West Bromwich Albion are in ‘talks’ with former Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal over the vacant manager’s job at The Hawthorns, according to journalist Lewis Cox.
The Lowdown: Manager search goes on
Since then, the search has been ongoing for the Baggies to find a suitable replacement, but they haven’t yet found a permanent successor to the 61-year-old.
A new managerial candidate has entered the fray – one with plenty of experience in English football.
The Latest: ‘Talks’ with Carvalhal
According to Cox on Twitter, West Brom are eyeing up Carvalhal as their possible new manager.
The Midlands football journalist tweeted:
“Understand talks between #wba and out-of-work Portuguese boss Carlos Carvalhal. Ex-Sheff Wed and Swans boss interviewed by Blackburn in summer. Last job was in UAE until start of this month. Now strong favourite among betting.”
The Verdict: Intriguing option for Baggies
Would Pinamonti be a good signing for Forest?
There may be some trepidation because Carvalhal hasn’t managed in England for almost four-and-a-half years, but two seasons at Braga between 2020 and 2022 – during which he twice took them to the Europa League knockout rounds – show that he can perform at a high level.
