Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal has said he has known for a while that winger Jeremy Helan wanted to retire to focus on religion. The 24-year-old Frenchman, a devout Muslim, is set to retire from the game.

Carvalhal told BBC : “It’s not new for me. It’s something I’ve talked to him about since the start of the season. “When he talked with me I understood and I just said to him to take some time to be sure about the decision. “In that period he was very professional – he’s a nice guy – but I must tell you that his head isn’t in football.”

Leaving football to focus on religion? Hmmm… make dem watch the guy well well o!
