Swansea boss Carvalhal looking forward to Sheffield Wednesday reunion

Swansea City boss Carlos Carvalhal is looking forward to facing Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup fifth round.

Swans set up the meeting after thrashing Notts County 8-1 in last night's replay.

“I feel it will be like going back home," Carvalhal said.

“It was my home for two-and-a-half years and I was very happy there.

“I don't know if you know, but in our second season there we got more points than they had got in 50 years. It was the third highest record they'd had in 150 years.

“We got to the play-offs twice and that's something very strong which means I am very connected with the club.

“It's the same with Besiktas, I will always be linked with that club. I believe one day it will be the same with Swansea – I will be a Jack."
