Ex-Sheffield Wednesday boss Carvalhal replaced Paul Clement at the end of 2017, with the Swans currently rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table.
Swansea’s form is yet to really improve under the Portuguese, with Swansea having picked up one win and one loss under their new manager.
However, Carvalhal insists he will receive the full-backing of the club’s board during this month’s transfer window… even if he has to sign “sardines” instead of “lobsters.”
“We have money for sardines and I’m thinking lobster,” Carvalhal told reporters during today’s press conference.
“I will do my best to try and bring in the best players. I will look to the lobsters and sea bass, but if not we must buy sardines. But sometimes the sardines can win games.”
“There are limits. I understand this is a responsible club and they don’t want to create a problem for the club in the future.”
Carvalhal was speaking ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup clash with Championship leaders Wolves.
But as far as transfers go… there’s definitely something fishy going on at the Liberty Stadium.
