Coventry City confirm departure of manager Andy Thorn

Coventry City have confirmed it's "parted company" with manager Andy Thorn.

In a statement on the Club's website, Chief executive Tim Fisher said:

"We have not taken this decision lightly. We recognised that last season there were off-the-field matters that affected team affairs and felt it was right and proper to give Andy the chance to put that right over the course of the summer and the start of the season."

“We do not feel that has happened. Of course, the fact that we have surrendered the lead in the first three league games has not helped but there are several other factors in this decision – not just three disappointing results."

The statement also said that Assistant manager Richard Shaw and first team coach Lee Carsley will take temporary charge of team affairs.
