What was said in Sunderland’s dressing room after Sheffield Wednesday as Luke O’Nien reacts to offside goal



Luke O’Nien believes that following a lackluster second half of the season, Sunderland’s players must return strong and prepared for the preseason.

The Black Cats lost 2-0 against Sheffield Wednesday at the Stadium of Light, which meant that had only won two of their previous fifteen games and finished 16th in the Championship.

Following the match, Sunderland’s players had a protracted dressing room debrief with acting head coach Mike Dodds, during which O’Nien shared his views as captain. “I suppose emotions are fairly strong and I stated a few things,” the defender remarked to the Echo when she inquired about the topic of conversation. I’ll let the group and I analyze and provide that. It was more of a reflection of the season’s events and what we still need to do moving forward.

We will receive pre-season programs in the mail, which we must adhere to. The processes we’ve set in place were the key focus; they remain and they continue to return since day one. Furthermore, we must expand upon them.

“Everyone has to return strong and ready for action; jerseys are available for pick up at the beginning of the next season. These were the kinds of things that were addressed, and how fit you return will be a reflection of the culture we are trying to develop from day one. I’ll make sure to drive that as much as necessary so that we can return prepared for the preseason.

O’Nien headed home a free kick from Callum Styles on Wednesday, giving Sunderland the lead, but the goal was disallowed for offside. Then, just before halftime, Danny Rohl’s team took full advantage as goals from Josh Windass and Liam Palmer put them ahead.When questioned about his rejected goal, O’Nien responded, “I thought it was tight.” “I saw it back, and someone told me it was really near, possibly even onside. To be honest, I tried to head it in the opposite corner. It seemed like a strong header.
