Coventry City looking to poach manager of rival League One club



According to HITC Sport, Coventry City are considering a move to bring in David Flitcroft as their new manager.

David Flitcroft is currently the manager of Bury and he has been at the club since 2013.

The 42-year-old has previously been caretaker manager at Barnsley.

His time at Bury has been successful; he lead the Shakers to promotion from League Two in 2015 and then he won League One manager of the month for September.

Flitcroft is regarded as one of the best young managers in the country and Coventry City could try to poach him off their League One counterparts.

Tony Mowbray resigned after Coventry City had not won a single league game and were stranded at the bottom of League One.

Caretaker manager Mark Venus oversaw a victory over Port Vale which lifted the Sky Blues off the foot of the table but they are still very much in a relegation scrap at the moment.

Venus is also shortlisted to take over with Steve Evans and Steve Cotterill also being mentioned.

Coventry fans – what do you think? Would Flitcroft be a good appointment? Could he get you out of this mess? Is he a good option for the future?
