Former Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal looks set for major move
Former Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal looks set to take on a new job, according to reports.
The Portuguese, who led the Owls to back-to-back Championship playoff campaigns in 2016 and 2017, has earned plaudits for his time as manager of SC Braga in his homeland, winning the Portuguese Cup for only the third time in the club’s history last year.
Having been linked with jobs in Brazil previously, reports in Portugal suggest the 56-year-old is finally poised to make a big switch across the Atlantic – to Atletico Miniero.
