Former Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal has revealed the one person who made the decision to hire him at the club.
The Owls have gone from being promotion candidates to a team in real trouble, dropping out of the play-off places in the Championship table, down to 15th as things stand.
Current boss Garry Monk certainly has his work cut out to improve things at the club when and if football returns.
Taking over from Steve Bruce, Monk’s start to life at the club did look likely to bring similar success and football as Carlos Carvalhal did to the club.
The Portuguese coach spent two seasons with Wednesday and missed out on promotion after finishing sixth and losing in the play-offs during his first season with the club.
Touching on his time with the club, the 54-year-old has revealed that it was chairman Dejphon Chansiri’s son that gave the final decision on his appointment.

Carlos, was a fantastic, Manager, the normal morons, got him sacked, if we still had him now, we probably, would be in the Premiership, or at least fighting in the play off’s, be very careful what you wish for. Now we have someone who can’t even do an interview, 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

It’s amazing how timing and managing a rebuild is so hard…Carlos certainly let his heart rule his head on this aspect and allowed certain players to be far too influential off the pitch. Having said this best few years we’ve had for some time.

Several months ago I’d have said no chance. Nowadays it’s a different story.
