Mick McCarthy could be someone who is in contention to take the vacant Derby County manager’s job.
His style of play and the perceived lack of progress were the main issues because his style is results-based, so it provides little without that key element.
He is vastly experienced and used to working within financial constraints, so he could be the ideal manager to come in and get the best out of the resources at Derby’s disposal next season.
There is certainly a talented squad there and they managed to finish in the play-offs last season. Gary Rowett will be hard to replace, but not many managers can match McCarthy’s ability as a short-term solution.
We, at Football League World, posed the question to Derby fans of whether they would like Mick McCarthy to be their next manager in this tweet:
Mick McCarthy is available and ready for a new job… ????
Derby County fans… Would you take McCarthy as Rowett's replacement? ????
