Mark Robins Back As City Manager

Last updated : 06 March 2017 By CNS Sport

Coventry City have confirmed this morning that Mark Robins is the new manager following the dismissal of Russell Slade yesterday.

Robins will be in charge for Saturday's game against Bradford City and could be City's manager in League 2 if he is not able to keep the Sky Blues in their current division.

Why Robins has returned to a club he walked out remains a mystery as the Sky Blues are in a far worse league position than when he walked out  to become the manager of Huddersfield Town.

Whether he will be given the tools for the job which Tony Mowbray and Russell Slade have said was denied them, also remains to be seen or he has been brought in by Otium Entertainment Group, who are rightly concerned about the number of season ticket holders who will not be renewing next season, but the 47 year old told Laura Hunter: "“I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to return to Coventry City FC and really excited by the challenge ahead.

 “I know the club well and it has been especially difficult to watch the struggles of this season from afar.  
“My aim is to provide a change of fortune for this football club in the long-term, and build a team not only for now, but for the future of Coventry City."
