According to Sky Sports News, Mick McCarthy is interested in once again becoming the manager of the Republic of Ireland. The former Ipswich Town and Wolves boss has been out of work since leaving Portman Road last summer, and many fans have been wondering what his next move in football could be.
McCarthy managed the Irish between 1996 and 2002, and during that time, he led them to the FIFA World Cup where they enjoyed a really successful campaign.
He is said to have turned down offers abroad in China and Qatar as of late, although there are still many teams across English football who would consider taking him on.
McCarthy would be taking over from Martin O’Neill who left his post earlier today alongside Roy Keane – the latter of whom Mick had a notable bust up with during the aforementioned 2002 WC. We don’t need to tell you the irony on display there.
