Wolves boss McCarthy wary shopping at World Cup

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy will be wary buying players on the strength of their World Cup campaign.

McCarthy will be part of the BBC's team covering the game's most prestigious tournament in South Africa.

The former Republic of Ireland boss will be able to study closely any players who catch his eye as he looks to build on this first season back in the top flight.

But McCarthy is wary of players who might perform for their countries being a different proposition at club level.

He said: "I'm sure there will be plenty of managers, scouts and coaches watching players at the World Cup. But I'm not convinced it's the best place to view them. They might have great World Cups - and yet play differently for their countries than they do for their clubs."
