Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of Sheffield Wednesday’s trip to Birmingham City on Wednesday night, boss Carlos Carvalhal appeared to lose his cool on one of the questions and Owls fans are divided on his behaviour.
The Portuguese boss has come under fire following his side’s 4-2 derby defeat to arch-rivals Sheffield United at Hillsborough on Sunday, and he chose to hit back at his critics when speaking to the press on Tuesday.
Armed with a £20m note Carvalhal screwed it up and then said it was still worth £20, stating that his players’ values also remains the same despite the result against the Blades.
Sheffield Wednesday supporters were quick to have their say on the incident via social media, and they were divided with their opinions.
While some said his reaction and the passion he had shown was “class”, others feel “he’s lost the plot”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Usually can’t really read a lot from to press conferences, but Carvalhal was class. Got to get behind him and the players tomorrow.#swfc

Excellent retort from Carvalhal today. Sets the tone for the week. Pressure is on, let's see how the team respond #swfc

Carvalhal has passion & anger, no doubt. Talking is done. All that matters is results on the pitch. Nothing less than 3pts tomorrow #swfc
