Former Sheffield Wednesday player Carlton Palmer believes that Sam Hutchinson gives everything for the club but sees him as more of a League One player than a Championship one.
Offering versatility to his game, Hutchinson can play anywhere across the defence and has can also operate further forward in midfield, where he has played as a defensive midfielder, central-midfielder and also as a right-midfielder.
Is Hutchinson Championship quality?
Whilst recognising he gives everything for Sheffield Wednesday, Palmer sees Hutchinson as a League One player, telling This is Futbol: “I know Sam is a fans’ favourite, he’s 110% and he gives everything for Sheffield Wednesday.
“He was let go from the club and then brought back because of his versatility. In this league, he can play a variety of different positions.
“For me I think he’s a player that you have to help get you out of this division. I don’t see him as one that you sign up for three or four years and he finishes his career there, you know he struggled in the Championship.”
After last season’s heartache of being relegated from the Championship, Sheffield Wednesday and Darren Moore will be hoping that they have assembled a side that can help them challenge for an immediate return to English football’s second division.
