Mick McCarthy has said he would never rule out a return to Wolves but is looking forward to a fresh challenge.
It has been suggested that McCarthy could make a stunning return to the club that sacked him last month so he could help the current manager Terry Connor try and steer the side to safety.
Since McCarthy was axed and replaced by his assistant Wolves have picked up just one single solitary point and they sit at the foot of the Premier League table with relegation becoming more and more likely.
That has lead to all sorts of speculation of who could come in and replace or assist Connor and the latest name is that of the former boss.
McCarthy says stranger things have happened but he does not anticipate a return to Molineux.
He told Talksport:"I would never say never, that is all I can say" he said. "Stranger things have happened. Carlos Tevez played for Manchester City on Saturday.
"But I think that is a challenge for somebody else, I have done my time. I would never say never and someday it may happen but I don't think that is going to be the case now and I am looking forward to a fresh challenge as well."
