New City boss speaks Andy Thorn has been speaking about being given the permanent manager’s job at Coventry City. Speaking to the club website, Thorn said: "I have really enjoyed the spell in temporary charge and am relishing the opportunity to shape the team over the longer term. "I have often said that I think we have a very good squad of players here who are capable of producing good, attractive football on a consistent basis. “Of course, we will constantly be looking to improve both in terms of existing players and bringing in new recruits. There is always player movement in the summer, and we know that will be the case again. "I have had really good backing from the players, excellent support from the Chairman, the Board and the supporters and I want to ensure that I justify the confidence they have shown in me by offering me the job on a permanent basis."
