Wolves boss McCarthy has complaints after Cup defeat

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy had no complaints over his players after their Carling Cup defeat to 10-man Manchester United.

"We have been in the Premier League for three months," he said.

"That doesn't make us a Premier League team. We are a football club that has got itself into the Premier League and for most of the time we have competed.

"Manchester United are arguably the best team in Europe. Liverpool have a similar set-up, and Arsenal.

"We are snotty-nosed kids coming up from the Championship.

"Is it a case of us coming up here and having our bellies tickled and for them to say, 'thanks for coming'?

"I don't like that. But it is part of the learning process."
