Wolves show door to manager McCarthy

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC have dismissed Mick McCarthy after Sunday's 5-1 derby defeat by West Bromwich Albion FC left them with 14 points from their last 22 league games.

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC have parted company with manager Mick McCarthy in the wake of Sunday's 5-1 derby home defeat by West Bromwich Albion FC.

The loss left Wolves third from bottom in the Premier League, with a promising start to the season long forgotten following a run of 14 points from 22 league games. It spelled the end for McCarthy, a former Republic of Ireland player and manager, who departs after five-and-a-half years at the helm. He guided them to the second division title in 2008/09. His assistant Terry Connor will assume temporary charge.
