Cocko Unhappy At Treatment

Cocko Unhappy At Treatment

Out-of-favour Wednesday defender Graham Coughlan has vented his frustration at being left out of manager Brian Laws' plans.

The former Plymouth centre-back was a key figure as the Owls maintained their place in the Championship at the first time of asking under former boss Paul Sturrock but has found his chances at Hillsborough limited since Sturrock's departure.

And Cocko was even loaned out to Championship rivals Burnley towards the end of last season at a time when Wednesday weren't exactly strong at the back.

And the defender has revealed that he doesn't know what the future holds for him after being told he can leave the club by Laws, and also being linked with a reunion with Sturrock at newly-promoted Swindon Town.

'I don't know what the future holds or what will come of it but I'm a pretty determined character,' Coughlan told the Sheffield Star.

'I am not a quitter and I disagree with the decision that the manager has made. There has been very little contact from the club.

'Brian has told me that I can go and that I am not part of his plans. In my opinion, there has been no logic behind that decision. I disagree with the manager and I am not happy with it.

'But I am a professional and I will go back to pre-season training and continue to give a 110 per cent for the football club.'

It looks all set for Coughlan to move away from the club before the start of the season with Lee Bullen recently penning a new deal at the club and Laws also considering strengthening his options at the back.

Wycombe Wanderers are said to have enquired in to his services but Paul Sturrock's Swindon look firm favourites to land his signature after Cocko admitted he'd love to work with his former gaffer earlier this week.

We should keep him. He is a real pro, no bells or whistles, just honest and hard working.

Can't help but feel sorry for Cocko. He was awesome in his first season here and bagged as few goals for us too. He cried out for the squad to be strengthened and ironically hasn't had a game since then!
