Former Coventry City captain Sam Ricketts have urged some players to sign a new contract with the club during the transfer window.


Indeed there are seven players that will be out of contract at the end of the current season and Ricketts have encouraged them to pen a new deal.

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”
