Wolves boss McCarthy loves proving his doubters wrong

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy loves proving people wrong.

McCarthy was willing to fight his own supporters recently after they turned on him in the 2-2 draw with Swansea.

That siege mentality - and the dry Yorkshire humour - was in evidence as he was inducted into the League Managers' Association Hall of Fame.

McCarthy said: "Did I ever think that growing up in Barnsley, Mick McCarthy, miserable as a seaside donkey at Blackpool, would ever end up doing what I am doing? No.

"And the reason for that was everybody was telling me I wouldn't be doing it. So to all those people - ha, ha, ha!"
