MOWBRAY QUITS STRUGGLERS

0

FORMER Celtic boss Tony Mowbray has quit struggling Coventry City who are rock bottom of League One.

The 52-year-old gaffer has decided to part company with the Sky Blues after only 18 months in charge.
And Mowbray blames himself for the club’s plight after the midweek 2-2 draw at AFC Wimbledon left them at the foot of England’s third tier with only six points and without a victory in their opening 10 matches.
He said after the game: “Personally, it’s embarrassing to go 10 games without a win.
“I’m an honourable guy and I won’t be a burden to this club.
“It’s my fault that we haven’t got a dominant 6ft 4ins centre-half on the pitch to help the young lads.
“I feel like I’ve let the team down by not finding the right defender. We’ve tried really hard to recruit over the summer, but we still couldn’t find the right man who could help this team.”
Mowbray, who also bossed Hibs and Middlesbrough, took over from ex-Hoops defender Steven Pressley at the Midlands club in March last year.
He departs with an overall record of 26 wins, 24 draws and 26 defeats in his 76 matches at the helm.
The former Parkhead centre-half lasted only nine months in the Celtic dug-out after replacing Gordon Strachan in June 2009.
The Bhoys had to pay West Brom £2million in a compensation package for Mowbray, but sacked him 24 hours after they had lost 4-0 to St Mirren in Paisley in March 2010.
Ironically, he took over Strachan at Middlesbrough in October that year, but he was axed three years later after winning only two out of 12 games at the start of the 2013/14 campaign.
