Sheffield Wednesday manager delivers bizarre press conference

Given that his side suffered an embarrassing defeat against their local rivals at the weekend, it's perhaps understandable that Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal was a little fraught during a media conference on Tuesday.

In the wake of Sunday's 4-2 loss against Steel City rivals Sheffield United, the Portuguese coach cut an animated figure as he faced the local press.

Indeed, Carvalhal decided to give the journalists in attendance a little practical demonstration about the value of money using a £20 note.

In response to a question from BBC Radio Sheffield reporter Andy Giddings, Carvalhal fished the bank note from his pocket and asked everybody to identify its monetary worth. Thereafter, the 51-year-old crumpled the note, bashed it against the desk and then asked the very same question again, much to the bemusement of his audience.

"It's still twenty pounds, correct?" Carvalhal said. "It is the same."

The point being, presumably, that the value of his team remains the same regardless of the trouncing they received in the derby. Safe to say, it's one economics lesson those poor confused reporters won't forget in a hurry!
