Robins named Coventry manager

Mark Robins has been named new manager of Coventry City.

Robins, 42, enjoyed a successful two-year spell in charge of Rotherham between 2007 and 2009 before taking the reins at Barnsley, a position he also performed strongly in until May last year when differences with the Oakwell board forced him to resign.

The former Manchester United, Norwich City and Leicester City striker said: "This is a great opportunity. Coventry is a club with great tradition and, although we find ourselves in League One, the squad that has been assembled is better than the results so far have shown.

"I am relishing the opportunity to turn things around and bring better times for the Sky Blues supporters. There is a lot to be done and I will get straight to work with the players and backroom staff."
