Coventry City part company with Tony Mowbray
In an official club statement Coventry City today (Thursday 29th September) announced that Tony Mowbray has resigned as Coventry City manager, ending his 20 month spell at the Ricoh Arena.
The statement went on to say: ' Without a win in the first ten league games, Tony felt on professional level that he was no longer able to take the club forward.
'Coventry City FC would like to thank Tony for all his energy and dedication over the past 18 months. We would also like to wish Tony all the very best for the future and put on record that he will always be welcome at the football club."
Confirming his resignation, Mowbray said: “I spoke to Mark Venus after the game (The 2-2 draw with AFC Wimbledon) and spoke to Joy Seppala this morning.
“I’m back home in Middlesbrough, took the kids to school this morning.
“I came to get this club out of this league and it looks like that’s not possible.
"We haven’t, ultimately, got the ingredients to do what I came to do so I think someone else needs to have a go
“Ten games, bottom line, the pride in me says that’s unacceptable. Let someone else have a go at it.'
Coventry are bottom of EFL1 - their lowest league position for over 60 years.
