Ex-Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City boss Carlos Carvalhal set for Brazil move

Ex-Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City boss Carlos Carvalhal is in talks with Vasco de Gama, as per a report by Brazilian news outlet OJogo. 

Carvalhal is currently in charge of Rio Ave having returned to the Portuguese Primeira Liga after nine years away last May. They became the 17th different club he has managed in his lengthy managerial career.

He has impressed in his first season in charge and they are currently sat in 5th position in the league, with only FC Porto, Benfica, Sporting Lisbon and Braga ahead of them.

Rio Ave were on course for one of their highest ever finishes (5th) in the league before the season halted to a swift stop. They were unbeaten in nine games in the league and are just four points off the European places.

Their boss could now be set to move on to Brazil this summer with Vasco de Gama interested in his services. They play in the top flight and came 12th last season.

The 54-year-old was a popular figure at Hillsborough and guided the Owls to the Championship Play-Offs twice during his time there. Despite losing to Hull City and Huddersfield Town respectively, the Portuguese boss’ time in South Yorkshire will always be remembered by Wednesday fans.

Carvalhal parted company with the Owls in December 2017 after a poor run of form and went on to manage Swansea City in the Premier League later in that campaign. Could he be on the move to South America over the coming months?
