Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy would love to return to International management in the future.
It might sound a daft thing to come out with after well taken point at Spurs, but we as supporters of course never really get the true context of what is said in interviews in the written press.
We get a few selected paragraphs in response to what in the main is a never to be revealed question.
The problem with this is you are left wondering why the comment was made and they often come out of the blue.
This is a prime example of what I'm talking about.
McCarthy obviously didn't come out wanting to reveal his ambitions, he's just answered the questions put to him.
"It`s a wonderful thing to do, I did it at 36 and that`s a ridiculously young age to be doing it but I was a success at it and I loved it. I enjoy being in the Barclays Premier League more to be honest but it`s something I`d like to do again at some stage, another international job. The big games are just amazing." our Mick told the Sunday Mercury.
McCarthy was of course speaking about his time as Republic of Ireland manager between February 1996 and November 2002 where he led Ireland to the World Cup in 2002.
He continued: "I took it at a very young age and took the view I might never get the opportunity again. I took it and enjoyed it. I`d be better equipped to do it now, of course.
"I`d like to do an international job again, but not now or in the near future. I`m only 52.
"But the opportunity might arise because I did it once and was a success doing it."
In December 2007 McCarthy was shortlisted for the South Korean job but turned down the chance to speak to them because he was committed to getting Wolves into the Premier League.
Four years on McCarthy remains as committed as before to keeping us there.
Vital Wolves Comment: For me, it's not great timing to come out and say that you are looking at your career beyond Wolves.
He's come under heavy criticism from some supporters for months/years and has just been given public backing from owner Steve Morgan and Chief Executive Jez Moxey.
I understand what he's trying to say, but will his comments just give some supports the ammunition to try and claim that he isn't dedicated to the Wanderers cause?
