Sky Blues appoint Coleman

19 Feb 2008 - 13:42:57

Coventry City have named the former Fulham and Real Sociedad manager Chris Coleman as their new boss.

The Welshman has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Sky Blues who parted company with Iain Dowie last week.

Coleman was in charge of the Cottagers for four years before being axed in April 2007 as the club flirted with relegation.

He teamed up with Sociedad last summer before leaving the Spanish side in January.

City chairman Ray Ranson told the club's official website: "Chris is a progressive young manager with excellent coaching credentials and has a real desire to deliver success for our club.

"I've been flattered by the number of top-class coaches and managers who have shown an interest in managing Coventry City, but Chris was always our number one target.

"I'm looking forward to working with him we share the same passion for football and how a club should be managed. I have no doubt that he will help to take this great club forward."
