Profile

Mick McCarthy is the longest-serving managers in the Championship, having been in charge of Ipswich Town since 2012.

McCarthy was thrust into international management in 1996 after a four year stint with first club Millwall, and he would guide the Republic of Ireland to the 2002 World Cup Finals, albeit their tournament was overshadowed by Roy Keane heading home early.

McCarthy returned to club management with Sunderland in 2003 but could not stop a sinking ship being relegated from the Premier League before earning promotion straight back up.

However, McCarthy again struggled in the Premier League though and found himself back in the Championship with Wolves in 2006, before eventually winning the division in 2008/09, and then proceeding to keep the club in the top-flight for two straight seasons.

McCarthy was sacked in February 2012, and has since been plying his trade in the Championship with Ipswich Town.

Mick McCarthy Quotes

If Ipswich want to sack me, so be it, and if the fans are that sick of me then that makes life difficult for me at every game. When we win it's OK, and when we lose it's 'I'm getting sacked in the morning'.


No regrets, none at all. My only regret is that we went out on penalties. That's my only regret. But no, no regrets.


At the moment we've got 16 first team players. My initials stand for Mick McCarthy, not Merlin the Magician.
