Perfect fits

29 July 2016


Carlos Carvalhal has welcomed the dual arrival of new recruits Almen Abdi and Daniel Pudil.

The Premier League pair joined the Owls this week and the head coach has emphasised how the ex-Watford stars will significantly strengthen the squad.

He exclusively told swfc.co.uk: “I am very, very happy with these signings because they will improve our squad very much.

“Of course, everybody knows about Daniel as he had a very successful season with us last season on loan.

“So to bring him back on a permanent transfer is something I am very happy about.

“We know him, he knows us, so it is just like welcoming an old friend back to the club.”



On Swiss international Abdi, Carvalhal was equally wholesome in his praise.

The playmaker arrives at Hillsborough with an outstanding reputation – and, says Carlos, not without good reason:

“Abdi signing for Sheffield Wednesday is like a glove in the hand. He is a fantastic footballer while at the same time he has the right spirit, he is a team worker.

“We identified him as a top target and I know he will fit perfectly into our dynamic.


“He knows the Championship, he has succeeded in this division, and believe me when I say our fans will be singing his name very, very soon.”
