Carvalhal set for Sheffield Wednesday discussions

Having been denied a shot at the Premier League, Carlos Carvalhal will set down with the Sheffield Wednesday chairman to discuss his immediate future.

The Owls finished fourth in the Championship table, some 12 points behind second-placed Brighton & Hove Albion, and faced Huddersfield Town in the playoff semi-finals. After a goalless first leg Steven Fletcher put the hosts ahead at Hillsborough, but the Terriers struck back through a Tom Lees own-goal before going on to win the contest in a penalty shootout.

David Wagner’s side will now take on Reading at Wembley later this month for a place at the top-table of English football. As for Wednesday, it is yet another disappointment at the tail of the season after last year losing the final to Hull City. Carvalhal will now sit down with the Hillsborough board to discuss his future, although the Portuguese coach is relaxed over the situation.

When asked about his future, he said: “I don’t talk in this moment. In this moment I want to relax a little and I will sit with the chairman. I am not worried about my future. The semi-finals were very divided. Little things make the difference. Penalties are then a lottery. Even though we are disappointed, we must be proud. Sheffield Wednesday are now a team that fights for promotion.”
