Coventry City CEO Tim Fisher feels that despite the departure of manager Mark Robins to Huddersfield Town, the Sky Blues are in great shape.
Speaking to City's official club webmaster Nick Connoll, Mr Fisher said: "So for this departure to happen at the business end of the season and in this manner, is frustrating and disappointing in equal measure for all concerned. It is fair to say that we are all deflated by Mark’s decision to go and, equally, I am sure the supporters will feel the same frustration.“I understand that our supporters will be angry and disappointed because they have seen a dramatic turnaround in on-pitch fortunes and performances in the short space of time that Mark has been here. "However, we must remember that we used Mark's appointment to put long term processes and frameworks in place at Ryton to uplift and improve the whole playing side of the club. That effort involved other staff such as Steve Waggott who have played a significant part in the turnaround - so despite Mark's exit we remain in very good shape behind the scenes. "Finally, we must now move on. The club comes first. We are acutely aware of the style of manager we want and we will start the process for appointing a replacement with immediate effect. “Everyone has been able to see the potential we have here at Coventry City and in the last months we have taken massive strides forward. We owe it to the supporters of this great club to make sure the progress continues under our next manager.” More on this: http://www.ccfc.co.uk/news/article/fisher-on-robins-departure-656639.aspx?pageView=full#anchored
