The Welsh club sacked Paul Clement on 20 December after a shocking run of bad results.

The former Besiktas, Sporting Lisbon and Maritimo boss Carlos Carvalhal was announced as the new manager but if the betting is anything to go by he faces an impossible task of keeping the side up “We are very pleased with the appointment, Carlos’ time at Sheffield Wednesday highlighted that he has great character and personality to lead the squad and the football club, which is vital at such a crucial time, He 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.” said Chairman Huw Jenkins.
