The Owls' players don't return to pre-season training until Monday after their participation in last season's Championship play-offs.

With Sheffield Wednesday's players not due back in training until Monday, many have been - quite rightly - making the most of their final few days' holiday.

Britain's weather - and perhaps its political climate too - has understandably driven some of them as far away as physically possible - such as the South Pacific island of Tupai.

Part of French Polynesia, a flight from London takes over 24 hours, so it's reasonable to assume a spot of desynchronosis (jet-lag) is coming the way of Fernando Forestieri.

Whether the Italian is afflicted or not, he'll at least have the memories to make up for it. Like the time he spent with three-time Champions League winner Samuel Eto'o.

On Wednesday Forestieri, who is recently married, uploaded a picture to Instagram of himself with wife Andria and the Eto'os - who themselves are newly hitched based on the striker's recent posts.


Amazing experience on Tupai Island with the lovely couple! Congratulations again @setoo9 #tupai

At the peak of his powers, 35-year-old Eto'o fired Barcelona to two European triumphs, with another arriving at Inter Milan.

The Cameroonian later moved to England with Chelsea and spent a short time at Everton before moving on to Sampdoria and then Antalyaspor, whom he also managed last season.

Meanwhile, Wednesday, who narrowly missed out on promotion via the play-offs last season, are known to be in the market for a new striker...

They couldn't, could they?
