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.
He believes that they would have some difficulties in getting new deals elsewhere and that it might be important for them to sign a new contract with Coventry City if they want to continue their football career.
He said that they could experience great difficulties to find a new club and this is why he is encouraging them to sign a new contract with Coventry.
He believes that there are already familiar with the manager as well as the staff and that they know the club better than anyone else. He said that going to a new club will mean that they will have to adapt to new players as well as coaching staff and this can be a major stumbling block for their progression.

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”

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”
