BERLIN (Reuters) - APOEL Nicosia on Monday unveiled former Ireland manager Mick McCarthy as their new coach on a 19-month contract to May 2022, the Cyprus club said.

McCarthy, a former Ireland international, twice coached Ireland as well as Sunderland, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Ipswich in England.

McCarthy's assistant Terry Connor is also brought in, the club said in a statement.

APOEL, the island's most successful club, are currently in 10th place in the Cypriot First Division with two wins from eight matches after a poor start to the season.
