Theo Corbeanu admitted his move to Sheffield on Wednesday had been “a bit disappointing”, although he vowed to learn from the coaching staff in order to improve his game.
The versatile forward joined the Owls on loan from the Wolves this summer, and the deal generated a lot of excitement as the Canada international arrived with a good reputation with the Wanderers.
However, Corbeanu struggled to buy time with Wednesday, making three substitute appearances in the league. But, he played in the Papa John Trophy, including in the victory at Mansfield last night, where he set up the winner and shone throughout.
And, talk to Yorkshire Live after the 2-1 win, Corbeanu opened up about how his time was spent under Darren Moore.
“It was a little disappointing, but it’s something I have to do. I know I have a lot of things to improve. I know it and the coaches tell me it all the time. My overall game needs to improve and that’s why I’m here.
“I want to help the team and I feel that my role is to make a difference. Whenever I’m in the field or have an opportunity, I want to take it. “
Remember the player who scored Sheffield Wednesday’s first goal in each of the past 15 seasons?
You have to say Corbeanu is doing extremely well here as he is honest and also makes it clear that he is desperate to be successful.
There’s no denying that the loan hasn’t gone as planned so far, but he showed his talent last night and fans will now want Moore to give him a chance in the Championship game.
After the recent results, those chances should come soon and then it will be up to Corbeanu to indulge himself.
