PL: Swansea confirm appointment of Carlos Carvalhal

Swansea have appointed former Beskitas and Sporting Lisbon coach, Carlos Carvalhal as head coach following the sacking of Paul Clement two weeks ago.

Although the Portuguese has no Premier League experience, he’s done a laudable job at Sheffield Wednesday leading them to the Championship play-offs in two successive seasons before parting company with them on Christmas Eve.

“We are very pleased with the appointment,” Swansea Chairman, Huw Jenkins said on the club website.

“We felt we needed to get the managerial situation resolved as soon as possible and while the timing is not always perfect, we can look forward to the second half of the campaign with renewed optimism.

“He (Carlos) has built up a lot of experience over the years which will ensure the team is structured and organised.

“He is driven and ambitious and while he has a big challenge ahead of him, I know he will tackle it without fear,” he added.

The 52 year-old will take charge of the Swans until the end of the season and is expected to be in the dugout as his team squares up against Watford on Sunday.
