No Devine Right For Man Utd Or Arsenal Loanees To Play - Robins

Loan players have to earn the right to play - Robins
Coventry City manager Mark Robins has said that just because Reece Brown is on loan from Manchester United and Conor Henderson is on loan from Arsenal they do not have a devine right to play.
"You want to bring people in who make a difference," said City boss Mark Robins to the CT's Andy Turner.
"Sometimes they don’t – it’s not an exact science because some can hack it and some can’t, but sometimes circumstances affect things.
"With Conor, because we had to go a different way he has not been able to play his way into the side and then he got an injury when I might have been able to feed him in against Arlesey to have another crack at it and get his confidence.
"He needs to get some confidence and minutes under his belt but he’s got to earn the right to do that. But we’re in a position where we have got to pick points up from every single game and people have got to fight and be prepared to do that, so we’re looking for reliability but also a bit of magic that might unlock the door."Conor is out injured at the moment. He kicked the ground and damaged his ankle so he’s in a period of treatment and will be a couple of weeks maybe, so that’s disappointing, while Reece played in the Under-21s yesterday. "We look after them and they have to earn the right to play. I don’t think Manchester United, Arsenal or anyone else think that their players have a divine right.
"They let them come on loan because they are going to get an opportunity but then it’s down to them. Part of it is the parent club seeing if they can sustain performances at a higher level because that gives them an idea. They don’t come out to rest on their laurels or come on holiday; it’s their career."
