London - Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday sacked manager Mick McCarthy a day after their 5-1 home loss to West Bromwich Albion.

Former Republic of Ireland international McCarthy, 53, took over at the club in 2006, guiding them to the Premier League in 2009.

But the club have won just one of their last 11 Premier League games and are now 18th in the standings after a Peter Odemwingie hat-trick inspired West Brom in the Black Country derby at Molineux on Sunday.

"The board took the difficult decision after a run of form which has seen Wolves pick up 14 points in the last 22 league games," read a club statement.

"Terry Connor will take charge of team training in the interim until a new manager is appointed."

The statement added: "The board would like to place on record their sincere thanks and appreciation to Mick McCarthy and he leaves with the very best wishes of everyone connected to the club."
