Coventry City captain Carl Becker has said that he is very much impressed with the managerial abilities of Steven Pressley, who has been able to get the club into the a positive points difference. Coventry started the season with negative points after going into administration. The massive 10 point penalty given to the club has lifted them on the 22nd position in the table, but it has largely been due to the good form of the club at the start of the season. Becker has worked under several managers in recent years, and he has said that Pressley is the most impressive of the lot.
The 30-year-old has also played under high-profile managers like Chris Coleman, who is currently the national team manager of Wales. At a recent fans meeting, Becker said that the man management skills of Pressley is second to none, and his passion and enthusiasm rubs onto the squad as well. Coventry went on a run of six matches without defeat before suffering back-to-back defeats in the league. The 3-2 defeat against Port Vale has been followed by a 2-0 defeat against Brentford, but the 30-year-old is confident that the club will be able to return to winning ways when they take on Stevenage during the weekend.
“I’ve played under a lot of top managers throughout my career but the gaffer is for me the best out of all of them. His man-to-man management skills are fantastic. When you wake up in the morning you’re excited driving into training and the atmosphere around the training ground is unbelievable. You can see how passionate both him and Neil (McFarlane) are on the sideline during a game. At the minute it’s an absolute pleasure to be playing for this club and under the manager,” said Baker after the Brentford match.
