Manager Profile

Carlos Carvalhal has had a varied managerial career, taking charge of teams in Portugal, Turkey, and now England with Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday, with whom he'd led into the play-offs two seasons in a row.

Carvalhal has spent the majority of his managerial career in his homeland, Portugal, with the likes of Sporting Lisbon and Braga, before venturing off to Turkey with Besiktas, then Istanbul. In the summer of 2015, after a three-year absence from the dugout, he was a surprise replacement for Stuart Gray.

During a 15+ career in the dugout Carvalhal has won the Portuguese Cup and Super Cup with Leixoes, as well as another Portuguese Cup with Vitoria Setubal.

Carlos Carvalhal Quotes

When we (Sheff Wed) went 2-0 up, we closed the doors and windows very well. We didn't want to let any light inside our house. We closed everything.

We can't sleep because, in the Championship, if you sleep one minute, the opponent will kill you, so I am here to wake everybody up.

In an orchestra they have a saxophone, they have a piano and they have the drums. We have some players who must be the drums. You can't have an orchestra that is just 11 people playing piano or all playing the drums.
