Mick McCarthy slams Wolves fans

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has slated the section of the club’s fans who chanted for him to be sacked in the 2-2 draw with Swansea at the weekend, and has stated that their abuse had nothing to do with the Molineux side coming back from 2-0 down.

Disgruntled fans sung “you’re getting sacked in the morning” at the Wolves manager and also singled out specific players for criticism after the second Swansea goal, but McCarthy has hit back at the sceptical supporters.

“Let me clear something up. It (the negative support) doesn’t help. Let’s not give them any credit,” he told Sky Sports.

“Let’s not give any of the dissenting voices, the mindless idiots that do it, any credit whether it’s aimed at me, Karl Henry, Andy Keogh or Stephen Ward.

“Do not give them any credence or any credit for getting us playing well or getting a result. They don’t deserve any of that. There was no credit given to any of them at all for the 2-2 draw.

“I’m taking the credit, getting Jamie O’Hara further up the pitch, the players that went on and the attitude they had.

“We’ve a great spirit amongst us but I always worry in saying that, in giving them (the fans) some sort of back-handed compliment that they have generated a good team spirit and a siege mentality.

“They haven’t. All they do is destroy it. It is destructive and no good to me or anyone else,” he concluded.

Wolves have been in a poor run of form and have only recorded two victories so far this season; their task will not get any easier at the weekend as they travel to take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
