Coventry City assigned Tony Mowbray with the managerial role at the English League One club on March 3 of the current year and the English manager has already revealed to the public some of the plans and accomplishment that he wants to make as the coach of the team.
One of Tony Mowbray’s plans includes taking Coventry City to the Championship League as well as signing a few players which have attracted his attention and would like to add to the team.
There is something else which represents a bigger importance in Tony Mowbray and his squad and it’s to survive for another season in the English League One. The club is currently located in the bottom spots of the third tier English League and in order to the plans of Mowbray to properly begin; surviving in this league is the first thing that needs to be done.
Coventry City’s recently appoint manager Tony Mowbray said: “I have been looking at the contracts of players over the last few days because it’s been at the forefront of my mind. I want to know what is the squad and what have we got left in contract next year, how many players are contracted footballers at this club. I’m trying to put plans together to build a team and the worse-case scenario is we have no idea where we’re going and we’re stuck with 13 contracted players.’’
“You have to forward plan and know where you are going. That process has already started and I have sheets of paper in my office of what a team might look like next year and what positions we crucially have to fill who’s available, what salary would he expect, is he available on a free transfer and would he think about Coventry and having those conversations?’’
“But if we get relegated the whole dynamic changes,”
Tony Mowbray already experience in coaching teams in the Championship League as he was the coach of West Bromwich Albion and managed to turn them into the champions of that league during the 2007-08 season. The 51 year old English manager is hoping he can do the same thing with Coventry City.
