Caretaker manager Lee Bullen has praised Sheffield Wednesday’s summer arrivals this week as we continue preparations for the coming Championship kickoff, and he had particular praise for former Cardiff City winger Kadeem Harris.
With the 26-year-old making the switch as a free agent following the expiry of his contract at the Cardiff City Stadium this summer, fans have largely been impressed with his efforts during our troubled pre-season campaign this summer following Steve Bruce’s decision to rip up the good faith he had by leaving us in a mess as he legged it to Newcastle.
Harris, however, is one of a few in line to make his competitive debut for the club when we open the campaign against Reading this weekend, and Bullen has been left very impressed with the lad.
Speaking to The Star this week, he explained.
“He just scares full-backs. He’s the type of player when I played that I would have hated to play against him. He has got that vital ingredient of pace in the modern game and I think it is something over the last three or four seasons at Sheffield Wednesday that we have been lacking a little bit. He has brought that in and Moses Odubajo has got similar sort of pace and big Dom when he starts galloping is a sight to behold so we have got a bit more legs in the squad now. We can balance it when we need that injection of pace and energy when we have days where we are going to have to be a little more pragmatic against good opposition.”
Fans will be hoping he can hit the ground running, and that he’s not the only one as a good opening day result will certainly settle nerves given our ongoing managerial search which will continue past the Reading clash.
