Carvalhal leaves Wednesday to become second casualty from same game

Oli Fisher

Carlos Carvalhal has left his position as Sheffield Wednesday head coach by mutual consent, the Sky Bet Championship club have confirmed.

The Portuguese, who guided the Owls to the play-offs in his first two seasons at Hillsborough, leaves the club on the back of a seven-game winless run.

His exit comes just hours after chairman Dejphon Chansiri released a statement of support for his manager after fans chanted for his dismissal in the wake of Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat to Middlesbrough.

Chansiri has now said in another statement: “Both parties believe the time is right to go our separate ways.”
