As expected, Kevin Kilbane has announced his retirement from football.
Kilbane was brought to the Sky Blues by Andy Thorn and heavily featured until Thorn was sacked and Mark Robins took over.
He was then banished to the U21's for a bit before leaving for what was given as personal reasons by Steve Waggott a week ago.
Kilbane is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: "I know it’s the right decision for me, and my family, and, if there is one consolation, I’m pleased it has been in my hands. A lot of good friends haven’t had the privilege because injury has ended their careers.
"When I think back to the sacrifices I have made over the years, particularly representing my country, I don’t regret them.
"Most importantly, after too many nights, weeks and months away from them, I want to be near my family. It’s time to put me and the family first now.
"I would like to thank the directors, coaching staff, players and supporters at Coventry City Football Club for my brief time at the Club and wish them all the best for the future".
