McCarthy Set For APOEL Nicosia
Friday, 30th Oct 2020 13:36
Former Blues boss Mick McCarthy is close to being appointed the new manager of Cypriot side APOEL Nicosia.
McCarthy, 61, left his previous job as head coach of the Republic of Ireland - his second stint in the role - in April. He left the Blues after five and a half years in April 2018.
A tweet from APOEL revealed McCarthy would watch their weekend fixture and hold talks.
“The company APOEL Football informs that it expects the Irish coach Mick McCarthy tomorrow in Cyprus, so that the discussions regarding the possibility of cooperation are completed,” it read.
“Mr McCarthy will be at the GSP Stadium to watch the APOEL-Apollon match.”

Well at least when he goes to Cyprus this weekend he'll have to quarantine when he gets back. That will keep his boring tones off the telly for 14 days

While I know there is bad blood with Mick, I'm thankful for the job he did keeping us at a semi decent level of UK football. The hand he was dealt was terrible and worked wonders keeping us in the championship. With the kids coming through and a few of his gem finds, under him, we'd have a shot at the Championship now.
It was that Paul#1 character that killed us. Paul#2 i think will get us there too, just taking the scenic root!
Good luck Mick!

Well for APOEL supporters sake lets hope they're in the same situation as us in the UK i.e. no supporters allowed in the ground - they won't be missing much!

Best of luck M.m , you proved you’d excellent judgement whilst you were here ; brought in some real talent , brought on and encouraged many youngsters AND generated some appreciable income when players were sold on .
If only at that stage ME had appreciated just what rewards a proper reinvestment would have brought , then quite possibly ITFC would have made the Premiership .
As a person then throughout the Club and at the Academy you were enormously valued ,and maintained respect ,discipline and moral standards : let’s wish you well in whatever you choose to do ,and know you’ll have uncomplicated and uncompromised values to instill .
Best wishes .
