Atdhe Nuhiu: Sheffield Wednesday supporters' criticism does not hurt me

Atdhe Nuhiu has played 10 times for Sheffield Wednesday this season, scoring three times.

Atdhe Nuhiu has told the Sheffield Star that the criticism he receives from Sheffield Wednesday fans does not faze him. 

The target-man divides opinion at Hillsborough, with many supporters of the Yorkshire club of the opinion that he doesn't have the ability required to represent them.

However, after being a regular starter under Carlos Carvalhal, Nuhiu has learnt to put these disparaging comments to the back of his mind, and insists that he is feeling very confident at the moment. 

“This is my third year at Wednesday and Carlos is my third manager. What the statistics say is that I have always been playing under the three managers so that means I am doing a lot of good stuff here. If the manager had someone better than me, then he would play him," he explained. 

“It [criticism] doesn’t affect me. The manager gives me a lot of confidence and he appreciates what I do. The most important thing is that I am doing what he wants.”

Nuhiu has been one of Wednesday's most prominent performers so far this campaign, and has featured regularly in Carvalhal's starting line-ups. 

The Portuguese manager has rotated his team on a regular basis, but Nuhiu seems to be his main man up front. 

The 26-year-old has played 10 times for the Owls so far, and during that time he has scored a total of three goals. 

The pressure is on Nuhiu to keep that scoring record up, as it has been reported by the Shields Gazette that Danny Graham could be in line to join Wednesday on loan from Sunderland in the near future.

Over Nuhiu's three years at Wednesday, he has scored 22 times in 96 appearances.
