Mick McCarthy has signed a new two-year contract with Cardiff and will be the team's head coach until 2023.

The former Republic of Ireland boss initially replaced Neil Harris in January and was set to lead the team until the end of the season, but Cardiff's brilliant performance led the club's board to sign a new contract with the 62-year-old Englishman.

Cardiff are unbeaten in their last ten games and have won 7 matches.

In an interview with

Sky Sports

, McCarthy said: "

TC and I have enjoyed every minute of the time we've had at this great club so far and we're delighted to be staying. I'd like to thank Vincent for offering us the opportunity to do that


"The players have responded to us over these past 10 games in the manner we hoped they would, and it's a pleasure working with them each day in training.

"Credit to them for the efforts they've put in so far and the results they've earned. They're enjoying it and deservedly so. I'm very much looking forward to the future."

Chairman Vincent Tan said: "

Mick and Terry have done a fantastic job over these past two months and I'm thrilled that they will be staying with us longer term


"Mick is an experienced and respected manager whose work ethic, discipline and honesty I respect and admire. I am confident that he is the right man for our club and the right man to take us forward.

"I'm sure that our supporters are enjoying what they're seeing from their team again and will echo my sentiments and sincerest best wishes to Mick and Terry."
