We will return stronger

31 May 2016


Owls’ head coach Carlos Carvalhal said his team will come back stronger next season following the 1-0 defeat to Hull in the Championship play-off final.

After an outstanding debut season in charge of Wednesday, which saw the club exceed expectations from many quarters in challenging for promotion, the Portuguese is now preparing to continue the good work into the next campaign.

Carvalhal said: "We're a strong side, but we start our work in the months ahead to create a stronger side, month-by-month, year-by-year.

“It's going to be a very difficult task. But at the moment, it's a feeling we'll start next season better than the last one, for sure, we'll be stronger.

“If we do our job, then that will happen and we'll try to upgrade the team to be better and better.”

Wednesday fans showed their appreciation to the team in overwhelming style at Wembley on Saturday, with 40,000+ staying behind after the final whistle to acknowledge a memorable season.

Carvalhal said the supporters were important all season, just as they will be next campaign:

He added: “The first achievement again must be about creating a fantastic environment with our fans.

“They buy a ticket and they enjoy what they're watching.

“With this, we know we'll be stronger and if we play good football, we can win more times."
