Darryl Lachman comments on his failed stint at Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday

The Curacao international failed to have an impact at Hillsborough.

Sheffield Wednesday allowed one of their defenders to leave the club earlier this month.

The player in question was Darryl Lachman. The Curacao defender only joined Sheffield Wednesday in the summer from FC Twente but he had had little to no impact at Hillsborough.

He did not play a single game for the club since his summer move and was desperate for the move.

The 26-year-old, who played his last game of club football in February for FC Twente, ended up heading back to Holland to join up with Eredivisie outfit Cambuur on loan until the end of the season.

He has since made his Cambuur debut and this week has been speaking to Voetbal International about his time at Sheffield Wednesday.

He certainly did not seem bitter as he explained his reasons for failure in Yorkshire:

"No, that's not it. Eventually, everyone can say that 'Darryl has failed at FC Twente and in England.' Personally, I see it differently.

"I made ​​choices and make certain factors. Look at the situation in England. I went to a club where the head coach had not yet been appointed. That turned out wrong. If this man did not fancy you, he'd have seen.

"After the preparation, they have been very clear to me. They said, 'You're not good enough for English football.' Even then, the coach (Carvalhal) said that I could be better if loaned out."

Lachman was always going to have struggled to make it in the Wednesday first-team. Tom Lees, Michael Turner and Glenn Loovens were going to be ahead of him in the pecking order and Vincent Sasso was a personal favourite of Carvalhal's.

Lachman is unlikely to be returning to Wednesday in the summer, especially if the club win promotion, so good luck to him back in the Eredivisie.
