McCarthy ‘not interested’ in Barton comments directed at Wolves’ Henry

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy says he is not going to get involved in a war of words between his midfielder Karl Henry and QPR captain Joey Barton.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy says he is not going to get involved in a war of words between his midfielder Karl Henry and QPR captain Joey Barton.

The R’s midfielder had a go at Henry following the weekends clash, saying the ex-Wolves skipper went around ‘trying to hurt people’ but McCarthy says he doesn’t want to know anything about the disagreement after Henry defended himself from Barton’s comments.

“I haven’t read the comments and I’m not interested – that’s why I’m not getting involved,” McCarthy said.

“You will not get me dignifying any of the comments with a response because it would be wrong.

“I generally like to say things to people’s faces. We’re playing Millwall tomorrow and it’s probably come at a good time having played as badly as we did against QPR.

“That’s the important issue of my day.

“I am as disinterested in discussing any comments as anyone you will find.

“Karl is one of the best professionals I have ever worked with, in terms of what he does professionally.

“He has never gone out to hurt anyone.”
