McCann disappointed at another City defeat but confident the new manager will have the desired impact...
City midfielder Chris McCann believes the new manager’s role is vital to ensuring the Sky Blues survival this term.
Having only had a few training sessions with his new squad, Russell Slade took charge for the first time against Bristol Rovers on Boxing Day.
McCann reflected on the appointment: “The Gaffer has come in now and I am sure he will fix what is broken over the next few weeks, try to solidify us.
“I think he’s got a tough job on his hands and I think everyone knows that but I am sure he’ll get the best out of the players here.
"He’s been working tirelessly to get the units to work together and I am sure he’ll make us tighter over the next couple of weeks.”
The Sky Blues loan-man will play his final fixture for the club against Peterborough on Dec 31st, before a move across the pond to MLS side Atlanta.
But McCann is confident that City will be able to end their poor run of league form. The 29-year old added: “We were dangerous when we attacked but just need to be better concentrated off the ball, more solid and harder to break down.
"It’s too easy for teams to score against us at the minute as we saw with another four goals today.
“We had a couple of chances with Jordan Turnbull’s header and Andy Rose hit the bar but it’s a difficult one to lose 4-1. We need to keep believing because we are good players and a good side.”
