Sky Blues chief defends decision

The Sky Blues parted company with manager Andy Thorn over the

weekend after the club started life in League One with three

successive draws.

Writing on the club’s official website, Mr Fisher said: “Success

only comes from consistent high-level performances coupled with a

winning mentality – the desire to win. We cannot escape the fact

that the results have not been acceptable.

“All staff were fully informed over the summer that the aim this

season was to reverse the trend of failure and have a strong start.

The situation required change to ensure that we do not have an

embedded trend of not winning.”

Thorn was in permanent charge of the cash-strapped club for 16

months, in which time Coventry were relegated from the

Championship.
