Football | APOEL Nicosia sack Mick McCarthy after two months
APOEL Nicosia have sacked manager Mick McCarthy after just nine matches.
The former Republic of Ireland manager took charge of the club in November but failed to record a victory as manager of the Cypriot club, who have lost their last four matches.
APOEL - the most successful club in Cyprus - are now just one point clear of the relegation zone with two games in hand.
"The company APOEL FOOTBALL (PUBLIC) LTD announces the end of its co-operation with coach Mick McCarthy," a club statement read.
"We wish Mr. McCarthy and his assistant Terry Connor good luck."
McCarthy's dismissal comes just two days after Ireland international Jack Byrne's debut off the bench for APOEL in a 2-1 away defeat to Dova.
Next up for APOEL, who have now gone through 14 managers in five years, is a home meeting with Ermis Aradippou on Saturday.
