Cardiff City Football Club has confirmed that the team’s head coach, Mick McCarthy, and assistant coach, Terry Connor, have left the club by mutual agreement and effective immediately.
The news came after the Bluebirds suffered their eighth straight loss of the 2021-2022 season, leaving them 21st in the table, sitting one point above relegation spots.
Cardiff thanked the former Republic of Ireland manager, who had been in charge since January, for his services to the club.
Cardiff City Football Club has confirmed that first team coach Mick McCarthy has left
A statement from Cardiff read: “Cardiff City Football Club can confirm that first team coach Mick McCarthy and assistant coach Terry Connor have left the club by mutual agreement and effective immediately.
‘We would like to thank Mick and Terry for their efforts during their time with the Bluebirds and we wish them all the best for the future.
“Steve Morison and Tom Ramasut will oversee the duties of the first team at this time as the board of directors begins the process of appointing a permanent replacement.”

The decision to fire him came after Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Middlesborough (above).
McCarthy’s reign at the club started well, having not lost any of his first 11 games in charge after taking office in January.
He also guided Cardiff to the play-off spots, albeit briefly, after beating Bournemouth last season.
However, his luck changed after the summer, with the decision to fire him after Saturday’s loss.
Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Middlesborough marked the club’s six consecutive home losses, a new all-time low for the club.
As a result, Cardiff will now look for a new coach to guide the club for the next few months.
