Ipswich Town considering a move for experienced 56-year-old to replace McCarthy

Steve McClaren is on Ipswich Town’s radar, with the Sky Bet Championship club considering appointing the 56-year-old to replace Mick McCarthy.

According to reliable journalist Alan Nixon, McClaren tops Ipswich’s wanted list, as they plan big changes in the dugout ahead of next season.

McCarthy has been with Ipswich since 2012, overseeing well over 200 fixtures for the Portman Road club.

However, the former promotion winner has failed to inspire Ipswich to a serious promotion push regularly enough, and this year, the club are drifting towards a mid-table finish.

The club are considering a change in the summer, with McClaren in the running.

The former England boss hasn’t managed in the Sky Bet Championship for over a year now, with McClaren’s last spell in the division coming with Derby County, who moved to sack him in March 2017.

That spell at Pride Park with Derby was McClaren’s second, having led the Rams to the 2014 play-off final during his first stint with the club.

Most recently in McClaren’s career, the 56-year-old was part of Maccabi Tel Aviv’s set-up.

The Verdict  

McCarthy’s time with Ipswich has turned slowly sour, with the manager and fanbase not pulling in the same direction at this point.

A change in the summer might be best for both parties, and Ipswich are clearly looking for experience by targeting McClaren.

Of course, McClaren has experience, but Ipswich’s supporters will be well aware of his previous record at Derby.
