Chris McCann spoke to the Coventry Telegraph upon competing his loan signing with the Sky Blues this week...
Loan signing Chris McCann is confident that the Sky Blues will be competitive in League One this term under the leadership of manager Tony Mowbray.
The ex-Middlesborough boss guided City to an eighth place finish last season, with McCann recalling the Sky Blues opening day victory over eventual title winners Wigan Athletic, where he made 40 appearances during 2015/16.
The 29-year old midfielder will undoubtedly bring a wealth of experience to the Sky Blues’ youthful squad, having spent the majority of his playing career in the top two tiers of the English game.
McCann said: “You can ask anyone in the changing room what they think of the gaffer and they will all say they think he’s brilliant. When I spoke to him the first time I made a decision there and then that I was going to come here.”
“The one thing the gaffer said to me is that I have experience of winning and getting promoted and if I can come in and add that little bit of experience then the team will be in good hands and hopefully push forward this year.
“Coventry were at the top end of the league for a lot of last season and tough to play against, as I know from the first game of the season when they played us off the park.
“There’s a good bit of talent here and it’s just a question of fine tuning it and seeing where we go. They have players buying into the gaffer’s beliefs and way he wants to play and they caused a lot of teams a lot problems. And there’s no reason why they can’t do that again this year.”
