McCarthy snubs Bolton's advances
Sunday 14 October 2012
The search for a new manager at Bolton Wanderers continues after Mick McCarthy spurned the club's advances yesterday.
McCarthy had been the favourite to land the job at the Reebok Stadium, but the Trotters will now have to look elsewhere. There is speculation that the former Wolves manager – who was sacked at Molineux in February – could be in line for a return to Ireland in the aftermath of their humiliating 6-1 defeat against Germany on Friday. While reporting for international duty for the Irish, the Bolton midfielder Keith Andrews had claimed that he would prefer Roy Keane to be installed at the Reebok Stadium, but it is thought that the club will not approach him even though the post interests the 41-year-old.
The club, who have already been knocked back by Alan Curbishley and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, have held tentative talks with Portsmouth's manager Michael Appleton, while Billy Davies, Karl Robinson at MK Dons and Swindon's Paolo Di Canio have all been linked with the vacancy. In the meantime, the caretaker management team of Sammy Lee, Jimmy Phillips and Julian Darby are to be given an extended run in charge.
Liverpool will move a step closer to starting the redevelopment of Anfield tomorrow when the city council announce the go-ahead for a series of compulsory purchase order consultations on houses that would need to be demolished. The club's owner John Henry wants to remain at Anfield, rather than build a new ground in Stanley Park. If the process stays on schedule, redevelopment would begin in 2014.
