Carlos in three-year deal as Owls eye final

Carlos Carvalhal revealed he has signed a three-year contract with Wednesday as the club prepares for its biggest match in many a year.

Speaking just 48 hours before the Championship play-off final with Hull City, Carvalhal said he agreed the deal with chairman Dejphon Chansiri earlier in the year.

He said he is enjoying life at Hlllsborough and praised the support of Mr Chansiri – even in the bad times early in the season.

Looking to the future, the head coach said: “I want to create in Sheffield Wednesday something that the players must enjoy.

“Here they can play positive football, enjoy the game and they can become better players.”

Turning his thoughts to the final, Carvalhal acknowledged the strength and experience of Hull but said of his players: “They are fresh and looking forward to the final.

“We are positive, we are healthy and I feel our team is very strong.”

As he did with the crucial home games with Cardiff and Brighton at the end of the season, Carvalhal has also called on the fans to give full support to the team on Saturday, to applaud them even if they make a mistake and so give the Owls extra energy.

With the backing of a near 40,000 travelling support, Carvalhal saluted the great backing all through the season and added: “Now we are in the final, I ask the fans to create a very good environment for our players from the very first minute.”
