Coventry City appoint Russell Slade as new manager

Coventry City confirm Russell Slade as their new manager until the end of the season.

Coventry City have confirmed Russell Slade as their new manager until the end of the season.

The Sky Blues have been without a permanent boss since Tony Mowbray stepped down in September, with technical director Mark Venus in temporary charge since then.

However, Slade has now been appointed until the end of the current campaign having parted company with Charlton Athletic after just five months at the helm earlier this year.

"We are delighted to welcome Russell Slade to Coventry City as the club's new manager," Venus told the club's official website.

"We're pleased to have secured the services of a highly-rated manager who has experience both at League One level and higher. Russell has been at football clubs in challenging circumstances before and has experience of steering them through to safety.

"The club believe that Russell is the right man to take Coventry City forward and hope that everyone will give him their full support."

Slade, who has previously managed the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion, Leyton Orient and Cardiff City, will take charge of his first game against Bristol Rovers on Boxing Day.
