I've Outlasted Two England Managers - Thorn

Last updated : 30 October 2011 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has commented that he has outlasted two England mangers.

So far this season four managers in Sean O'Driscoll, Keith Millen, Steve McLaren and Sven Goran Erikksson have been sacked or parted company with Championship clubs and Thorn, who was favourite amongst some bookies to get the sack first, says that in one way he is pleased to have outlasted them.

Speaking to the CT's Alan Poole, Thorn said about Erikkson who was sacked last Monday from Leicester City: "Sven's a nice man, a gentleman,

"He drank all my red win but he was very complimentary about me, my players and our football club, the route we are going down and the way we are trying to play the game. Everyone knew he wouldn't get long to achieve success because of the money he spent.

"It would be nice to have £10m to play with because I know where we'd be in the table, that's for sure.

"But I'm just pleased in one way to have outlasted them because i was favourite to get the sack at the start of the season and I've already seen off two England managers!"
