Coventry City have responded after former Premier League club AFC Bournemouth reportedly made contact over manager Mark Robins.
Relegation to the Championship in the 2019/20 season saw Bournemouth opt to mutually terminate Eddie Howe’s contract.
Howe was instrumental in the Cherries’ rise from League Two to the Premier League, having a five-year stay in the top flight ended on the final day of the season.
Dropping down to England’s second tier with Watford and Norwich City, the Vitality Stadium outfit’s search for a new manager is said to have started with an offer to Coventry for Robins.
That interest is now said to have been responded to by the Sky Blues, who are set to take on the Championship after winning the League One title and gaining promotion.
Coventry LIVE claim that sources close to the club have informed them that Bournemouth have made no official contact for Robins.
TEAMtalk who reported that Robins had been approached, also claim that Jason Tindall, Howe’s former assistant and Aston Villa number 2 John Terry are amongst the bookies favourites to take over.
Coventry have been obviously quick to respond to the rumour of an approach from Bournemouth and rightfully so.
Robins is an excellent manager and one who will hope to turn the Sky Blues into a steady and consistent Championship side. The last thing the club needs is uncertainty over the manager’s future, so they have done well to nip it in the bud early.
Do you think Robins will be subject to further offers from Bournemouth? Let us know in the comments section below…
