Speaking to FourFourTwo in their latest edition, the former Owls boss said, “I think they miss me, but that’s a reciprocal feeling… I’ve said that I’d like to go back in the future. My intuition tells me it will happen one day.

“I’m an Owl forever, and those are the sort of situations I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life. I saw them at matches a couple of times last season and was pleased to meet them – after all, no one visits a person they don’t like.”

This comes after he took to Twitter when Darren Moore was appointed as manager earlier this month, saying, “It’s time to be together!!! It’s not about Chairman, Manager, players or fans ... it’s about Sheffield Wednesday Stop the critics, be positive and together, “wake the monster”... we must stay in Championship this season. Good luck Darren Moore.”

Braga are currently flying high in the Primeira Liga as they stay in the hunt for the league title, though they’re still nine points behind table-topping Sporting.

Carlos Carvalhal says he'd love to come back to Sheffield Wednesday one day.
