Carlos Carvalhal wants to stay at Sheffield Wednesday for the long haul and bring the good times back to the Hillsborough outfit.

The Owls head coach, a surprise choice to succeed Stuart Gray last summer, has won over Wednesdayites with his attacking, entertaining brand of football.

At just past the half-way stage in the Championship season, Wednesday lie in seventh position, two points off the play-off zone. Their impressive results and performances even led to Carvalhal being linked with the Swansea City job last month.

But the affable Portuguese chief insists he is enjoying life at Wednesday.

Carvalhal said: “There is a feeling we can do something good here. We are doing well at this moment. We are in a good way.

“I wish to stabalise. I am happy here. The time when I am happy in a place, I don’t need to move. I don’t need money.

“My life is completely stabalised. It is not money that moves me. They say everybody has a price. I don’t have a price. I decide if I am happy.

“The day when I’m unhappy or a club fires me, I don’t have any problem with that.

“I like football and am enjoying what I am doing.

“But it is not just about me. It is whether the people are happy with me. We can’t plan too much for the future in football because everything can change in a few weeks.

“I wake up to do my work, be serious and try to make the team better.

“I am not planning to go to Manchester United, Arsenal or Real Madrid. I am ambitious but I’m not focused about that. I know I must focus on my job. People will recognise my work the better we do.”
