Carlos Carvalhal extends Owls contract

18 April 2016

Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal has extended his current contract at Hillsborough.

The Portuguese has proved a popular figure in S6 having engineered the Owls’ ascent into the top six of the Championship after joining in the summer of 2015.

Carvalhal brought a wealth of experience to Hillsborough having led a raft of high profile clubs across Europe, including the likes of Besiktas, Sporting Lisbon and Braga.

The Owls have since adapted a brand of free-flowing football in keeping with the remit of chairman Dejphon Chansiri, who told

“I am delighted that Carlos will be staying with Sheffield Wednesday. I am sure our supporters will also welcome this news as Carlos has led a complete overhaul of the style football we play, particularly at Hillsborough.

“The brief was for the team to play exciting, aggressive and entertaining football, which has been delivered.

“I look forward to working with Carlos both now and in the future.”

Carvalhal’s backroom staff have also extended their current contracts at the club.
