It hurts because it means we are not at the level we should be says boss

Mick McCarthy says criticism he has received from some sections of the Town support recently has hurt him in that it means his team is not getting the results it should be getting. 

Speaking to Ipswich Player HD in an exclusive and extensive interview as he went past the four year mark as Town boss, Mick said: “I'd rather it wasn't happening obviously but the criticism doesn’t hurt in terms of upsetting me personally. It hurts because it means I am not getting the results I think we should be getting.

“It hurts that because of the way we are playing and the results we are getting, it is causing some fans to react in the way they have. 

“I understand the frustration from the supporters. It’s up to us to turn that around. Only we can do that.”
