Manager Profile

Time at Club:





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

However, he bounced straight back into the game with what might be seen as a temporary promotion (depending on how the season pans out) with Premier League side Swansea City after the role became free following the sacking of Paul Clement.

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.

I said to my players that Liverpool were a top team, they are really strong, but they are a Formula 1 car. If you put a Formula 1 car in London in traffic, the Formula 1 car will not run very fast.
