Mick McCarthy manager of Ipswich Town meets fans

Ipswich Town fans are reacting to reports linking Mick McCarthy with the Sheffield Wednesday manager's job.

The Sun claims Wednesday are aware of McCarthy's interest in the role, should it become available.

Its current incumbent, Jos Luhukay, has overseen a run of four successive defeats, yielding an aggregate score of 12-2.


McCarthy is out of work after leaving Ipswich towards the end of last season, after nearly six years in the job.

In that time, the experienced Yorkshireman led the Tractor Boys to a trio of top-half finishes, despite being provided with limited funding, having previously won promotions at Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
