Cyprus' APOEL sack McCarthy after two months as coach

Cyprus' APOEL sack McCarthy after two months as coach

The former Wolves manager returned to the dugout in November when he signed for the Cypriot club.

61-year-old McCarthy handed 24-year-old Byrne his debut for the Republic of Ireland in 2019 and is believed to be a major fan of the young Dub who has been the best player in domestic football here for the past couple of seasons.

The former Ireland manager made his way to the Mediterranean in November but his spell has already come to a swift end.

They had lost their last four games in the Cypriot league.

Byrne joined up with McCarthy earlier this week after leaving Shamrock Rovers with the former Sunderland boss having given the midfielder his global debut with Ireland in September 2019.

But after just three wins from nine games in charge, the club have already dismissed McCarthy in what is a hammer blow to Byrne too.

With APOEL sat a lowly 11th in the Cypriot First Division, McCarthy has already been given the boot and it comes just two days after Ireland global Jack Byrne moved to the club from Shamrock Rovers - he made his debut in the 2-1 defeat at Doxa on Tuesday night.

The 61-year-old, who enjoyed a successful worldwide career with Ireland, also managed the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sunderland, Ipswich during his career in England. "It's like walking into a Championship club and I'd imagine some Premier League clubs would be delighted to have this facility".

"I wanted to get back coaching and managing, so I'm delighted to be here", he declared.
