can be foreigners. They already bought 17.

“The future will probably be somewhere other than Watford but I will never forget my time down there.”

The 29-year-old says the major changes at Wednesday this year remind him of those the Hornets underwent on their way to the top flight.

Pudil says it took Watford a dozen matches to find their feet after the facelift and says the Owls are now showing the signs of doing the same.

He said: “I knew Wednesday had brought in 15 or 16 players and I thought of Watford.

“It was exactly the same – new chairman, new players.

“It took us 12 games to settle down at Watford.

“During the three games I have played here, I have seen us dominate – even against teams like Burnley who were in the Premier League last season. Fulham are a big team too, and Bolton have good players.

“But we dominated and played good football.”
