Mick Mcarthy uses PowerPoint to make a refereeing point

He’s no stranger to motivational speeches before a match or at half-time–either as a former player or as a manager. But Mick McCarthy, the Wolverhampton Wanderers manager, has found a new ally for his post-match presentations.

Clearly upset with a refereeing decision that went the wrong way for his player, Nenad Milijas, in a match on Boxing Day his manager explained the decision to waiting journalists with a PowerPoint presentation.

The unfortunate Milijas earned a red card and left the field after his tackle of an Arsenal player in the keenly-contested fixture.

Using the multimedia facility within PowerPoint he demonstrated the offending tackle to his audience of journalists and asked:

Anyone think it’s a sending off? I’ve asked loads of people.

His presentation was in vain as the FA disciplinary panel has decided against a review of the sending-off.

But Wolves salvaged a 1-1 draw securing a coveted point away from home. Now with that sort of rallying performance perhaps Mick might consider some further motivational speeches for the squad.
