Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has been compared to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger by Neil Warnock.
McCarthy enjoyed a superb start to life as Blues boss, saving the club from relegation and then masterminding a play-off finish, but 18 months of stagnation has led to some fans calling for his head.
Warnock, whose Cardiff side host Town today, said: “We’ve had ups and downs in our careers, we’ve been at clubs and said ‘be careful what you wish for’.
“He’s a bit like Wenger, fans having a go at regular times, but he’s like me and doesn’t worry about the sack. If he left tomorrow he’d get a job the next week. So would I.”
Warnock, who is now at his 16th club as manager, said: “There’s been 14 managers sacked in the Championship this season now – how can you talk about building a project? We want to do well next season, but you don’t know in this game.

As you get older you don’t feel the pressure as much.”
