Wolves have terminated Mick McCarthy’s contract following the humiliating 5-1 home defeat to Black Country rivals West Brom on Sunday.
McCarthy and his team were booed off the pitch after the loss and the club decided it was time for a change at the top, with Neil Warnock at 10/1 with bookmaker to succeed the former Republic of Ireland boss. Steve Bruce and Alan Curbishley are joint 4/1 favourites to take the hot seat.
A club statement confirmed: “The Board took the difficult decision to terminate Mick’s contract after a run of form which has seen Wolves pick up only 14 points in the last 22 League games, after a promising start to the season, culminating in yesterday’s 5-1 defeat at home to West Bromwich Albion.”
McCarthy took up the reins at Molineux in July 2006 and oversaw promotion to the Premier League in 2009.
