Coventry City make approach to secure surprise deal for ex-Championship boss

Coventry City are lining up discussions with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink over the vacant managerial post, according to The Sun.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was sacked by Queens Park Rangers in November and is therefore available for work.

Coventry City have been without a manager for a while now after Tony Mowbray resigned in late September.

Since then, Mark Venus has been assuming first team duties as caretaker manager but fans stepped up protests to force Venus to quit his role and find a replacement.

Venus sits on the board of directors and will be partly responsible for bringing in a new manager.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink enjoyed a very successful start to life as a manager in England, guiding Burton Albion to League Two before leaving with the Brewers sat top of League One.

However he failed to replicate that at QPR and was sacked with the club sitting in the bottom half of the table.

Coventry fans – would you take Hasselbaink at your club? Could he keep you up? Let us know in the comments below…
