Mick McCarthy Quits As Ipswich Manager After Storming Out Of Press Conference

Mick McCarthy is no longer the manager of Ipswich Town, having resigned from the club with immediate effect.

Already due to quit at the end of the season, McCarthy brought his resignation forward by a few weeks in somewhat typical fashion – ending his Portman Road reign with a banging fist on a desk.

McCarthy’s furious reaction appeared to have been brought on by the reaction to the substitution of Barry Cotter. The former Limerick defender was, by all accounts, putting in a fine showing for Ipswich in his first start for the club, and the fans were quick to make their displeasure felt when Cotter was taken off and replaced Grant Ward just ten minutes into the second half.

Even the fact that Ipswich had actually won the match against Barnsley was clearly not enough to calm McCarthy down, and the former Ireland boss has walked out on his job with four games of the Champions League season still to play.

He has already been linked with the vacant post at West Bromwich Albion, with the Baggies almost certain to be relegated from the Premier League in the coming weeks.
