I’m not for quitting says Carvalhal

Carlos Carvalhal says he has not considered quitting Wednesday this week and still believes that he will lead us to promotion at the end of the season.

After Saturday’s abject defeat to bottom club Bolton, there were calls from some Wednesday fans for Carvalhal to walk away from the job.

However, he says that has not been in his thoughts this week as he prepares the squad for Saturday’s trip to Derby and added: “I still believe we will get promoted this season.”

The head coach spoke of Wednesday’s lack of consistency, and said: “We know when we don’t win things are more complicated and the fans stay unhappy, like we are unhappy.

“I understand that the people are not happy at this moment, we are not happy, but I must tell you that we believe we will be out of this position and be up.

“We are not far away from the first positions and have plenty of time to recover.”

Carvalhal believes the inconsistent start to the season is also a mental problem, rather than based on ability, and said questions have been asked internally in recent days, putting some responsibility on the shoulders of the players.

He said: “When you play like we did against Leeds with a high level of performance, high intensity and create lots of problems for them and then, after some days, with the same players and same formation we do the exact opposite at Bolton, then we must think about that in reflection and try to understand why.

“We have some answers in this moment – it is an internal situation. We have some answers and we must work hard to do more of what we did against Leeds and less of what we did against Bolton.

“It is not a question of capacity, it is not a question of quality, it is probably more mental than other things.

“I think our players learnt a lesson in the last game so let’s see if in the future if we can be more consistent. When you are more consistent and when we play at our level then we are a very difficult team to beat.”
