Steven Pressley: 'Coventry don't have to sell young players'

Steven Pressley claims that Coventry City will not have to sell their young players in January.

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has insisted that the club will not have to sell any of their young players in January.

The Sky Blues started the season by being deducted 10 points after entering administration but Pressley, who won the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month award for October, claims that he is not under pressure to sell players.

"We discussed our vision for the future, like player recruitment and the building of the squad. I said how important it was that we retain our young players and she is so behind what we are trying to do," the Scot told the club's official website.

"Every single club in the world is a selling club at a certain point. If you get a ridiculous offer for a player, then no club will turn it down.

"But, the truth is, we have no intentions of selling our young players in January. None whatsoever, unless that ridiculous offer came in which we couldn't refuse, but I don't see that happening."

Coventry are currently 11th in League One.
