Sheffield Wednesday Manager Smashes Money To Prove His Team Doesn't Suck

Carlos Carvalhal, the manager of underachieving English second-tier club Sheffield Wednesday, faced some tough questions from the media following a 4-2 defeat to crosstown rivals Sheffield United. Rather than answer simply with words, a testy Carvalhal pulled out a 20-pound note and gave reporters a visual demonstration.


That’s Carvalhal crumpling up the note, then smashing it into the table to prove that, no matter how badly his team gets beat in the Steel City derby, they still have value.

Honestly, it’s a pretty creative move, and I think it gets the point across efficiently. If Carvalhal gets fired, maybe he can look for a job in elementary school teaching.
