Wolves sack McCarthy
Old foe Keane next Wolves boss?
MICK McCARTHY'S six-year reign as Wolves manager ended today when he was sacked by the club.
Steve Bruce has been installed as 3/1 favourite to take over at Molineux, with McCarthy’s old adversary, Roy Keane, at 16/1.
The former Ireland boss had been under pressure after a poor run of form this season but yesterday's 5-1 defeat at home to local rivals West Brom was the last straw for the Wolves board.
“Wolves have today announced that manager Mick McCarthy has left the club with immediate effect,” the club said in a statement issued just before 11am today.
“The board took the difficult decision to terminate Mick's contract after a run of form which has seen Wolves pick up only 14 points in the last 22 league games, after a promising start to the season, culminating in yesterday's 5-1 defeat at home to West Bromwich Albion.”
McCarthy took over at Wolves in 2006. He led the club to promotion to the Premier League in 2009 and managed to keep them there for two full seasons.
