Carlos Carvalhal is the Portuguese manager of Welsh football club Swansea.
In an interesting interview he speaks about his love of philosophy, especially the French tradition. Philosophy is about complexity, and so is football, he argues (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-5455533/Carlos-Carvalhal-interview-Swansea-City-manager.html). Philosophy is slowly but surely pulling Swansea away from relegation so likely they will remain in the Premier League.
