The Portuguese boss was reprimanded by referee Mike Jones following his remonstrations surrounding a penalty appeal, after Adam Reach’s shot appeared to be blocked by Michael Dawson’s hand in the area.
The Football Association has taken retrospective action against the 52-year-old, who has until 6pm on Thursday to appeal the decision.
Carvalhal is unlikely to appeal the charge having been sent to the stands during the fixture, in what was his second sending off of the season following his removal from the sidelines during the Owls’ Carabao Cup exit to Bolton.
Carvalhal is likely to face a touchline ban for his second offence of the year.
The wheels are really coming off at Sheffield Wednesday.
The club are sliding down the table following four consecutive draws, and having their manager unavailable to conduct first team affairs will not help matters.
Carvalhal is under a lot of pressure following his side’s shocking start to the season, and many fans have called for the boss’ sacking in the past few weeks.
Perhaps some Wednesday fans will be hoping the FA throw the book at their boss for his antics against the Tigers…
Wednesday fans, do you feel Carvalhal’s time at the club is coming to an end? Have your say below…
