Former Wolves boss McCarthy announced as Ipswich manager

Championship Ipswich Town have appointed former Wolves and Republic of Ireland boss Mick McCarthy as their new manager. The 53-year-old, who has also managed Millwall and Sunderland, was sacked as Wolves boss in February.

He will be assisted by his former number two at Wolves, Terry Connor, who succeeded him as manager at Molineux.

"I'm obviously delighted to have been given the job as Ipswich Town manager and I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead," McCarthy told the club website.

"It's a fantastic football club, with a proud tradition and history and a terrific fanbase. While the long term ambition is to take the club back into the Premier League, it's clear that the first priority is to get some confidence back into the team and start climbing the table."
