Carlos Carvalhal sees himself back at Sheffield Wednesday… One day
Former Sheffield Wednesday manager, Carlos Carvalhal, has admitted that he thinks he’ll be back at Hillsborough one day.
Carvalhal is currently doing an impressive job with Braga in his home nation of Portugal, but is fondly remembered in Sheffield for his efforts that saw the Owls twice make it into the Play-Offs – losing in the final in 2016 and semifinal in 2017.
The 55-year-old brought Wednesdayites some of their best moments in recent memory and took them to the cusp of Premier League promotion for the first time in almost two decades, and admits that he’s ‘an owl forever’.
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.
