Welcome break for Wolves boss

01 March 2010 05:40
The Wolves boss has parted with 14 members of his squad this week as international action returns to the fore.[LNB]While most managers are reluctant to see their most prized assets head off for friendly duty, with injuries a constant threat, McCarthy has no such concerns.[LNB]With Wolves still stuck in the midst of a Premier League relegation battle, he feels a break from the stresses of domestic endeavour will help to clear the mind and realign focus ahead of a crunch clash with title-chasing Manchester United on Saturday.[LNB]"It was always going to be a big job to survive even when we started 27 games ago in August, and it remains a big job," McCarthy told the club's official website.[LNB]"We're still out of the bottom three and we're still playing well but that can be difficult when you're playing well and not getting anything - it can be demoralising.[LNB]"A lot of them are away now for internationals but maybe that will be a sort of break and they'll come back feeling mentally refreshed.[LNB]"Perhaps not physically, because they'll be playing, but mentally it might help to go to a different environment for a few days.[LNB]"Then we've got Manchester United at our place and that's no foregone conclusion."[LNB][LNB] Barclays Premier League Relegation 2009/2010 Win Outright: Wolves 11/8
