Carlos Carvalhal: Sheffield Wednesday manager

Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal has denied speculation linking him with the Swansea City managerial vacancy, insisting his focus remains on the Owls’ play-off push.

The Swans hotseat remains vacant since the dismissal of Garry Monk earlier this month, with the likes of Marcelo Bielsa, Jorge Sampaoli and Gus Poyet all linked with the job.

The likes of Brendan Rodgers and David Moyes were mentioned as possible appointments when the vacancy first arose, but both were quick to play down interest in the position.

On Wednesday, reports claimed Swans chairman Huw Jenkins was interested in speaking to Carvalhal, who has led Wednesday to seventh in the Championship.

But when asked about the rumours, Carvalhal told the Sheffield Telegraph: “I am a professional. I don’t talk about rumours. I am preparing the team to play on Saturday (against Birmingham) in the same way as I prepared them for Wolves last week.”

The Portuguese boss added: “This kind of news comes from us playing good football. We are playing really well and scoring goals.

“I am trying to help Sheffield Wednesday play better and better. We have a very important game on Saturday against Birmingham.”
