Mick McCarthy has been sacked by APOEL, according to a report by talkSPORT.
The European side have dismissed him after just two months in charge there. McCarthy, who is 61 years old, was handed a route back into the dugout by the Cypriot First Division giants but has now become available again. He signed a deal until 2022 as he and his assistant, Terry Connor, embarked on a Mediterranean adventure. However, both have now been sacked after four losses in a row. He even signed former Football League duo Joe Garner and Jack Byrne for them.
