Ipswich Town Part Ways With Mick McCarthy Earlier Than Expected: This Is How Twitter Reacted!

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has decided to leave the club with immediate effect. The club has confirmed on their website that the 59-year-old has left the club after the Tractor Boys secured a narrow 1-0 victory over Barnsley on Tuesday night.

This development comes after the Suffolk outfit announced that they will part ways with the Republic of Ireland manager at the end of the season, putting an end to his six-year stay at the Portman Road. In an interview with the club’s website, McCarthy was quoted to have said, “I said I would see the season out but it’s been a new experience and it’s not one I have been enjoying, to be honest,”

“I have continued to do my job to the best of my ability but there is something missing and I’m not comfortable with that.

“I have had a great time here and worked with some great people and to all those who have given me wonderful support over the last five and a half years – and there are many – I want to put on record my personal thanks.”

Some Ipswich fans saw the lighter side of the breaking story.

Here is Mick McCarthy’s tale of the tape at Portland Road.

Some supporters were delving into the past for what could have been.

Some pundits defended McCarthy’s tenure at Ipswich.

One Ipswich supporter took a dig at Leeds United.

Ipswich Town are currently lying in 12th position in the Skybet Championship table and are not in any danger of getting dragged into the relegation dogfight going into the final few matches of the campaign. The departure of Mick McCarthy could leave them a bit vulnerable unless the Tractor Boys act quickly to replace him. However, they have nothing left to play for which means that the club can take some time to hire their ideal candidate in the summer.
