  • Extended press conference with Sam Hutchinson

Sam Hutchinson has revealed that Sheffield Wednesday's former boss Jos Luhukay never told him why he was exiled from the team.

The midfielder described the four month snub as "horrible" when he and goalkeeper Kieran Westwood were told to train with the u23 squad.

In a frank press conference, he spoke for the first time about his frustration at not playing football and not knowing why.

"I was in at different times. I didn't even really see the first team to be honest with you. It was a horrible time.

"Jos had a different philosophy on football and a different way to look at it. I'm not sure he understood the championship at all.

"I never thought I would play again, and that was upsetting. I have been a big part of this club. Its like a family, the chairman included with that."
