Sheffield Wednesday boss Jos Luhukay has told the Sheffield Star that he felt Josh Onomah was simply 'not good enough' against Swansea City on Saturday.

The Owls have been in dire form of late, and sit just five points clear of the drop zone after Saturday's defeat to Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

It appeared to be going well for Wednesday as they kept the score at 0-0 before Marco Matias struck a surprise opener for the Owls.

 

However, they conceded twice within a matter of seconds as Bersant Celina and Wayne Routledge found the net to give Swansea all three points.

Wednesday manager Luhukay is under huge pressure right now, and he bold a decision on Saturday by substituting midfielder Onomah at half time in favour of Matias.

The young Tottenham loanee, 21, has been sent out on loan to Wednesday to aid his development, having spent last season on loan at another Championship side in Aston Villa.

Unfortunately for Spurs though, Onomah isn't impressing, and Luhukay completely blasted his performance, suggesting that he wasn't good enough, brought nothing in possession, gave the ball away regularly and had no influence on the game at all, offering a brutally honest verdict on his torrid display.

“He was not good enough,” said Luhukay. “He brought nothing on the ball. He lost three, four, five balls right at the beginning. That is the reason why he came off and we changed it. Honestly, he had no influence on the game. That was his chance but you must take it when you have the chance,” he added.
