Mick McCarthy: Confident he is still the right man to be in charge of Wolves
Mick McCarthy is confident he is still the right person to be in charge of Wolves after apologising for his team's performance in the 5-1 defeat by West Brom.
Wolves were humiliated by their local rivals in front of their own fans on Sunday and there was a demonstration outside Molineux by supporters after the game.
The result saw Wolves drop into the relegation zone on goal difference and raised further question marks over the future of McCarthy, who has been in charge since 2006.
However, while understanding why the fans were angry with the performance against West Brom, the former Republic of Ireland coach is determined to fight on.
When asked if he is still the right man for the job, McCarthy said: "I always feel I'm the right person to do it, absolutely.
"I always feel I'm the right person to do it, absolutely. Whatever the fans were saying, we deserve every bit of it, no problem."
