Some Sheffield Wednesday fans have been poking fun at the club’s latest update about Massimo Luongo’s red card being rescinded ahead of the game against QPR.
Luongo was sent off for the Owls in their recent 5-0 loss against Championship side Blackburn Rovers this past weekend. Lewis Holtby had got a brace and while Luongo was sent off and was supposed to serve a three-match ban, it has now been confirmed that the ban has now been rescinded and he will be available for selection in the FA Cup game on Friday.
SWFC fans: Should the referee be demoted?
Demote him right away
Luongo deserved the red card
The Owls’ Twitter handle posted a confirmation of the news and many fans have poked fun at the announcement.

Disgusting that it was given. Probably had a huge impact on the game

Too little too late. Shouldn’t have gone in the first place.

A former QPR player himself, the Australian was a regular for the London-based side last season too. He had made 43 appearances in all competitions for them last season, scoring three goals and picking up four assists as well.
What do we think?
It is brilliant news that Luongo will be available against his former club. His regular presence in midfield will help them, considering he had a WhoScored rating of 6.58 in the Championship this season.
