MY CCFC XI: Danny Cross picks his best Sky Blues side

1 May 2020

Coventry City fan Danny Cross has selected his Sky Blues XI.

Danny, pictured with Liverpool star Mo Salah, is a lifelong Sky Blues fan and was in the Academy in the early 2000s. Now, he talks us through his team...

Goalkeeper - Steve Ogrizovic

City legend. Playing at that level for so long was incredible. Would work with youth team players in his spare time, all round great guy.

Right Back - Roland Nilsson

Rolls Royce of a player. Incredibly fit, consistent and to think we got him at the back end of his career he must have been some player in his youth.

 

Left Back - Steve Froggatt

Crowbarred in at left back slightly but a real favourite of mine.   

Centre Back - Mo Konjic

I like my central defenders to be strong, dominant footballers and he epitomises those traits. Also the joy of watching his dribbles forward were immeasurable.

 

Centre Back - Liam Daish

Bit left field some might say but I never saw him have a good bad for City and is my type of defender.

Centre Midfield - Gary McAllister

I really under appreciated him in his first few seasons at the club but as my understanding of football grew as did my respect and admiration for Gary Mac. 

Centre Midfield - Michael Doyle

Micky's a modern day hero for us and surely a future manager some day. Good player in his first spell, great character in his second spell.

 

Centre Midfield - James Maddison

From day one we could all see his quality. We he gets a move to a big club đź‘€ he will cement himself in the England side.

Striker - Dion Dublin

Most people get their first heart break at school with their school sweetheart. For me it was a 6ft plus striker from Leicester at the age of 12. Still will never forget how good he was for us.

 

Striker - Darren Huckerby

Huckers has beaten Noel Whelan to the starting XI for his speed and great individual goals he scored.

Striker - Peter Ndlovu

The Bulawayo Bullet gets the final spot for great goals and his ability to play in a kit 4 sizes to big for him.
