Coventry City have confirmed that they are conducting negotiations with the former Hull city manager Phil Brown over the possibility of taking over from Andy Thorn, who was sacked a few weeks ago. Coventry City have been without a manager for the last few weeks. They have made a very poor start to the season and could possibly face relegation from division if things do not improve quickly. As a result, the board has started conducting negotiations with the possible candidates. They have now confirmed that the former Hull city manager Phil Brown, who is currently out of work, is one of the candidates.
The 53-year-old former Hull city manager has been out of work since being sacked by Preston midway through last season. Phil Brown is best known for his extraordinary spell with Hull city when he managed to take them from the bottom of the Championship to the Premier league. The first season in the Premier league was astounding, but a lot of downhill movement since then meant that Phil Brown left Hull city. He spent a few months at Preston before being sacked by the club after poor results. He will be hoping to get Coventry City out of the relegation zone.
“Last season there were off-the-field matters that affected team affairs. We felt it was right to give Andy the chance to put that right but do not feel that has happened. Of course the fact that we have surrendered the lead in the first three league games has not helped. But there are several other factors in this decision – not just three disappointing results. We would like to put on record our thanks to Andy for his work in current and previous roles at the club,” said the Coventry City’s Chief Executive after the sacking of Andy Thorn.
