Sheffield Wednesday part ways with Carlos Carvalhal

  • Sheffield Wednesday announce head coach Carlos Carvalhal has left the club 

Carlos Carvalhal has left his position as Sheffield Wednesday head coach by mutual consent, the Sky Bet Championship club have confirmed.

The Portuguese, who guided the Owls to the play-offs in his first two seasons at Hillsborough, leaves the club on the back of a seven-game winless run.

His exit comes just hours after chairman Dejphon Chansiri released a statement of support for his manager after fans chanted for his dismissal in the wake of Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat to Middlesbrough.

‘Both parties believe the time is right to go our separate ways. I maintain a huge amount of respect for Carlos as a coach and as a person and he will always be welcome at Hillsborough. I wish him every success in the future.’
