Mark Robins, former Coventry City boss, has said the council needs to support his old club.
Coventry City's Development Director, Steve Waggot, has told ITV News Central there's still a "shed load of work to do" following the departure of Mark Robins.
Following the appointment of former Coventry City boss at Huddersfield Town, Chairman Dean Hoyle has said Mark has the knowledge and skills that the Board of Directors set out for the new role.

Mark has the knowledge, skills and attributes that the Board of Directors set out for our new manager and it is clear that he shares our vision, philosophy and values.
He has good knowledge of the division from his previous spell with Barnsley.
He has also shown an ability to develop young players. Indeed, his work with the FA on the Elite Player Performance Plan and his commitment to development was a big factor in his appointment.
The 43-year-old has joined Huddersfield on a rolling contract and will take charge of the team on Sunday in their FA Cup fifth round game at home to Wigan.
"To say we are disappointed is an understatement. We gave Mark a three-year contract which we saw as a long-term appointment.
“Added to this, Mark was able to bring in those members of staff that he requested, plus we gave a considerable financial commitment in terms of players brought in during the loan windows to ensure that we had a strong, competitive team on the pitch.
"Over the last few months, we have had several clubs interested in securing Mark's services and we have fought off multiple approaches. We made every effort to ensure he stayed with us.
– Tim Fisher, Coventry City Chief Executive
“Once it became obvious that there was no way forward we had no choice but to eventually allow him to speak to Huddersfield."
