Carlos Comments: "Let's Fight With Courage"

Carlos Comments:

After Simon Grayson left Preston for Sunderland just days ago, Carlos Carvalhal became the third-longest serving boss in the division, behind Ipswich`s Mick McCarthy and newly-promoted Millwall`s Neil Harris.

On the eve of his two-year anniversary at Hillsborough, which saw back-to-back play-off finishes, the 51-year-old spoke to the Star about the coming season, as the Owls seek begin a promotion charge, and get into the Premier League at the third time of asking under the Portuguese manager.

The Star reports that Carvalhal said: "My staff and I try to do better and better with the players and the club the same. We have something to do here and everybody wants the same so let`s fight without any kind of fear. Let`s fight with courage in all the games."
On the club`s potential promotion tilt, he replied: "This club must fight to go to the Premier League next season." He continued to add: "It may look easy to stabilise a team in the first positions but it is very hard".

He articulated upon this point: "It is so difficult that only us and Brighton have done it in the last two seasons. There are 20 clubs who want to get promoted. But in a short time, we have changed the style and we have a style now and everybody recognises our quality from other coaches, players and fans".

In conclusion, he expressed: "We are in a good way and we have a positive environment here, which is important, to create expectations. I think the giant is alive and we are fighting for something."
