Mick McCarthy has adamantly refused to resign as manager of Ipswich Town, he revealed in an interview with BBC Radio Suffolk.
The 57-year-old manager has come under fire from the Portman Road faithful recently, following a run of bad results and underwhelming performances.
The East Anglian outfit needed a very late equaliser to earn a point at home to rock bottom Rotherham on the weekend. Prior to that game, they had only scored in one of their previous seven matches.
As a result, the poor run of form leaves the Tractor Boys in 16th place, having scored just 12 goals in 15 games.
There have been a number of Ipswich fans calling for the long-serving boss to step down after four years at the helm.
The former Republic of Ireland and Wolves manager, however, says that he will not leave the club unless he is sacked. His target while at Ipswich has always been promotion though seems to have always fallen short in the last few seasons.
“The supporters carry a lot of weight, and people coming to watch want to see better football and better results”, he said.
“But I’m going to stay round here and try to make that happen. I’m certainly not going anywhere of my own volition.”
Ipswich fans – what do you think? Is it time for McCarthy to move on? Do you owe him more loyalty and a chance to get out of this rut? Who could you get as a replacement?
