Mick McCarthy signs new City deal!
We are very happy to announce that Mick McCarthy has signed a new two-year contract with Cardiff City Football Club until the summer of 2023. Assistant Manager Terry Connor has also committed his future to the Bluebirds until that time.
Having taken over at Cardiff City Stadium in January, Mick and Terry have steered the club to seven wins and three draws from the ten games that have been played under their stewardship. It has been an emphatic upturn in form that has evoked a renewed sense of optimism throughout the club and our fanbase.
Speaking to cardiffcityfc.co.uk on Thursday, Mick said: “TC and I have enjoyed every minute of the time we’ve had at this great club so far and we’re delighted to be staying. I’d like to thank Vincent for offering us the opportunity to do that.
“The players have responded to us over these past ten games in the manner we hoped they would, and it’s a pleasure working with them each day in training. Credit to them for the efforts they’ve put in so far and the results they’ve earned. They’re enjoying it and deservedly so. I’m very much looking forward to the future.”
Tan Sri Vincent Tan said of the news: “Mick and Terry have done a fantastic job over these past two months and I’m thrilled that they will be staying with us longer term.
“Mick is an experienced and respected manager whose work ethic, discipline and honesty I respect and admire. I am confident that he is the right man for our club and the right man to take us forward.
“I’m sure that our supporters are enjoying what they’re seeing from their team again and will echo my sentiments and sincerest best wishes to Mick and Terry.”
