“I ask the fans to trust what we’re trying to do and sometimes you have to sell an asset so you can build.” - Coventry City’s Tony Mowbray

25 July 2016

The City boss has said he is looking to build an 'infrastructure' at the club...

The Coventry City Manager has urged the Sky Blue fans to trust in the club’s decision to sell Romain Vincelot for an undisclosed fee over the weekend.

The Frenchman joined the Sky Blues in 2015 from Leyton Orient and made 46 appearances for the club last season, scoring four goals. Vincelot completed the switch to Bradford on Saturday, with the Sky Blues expected to announce a number of new signings this week. 

Talking in the aftermath of the 2-0 victory over Welsh side Newport County on Saturday, Mowbray said: “Romain was more than happy and it was a good deal for the club. 

“I know we’re losing a very talented boy who was fantastic for us last year – I sat with him in my office and talked it through and we decided it was right for him and right for me.

“I wish him well and, as I said to him in the office last night, I hope that Coventry and Bradford are the top two teams in the division next season.

“I have to ask the fans to trust what we are trying to do and sometimes you have to sell an asset so you can build. I’m trying to create an infrastructure at the club. Hopefully there will be new heroes for the supporters as I build a team in the image I want to see.”
