Coleman shakes up Sky Blues

25 March 2008 03:03
Coventry City boss Chris Coleman has started his re-shaping of the Sky Blues squad by telling eight players that they can leave the club in the summer. Arjan de Zeeuw, Michael Hughes, Colin Hawkins, Stuart Giddings, Ellery Cairo, Wayne Andrews, Lee Hildreth and Liam Davis have all been told that they have no future at the Ricoh Arena. Coleman has eyes on new recruits for next season, but accepts that City must make sure of Championship survival first. He told the Evening Telegraph: "Ideally we want a squad of 22 outfield players and two or three keepers, so we are now looking, but the biggest thing is staying in this division. "It is much easier to go from the Championship to the Premier League than it is from the one below, so we need to be in this league. That's where our total focus is. "There will be a lot of changes, but I have said all along that every one of them have a job to do for themselves and the club."
