Stability vital for a manager, says Ipswich boss McCarthy

Mick McCarthy believes having a stable club around you is vital for every manager, and the Ipswich Town boss is thankful for having a well-run organisation around him.

McCarthy was appointed at Portman Road in early November, replacing former Wigan Athletic and Derby County manager Paul Jewell, who left with the club bottom of the Championship. McCarthy has since taken the Tractor Boys out of the relegation zone, and believes having the importance of having the backing of the owner cannot be underestimated.


He said: “It is vital. One of the questions people always ask is why did I take the job? It’s because I met Marcus Evans, the owner, who is a great guy and he has supported the previous managers before me.


The club is very stable financially because of Marcus’ backing and then within that I am dealing with one man who makes the decisions which is great.


McCarthy added that thanks to his good relationship with Evans he can feel secure in his job - a luxury not always afforded to his counterparts at other clubs. And yet, McCarthy insists that bond will not save his job if the team does not perform.


Having a good relationship with the owner or chairman is vital. Stability helps, it’s a nightmare if there are rumours of a takeover happening and you losing your job all the time,” McCarthy said.


I am delighted to be here working in stability but you still have to get results because that is what determines your future.
