Mick McCarthy has lost his job as manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers after a poor run of results.

Wolves are sitting in the relegation zone of the Premier League, having won only one of their last 13 matches.

The sacking came immdiately after a heavy 5-1 defeat to local rivals West Bromwich Albion.

Favourites to replace McCarthy, who has been at Wolves for five years, are ex-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez and ex-West Ham United manager Alan Curbishley.

We don't think Mick is in line for the England manager's job just yet though...
