Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy insists he's been able to stay in the role for so long because he has done a "really good job" at the Championship club.
McCarthy is the longest-serving boss in the division, having been appointed at Portman Road in 2012.
However, he's come under increasing pressure from some fans this season with Town currently languishing in 16th place - seven points above the relegation zone.
Despite calls for his head from certain supporters, McCarthy maintains that his team have done well with limited resources.
McCarthy also admitted he was "sad" to see Norwich City boss Alex Neil get the sack, but added that his dismissal shows how quickly things can change.
"Having been promoted and done a great job, everybody thought he was great," McCarthy said.
"Just 18 months on, he's out of work again so I'm always sad to see it. On the other side of that, if managers didn't go, the ones who were out of work would never get another job.
"I've been the lucky recipient on a few occasions when I've got a job when somebody's left."
