LUFC Bates - We have not approached McCarthy
Leeds United chairman Ken Bates says he has not made an approach for Mick McCarthy this week despite suggestions otherwise.
McCarthy was amongst the favourites for the vacant manager`s job before his sacking by Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday and following his sacking he was quickly moved into favourite for the job.
Bates says that he has not approach McCarthy regarding the job let alone offer it to him.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, 'On Tuesday, a national newspaper said we had already approached McCarthy and offered him the job.
'I don't know where McCarthy lives or what his telephone number is. It's just speculation gone mad.'
Another man who has been amongst the favourites has also found himself out of a job today.
Lee Clark was one of the early favourites to replace Simon Grayson and he has been sacked by League One side Huddersfield Town today following their home defeat to Sheffield United on Tuesday night.
