Former Owls team up at Swindon

Former Owls team up at Swindon

Former Owls striker Paolo Di Canio, now manager at Swindon Town, has invited former Wednesday winger Etienne Esajas for a trial at the League One club.

The Dutchman has been playing in the Eerste Divisie with Helmond Sport recently but is keen for a return to English football and he'll be looking to impress with Town.

Esajas made 60 appearances for the Owls during a three-year stint at the club which was plagued by injury.

He arrived at Hillsborough from Vitesse and showed signs of his quality but was never able to hold down a place in the Owls' first team.

Esajas is on trial with Swindon this week and Di Canio will make a decision on whether to sign the player on a permanent basis on due course.

We could probably do with someone like this in our side right now who can at least put in a good delivery. Never really got a prolonged chance in a Wednesday shirt in The Championship. He could have been a revelation in League One!

I always found it a bit weird that he didn't get more of a chance. I think he showed some real ability and was probably better than some of the wingers that followed him. I still prefer him to one that we still have. I hope he does well.

Didn't Swindon get relegated?? He'd destroy league 2 even if he's injured!! Think i'd rather play in the Eerste Divisie though going to Ajax, PSV etc rather than Accrington Stanley, Dagenham & Redbridge and Morecambe!

Well he's only on trial and may not even get a contract at Swindon!

I'd have him back. I think he's a better impact player than JJ. Look at his performance at the pig sty. If Leon had squared it to him at the end (the big donkey) he'd have levelled.

i thought he looked good when he got a chance but i heard that he didn't get picked much and ultimately was released because he refused to try in training which is a pretty sorry state of affairs for a professional footballer. given the effort that di canio put into training and matches i can't see him tolorating ettiene for long

don't think we replaced him - as a sub he was awesome and any free kicks within 40 yards he'd at least have a crack at and usually a pretty good one. if the training thing is true then I can see Di Canio loosing it with him and he will either be a complete wreck of a player after that or he will be another Cantona and move on to be a superstar??

Thought Esajas was quality for us (now and again). Literally just like JJ in the sense he can be amazing and awful in the same game. Shame we never gave him a decent chance.....Ah, I see that comment about JJ was already thrown out there....must be true in that case!

He had talent but a poor attitude
