Wolves sack Mick McCarthy – Alan Curbishley could replace him
Wolverhampton Wanderers were humiliated at home to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday and it was no surprise on Monday morning when Steve Morgan and Jez Moxey decided that Mick McCarthy was no longer the man to lead them forward.

McCarthy could well become the next manager of Leeds United, having previously steered Wolves into the Premier League, although the Molineux club now have less than a fortnight to appoint a permanent manager.
That is presuming that the Midlands club want someone in charge for the visit to Newcastle United on 25 February, with Alan Curbishley having thrown his hat into the ring just hours after the McCarthy story broke.
There are a long list of other managers being linked with the vacant post, including Ian Holloway, Steve Bruce and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Wolves released a statement which read: “Wolves have today announced that manager, Mick McCarthy, has left the club with immediate effect.
“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.
“Terry Connor will take charge of team training in the interim until a new manager is appointed.
“The Board would like to place on record their sincere thanks and appreciation to Mick McCarthy and he leaves with the very best wishes of everyone connected to the club.”
