Mick McCarthy to leave Ipswich Town

Former Republic of Ireland boss Mick McCarthy will leave Ipswich Town at the end of the season by mutual agreement.

It's not the abuse that has forced me out.

"I won't be leaving with any regrets". He saved us from that and then took us to the Play-Offs within two years. It's not everybody, that comment is for the people who have been doing it and actually it has been, I think, ruining games at Portman Road and making it hard for the players to play.

McCarthy is the longest-serving manager in the Championship having taken over the reins at the Suffolk club in 2012 following spells with Sunderland and Wolves.

My shift here is done. I've worked with a modest budget and had some success, like the play-offs in 2015.

Ipswich now sit in 12th in the Championship, 10 points off the playoff places.

However McCarthy's relationship with the fans has become strained in recent years, and owner Marcus Evans revealed on Monday an announcement would made about the manager's future.

"Although the league is a different prospect now from when I first invested in the club more than 10 years ago". Ipswich look secure again in mid-table with eight games left.

"He has also been instrumental in developing our youth policy and has overseen the progress of a number of our young players from the Academy into the first-team and nurtured their development in line with the Club's strategy".

"Mick and I had a discussion and we both agreed that this was the best way forward for him and for Ipswich Town".

"I remain as determined as ever to see Ipswich Town back in the Premier League". They sit in 12th place. The former Middlesbrough, West Bromwich Albion and Coventry City boss would be unlikely to leave for Ipswich should Blackburn get promoted into the same division.
