West Brom: Baggies in talks with Carlos Carvalhal

West Brom: Baggies in talks with Carlos Carvalhal -West Bromwich Albion News

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

It is now approaching two weeks since Steve Bruce was shown the exit door by Albion following a hugely below-par start to their Championship season.

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.”

Which one of these kit manunfactuers have never produced Forest shirts?

The Verdict: Intriguing option for Baggies

Carvalhal could be a very interesting potential appointment for the Baggies, having taken Sheffield Wednesday to the Championship play-off final in 2016 and the semi-finals the following year.

Furthermore, the 56-year-old was in charge at Swansea City in 2017/18 during their time in the Premier League, and he is famed for some outside-of-the-box methods.

Would Pinamonti be a good signing for Forest?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He has a close relationship with Jose Mourinho, with the pair described as ‘good friends‘, and has called the current AS Roma boss the “king of football“.

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.
