Mick McCarthy says he will accept whatever decision Ipswich Town make on his future at the club.

If the club want to sack me, so be it, and if the fans are that sick of me then that makes life difficult for me at every game. When we win it’s OK, and when we lose it’s ‘I’m getting sacked in the morning’.
