Former Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal looks rueful

Carlos Carvalhal was in charge of Sheffield Wednesday for 131 games, winning 56 of them

Head coach Carlos Carvalhal has left Sheffield Wednesday by mutual consent after two-and-a-half years in charge.

The 52-year-old Portuguese’s last game in charge was Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat by Middlesbrough.

Both bosses involved in that game have now left, with Boro manager Garry Monk dismissed on Saturday evening.

Carvalhal departs Hillsborough with the club 15th in the Championship table, having guided them to the play-offs in the past two seasons.

Coach Lee Bullen will be in interim charge for the Owls’ Boxing Day visit to Nottingham Forest.

“I am very sad at this moment because I have enjoyed my two seasons and a half so much with Sheffield Wednesday,” Carvalhal told the club website.
