BLUEBIRDS BOSS: Mick McCarthy hired as Cardiff City manager

BLUEBIRDS BOSS: Mick McCarthy hired as Cardiff City manager

 

Cardiff City have hired Mick McCarthy as their new manager following the sacking of Neil Harris.

Harris had guided the Bluebirds to the Championship playoffs last season but was dismissed after a run of six straight defeats.

Cardiff acted quickly and brought in McCarthy on a deal that will run until the end of the season.

The former Republic of Ireland manager is well accustomed to the Championship, having managed Sunderland, Wolves and Ipswich Town previously.

His last job was at APOEL in Cyprus but he was sacked after just eight games in charge having lost five of those games.

Cardiff City are 15th in the Championship and McCarthy's first game in charge will be against his hometown club Barnsley.

What are your thoughts on Mick McCarthy's arrival as Cardiff City manager?
