COVENTRY STEWARDS NO LONGER HAPPY

A steward of the club that has been serving the football club for a long time seems not as impressed with the club anymore.


In an interview with the Telegraph, he said he joined the club because he was comfortable with leaving the fans with a happy face after each game but added that that feeling was no longer existent with the happenings at the club as it is run by London hedge fund Sisu.

“As a steward of 12 year, the recent stories, complaints and rumoursare very hurtful. When I joined, I joined a happy band of stewards and 99 percent were there because of their love for Coventry City Football Club, not for the money, and it was satisfying to see supporters go home with a smile on their face and you went home looking forward to the next home game,” he started out.

He continued saying he could not go when the club started playing home games from out of the city. He said he was happy when there were talks of a return, but with the a Premiership Rugby team coming to Richoh, it angered the fans. Continue reading “COVENTRY STEWARDS NO LONGER HAPPY”

COVENTRY COACH ASKS REDA TO PROVE HIS FITNESS

Head coach of Coventry City FC, Tony Mowbray, challenges powerhouse defender Reda Johnson to prove his fitness.


The Sky Blues boss insists he has left the door ajar for the player to continue his career at the club. He says the player would to prove his fitness before he entertained the possibility of offering him fresh terms at the Ricoh Arena.

Mowbray included the 28-year-old centre-half in his clear-out of ten out-of-contract players on Monday but the Benin international will complete his rehabilitation from a season-ending muscle tear at Ryton and is welcome to join pre-season training if he hasn’t found himself another club by the time the squad reports back in July. The manager said:

“The possibility is still there and Reda knows that.

“Reda needs to get fit and go to the market and if there are clubs there who are willing to pay him what he thinks he’s worth then good luck to him. There’s no offer on the table. He has to get fit first.

“He is going to train here and work until he’s fit to play and if he needs to he’ll join in the pre-season. It depends how long it’s going to take him to get fit.

“At this moment he’s not sure. He’s been training for a good month or so but he just needs to get the power back in his hamstring. The muscle has healed and he needs to get the power and get the nerves working and mobilised again.

“We’re happy to do that for him, allow him to continue his rehabilitation and then he has to prove some sort of fitness. So if it is then going through pre-season and he wants to do that here I am not averse to that and then on the back of that we will see.” Continue reading “COVENTRY COACH ASKS REDA TO PROVE HIS FITNESS”

Donnell is a goal-keeper while all the others are defenders and have already started training with their new club which is aiming to get back into the English Championship League.

Coventry City need to find another Defender

The importance of defender Reda Johnson within Coventry City’s squad cannot be stressed enough. The talismanic defender plays a vital role in getting the club organised on the pitch.

In his absence, Coventry have managed just one victory in the league and this has been a major reason towards their slip down the League One table. Recognising this aspect, manager Steven Pressley admitted that Johnson could not come back to the first-team sooner.

He has also acknowledged that the 26-year-old, who was featured in only 13 matches this season, needs to come back fully fit and not rushed back from the hamstring injury that is keeping him out.

He revealed that Johnson has trained with the team yesterday and he is likely to be in contention for the trip to face Yeovil Town during the weekend. The 26-year-old has been missing from the first-team action for the last six matches. Continue reading “Coventry City need to find another Defender”
