Carlos lands Premier League manager’s job

Carlos Carvalhal has landed a Premier League job … within days of leaving Wednesday.

The ex-Owls head coach, who left Hillsborough by mutual consent on Christmas Eve, has been appointed manager of bottom club Swansea, having been linked with the Welsh side in his first season at S6.

He faces a tough test to keep the Swans in the top fight and Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said: “We felt we needed to get the managerial situation resolved as soon as possible and while the timing is not always perfect, we can look forward to the second half of the campaign with renewed optimism.

“Carlos’ time at Sheffield Wednesday, which included securing two consecutive play-off places, highlighted that he has great character and personality to lead the squad and the football club, which is vital at such a crucial time.

“He has built up a lot of experience over the years which will ensure the team is structured and organised.

“He is driven and ambitious and while he has a big challenge ahead of him, I know he will tackle it without fear.”
