Carlos Carvalhal is shock candidate for Premier League vacancy

Former Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal could be in line for a shock return to football with Premier League side Swansea City according to The Sun.

The paper report that the Portuguese manager was at Anfield to watch Liverpool thrash the Welsh side 5-0 and it has fuelled speculation he could get the vacant job at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea parted company with Paul Clement last week and midfielder Leon Britton has taken charge of the side since on a caretaker basis.

Meanwhile, Carvalhal left the Owls on Christmas Eve, following a 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough that saw Boro boss and ex-Swansea man Garry Monk also lose his job.

Despite the way it ended at Hillsborough, Carvalhal will have developed a good reputation for the work he has done with Wednesday.

He delivered two successive play-off finishes where they ultimately came up short, firstly against Hull City in the final, before Huddersfield Town beat them on penalties last season.

Should he join the Swans, Carvalhal would inherit a side bottom of the table and five points from safety following yesterday’s beating.

The Verdict

This would be a very surprising move and one that Owls fans certainly will find bemusing, however Swansea are in an awful position.

At their best his Sheffield Wednesday side were very well organised, hard to beat and Carvalhal got players playing above their normal standard, which is what Swansea need.

But, it would still be a massive shock to see him walk into a Premier League job just a few days after leaving a Championship side, although Wednesday fans are sure to wish him the best in the future after what he did during his time at the club.

Thoughts, Owls fans? Let us know in the comments below.
