Coventry City coach threatens to quit

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has threatened to resign from his post if the team doesn’t end their winless league run.

Mowbray has been in charge for 18 months, and after the draw played with AFC Wimbledon, Mowbray said: “I won’t be a burden to this club. I think I’m an honourable guy, and I won’t be around too long if we’re not winning. I won’t expect to be paid. I know this club needs every penny.”

After ten League One games, City are bottom of the log. The former Celtic coach took Coventry to the top of the League One just few months back, but fortunes have quickly changed. Mowbray took charge in March 2015 but after frustration in the summer transfer market, it seems he would take a walk. There have been continued protests from the club’s supporters against the club owners. Happenings are taking its toll on the players as only five goals have been scored in ten games. City have played six draws, and it seems the issues with the club would not end anytime soon.

“Let’s see what the next few hours, days bring. The table doesn’t lie. It’s embarrassing to go 10 games without a win,” Mowbray added. On the next move for the club, Mowbray said he would consult with the technical director Mark Venus. He said he was not a quitter by nature, so he would try his best with the team. He revealed that he has spoken to the players.

“They’re babies in a man’s league. I probably let them down by not getting the right defender in who could have been a man and help us keep clean sheets. But we know what the budget is, and we didn’t get our targets,” said Mowbray.
