Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has hinted he may leave before the end of the season after admitting he isn’t enjoying the current situation.
The Tractor Boys announced last week that the former Ireland boss would be leaving in the summer and they have picked up just one point from the two games since.
Since the news was revealed, speculation has been intense about who will replace McCarthy and the experienced manager told the BBC that he is struggling in the current environment.
“There’s a little bit of me that’s died, I’m not going to tell a lie. I’m doing this for my own personal pride and for the lads.”
“I’ve never been in a driverless car and I never want to go in one – but I would imagine it feels like how I’m feeling at the moment. The responsibility is mine. I’m still in charge of it but I’m not in total control of it.”
The Suffolk side have six games left this season, starting with a trip to Brentford on Saturday.
It’s a difficult position for McCarthy to be in, although you can uncerstand why Ipswich announced the news as they look to attract fans back to Portman Road.
Despite criticism over his style of play, McCarthy has done a very good job at Ipswich in terms of results and deserves a better send-off than the way it is going.
Given those comments it seems possible that he may walk in the coming days which would be a bad way for it to end.
