Steve Bruce was sacked as manager of Aston Villa on Wednesday, after a poor start to the Championship season left the Villains 13th in the table after 11 games.
Since the club made the decision to replace the 57-year-old, the rumour mill surrounding who will replace Bruce at the helm has cranked into life, with names like John Terry and Thierry Henry being thrown into the mix.
Another slightly less exotic option would be Ireland's Mick McCarthy, with the 59-year-old without a job since leaving Ipswich at the end of last season.
McCarthy appeared on Virgin Media Sport's coverage of the Champions League and presenter Tommy Martin asked the pundit whether he would be interested in taking the job. His answer was emphatic:
Absolutely I would. It's a fabulous club of course I would. He's only just gone today and I've been sat here doing this... I haven't had my CV put in anyway. But I would do it, it's a great club.
Tommy Martin then revealed to McCarthy that Thierry Henry was in front of the former Ireland boss with the bookies and McCarthy couldn't help but having a little dig at the Frenchman:
He shouldn't be a favourite in front of me, I can tell you that.
I'm sorry, I'm blowing me own trumpet here.
Mick McCarthy confirms he WOULD be interested in the Aston Villa job.
And says he should be ahead of Thierry Henry in the bookies. ?#VMSport#AVFCpic.twitter.com/MDUv0gqudH
