Defender praises manager Coventry City's latest signing Richard Keogh has said the manager Aidy Boothroyd was the key factor in his decision to join the Sky Blues. Keogh told BBC Sport, "He's very infectious. I feel at this stage of my career he's the manager who can help me move forward as a player and that's why I've signed. "When the manager showed me round I was taken aback by how big the stadium is and how big the club actually is. "Coventry's got a great history of being in the Premier League and after looking around the facilities I know exactly where the club should be." Keogh joined Coventry City from Carlisle United and signed a three year deal.
