Coventry City Owner and Executive Chairman Doug King has today released the following statement regarding offensive banners displayed on Saturday ahead of our fixture against Leicester City:
Coventry City continues to work alongside West Midlands Police to identify the perpetrators of the disgraceful banners draped along the M69 on Saturday.
The Club will continue to actively support the Police in their investigations.
There is absolutely no place for this in football or any part of society.
Any person or persons who are identified as being involved in this will be permanently banned from our Club.
The late owner of Leicester City and his family have done and continue to do a magnificent job in supporting their Club and their City with huge passion and generosity. As a new owner, their journey is one that I have followed and continue to draw inspiration from.
The huge occasion on Saturday was soured for us at Coventry City because of these events, and we all hope never to see these incidents repeated again.
