Sheffield Wednesday star Sam Hutchinson says he won't change his playing style, despite disciplinary problems

The midfielder has picked up 12 bookings this season.

Sheffield Wednesday defensive midfielder Sam Hutchinson has been discussing his playing style this week with the BBC.

Hutchinson has overcome some personal and physical demons to become a Championship regular with promotion chasing Sheffield Wednesday.

After retiring from the game in August 2010 because of a chronic knee injury he returned to his former team Chelsea in December 2011 and joined Wednesday, initially on loan, in 2014.

Despite his previous injury problems Hutchinson is not afraid to put his foot in and his all-action style of play often gets him in the referee's notepad.

He has picked up 12 yellow cards this season but told the BBC he will never be changing his style of play:

"I won't ever calm down because it's not my character.

"It's not how I am off the pitch but sometimes you need it. It's my make-up and it won't change."

Hutchinson has featured in 27 games for Wednesday this season and he adds a bit of grit to the guile that Carlos Carvalhal has introduced at Hillsborough.

His career has been troubled but it is great to see him staying fit and doing so well in an excellent Owls side.

As for changing his style of play, hopefully he never will.
