Former Premier League side Bournemouth have made an approach to Coventry City for manager Mark Robins, according to TEAMtalk.
After suffering relegation to the Championship in the 2019/20 season, the Cherries opted to mutually release Eddie Howe from his contract and the hunt for a new manager is now starting to begin.
Howe successfully guided Bournemouth from League Two to become an established Premier League but their five-year stay in the top flight ended, dropping down to the second tier with Watford and Norwich City.
With the 2020/21 season now upon us and the transfer window in full swing, bringing in a new manager is top of the club’s priority.
And, a potential new manager could be Robins, who has guided Coventry from League One back to the Championship, winning the league title in the process.
TEAMtalk report that Robins has been approached, whilst also claiming that Jason Tindall, Howe’s former assistant and Aston Villa number two John Terry are amongst the bookies favourites to take over at the Vitality Stadium.
Robins looks unlikely to leave the Sky Blues given that he has already signed a total of five players this summer which include Gustavo Hamer, Callum O’Hare and Ryan Giles.
Coventry should simply not allow Robins to leave and he would be mad himself to depart them now.
Given that Bournemouth are in the same league as the Sky Blues next term, it would prove more of a managerial challenge for Robins to stay with Coventry and see if he can ensure they become a solid Championship side.
Do you think Robins would be tempted to join Bournemouth? Let us know in the comments section below…
