He arrived in South Yorkshire a relative unknown.
Carlos Augusto Soares da Costa Faria Carvalhal certainly one of the longest names in football, but not the biggest.
Nearly 2 years later, he's a man very much at home.
"To me Sheffield is Sheffield Wednesday," said Carvalhal.
"The relation with the fans and their relation in the games with my players which is fantastic so I'm very very happy here.
"Also my family know how happy I am here. Sometimes I joke with them that I'll go and retire and they look to me and say no you'll never retire because we see in your eyes that you love what you're doing."
Since their relegation from the Premier League in the year 2000 Wednesday had never been in the race to return.
But in Carvalhal's first season they fell at the final hurdle at Wembley and they're once again in the running - 6 straight wins ensured their qualification for the playoffs once again.
He said: It's very important to be strong in our final games of course but it doesn't make us stronger than any of the other teams.
He added: "Does our playoff experience last season mean that we're better equipped to play in the other games? It's something that we consider a little advantage but it doesn't make us favourites.
"We are in the same position as the others. We start a new competition, with each team having a 25% chance to go up, and the teams that go through to the final will have a 50% chance to go to the Premier League."
And that is the objective.
When owner Dejphon Chansiri bought the club he set a deadline of 2 years to win promotion - that deadline expires this summer.
