Free agent Michael Doyle says that he would consider a return to Coventry City, the club that he spent eight years at following his release this summer from Sheffield United, according to the Coventry Telegraph.
The 33-year-old has spent four years with United making over 200 appearances, with 60 of those coming in this campaign alone.
Of those four years, three of them they reached the play-offs and the other they missed the play off spots by one place.
The most recent attempt resulting in United under Doyle’s leadership losing on aggregate by a remarkable scoreline of 7 – 6 to Swindon, following a 5 – 5 draw in the second leg.
When asked about the next step, the 33-year-old told the Coventry Telegraph: “I’m open to anything at the moment, I’m still ambitious and wherever I end up I want to be successful and challenging. I have got plenty of options and have to find what’s best for me.”
He added: “Coventry are going to make a big statement if they get Tony Mowbray as their manager because I don’t think he’d agree to go back there without them giving it a proper go to get out of this division because he’s always been a pretty successful manager.”
“I don’t want to go somewhere for the sake of playing football, I want to get out of whatever division I am in.”
