21 December 2016 : Slade Is Number One At Christmas At Coventry
League One side Coventry City have appointed former Yeovil Town boss Russell Slade as their new manager. Having worked his way though Leyton Orient, Cardiff City and Charlton Athletic in recent years, he seems to be on a mission to work with the country's most difficult and controversial owners. He now moves on to work with SISU, who are still the Sky Blues owners, despite the ongoing disdain from their fans.

Slade's first game in charge willbe their Boxing Day fixture against Bristol Rovers and he has been given a contract until the end of the 2016-17 season. The 56 year old takes over a club sat in 23rd place in the League One table and two points from safety, and his remit will doubtless be to do what he did for Brighton and Leyton Orient in his first season with them - save them from relegation. Technical Director Mark Venus explained the appointment:

"We are delighted to welcome Russell Slade to Coventry City as the Club’s new manager. 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 has been out of work for just over a month, having left Charlton Athletic on November 14th. He was given just 21 games in charge at The Valley before owner Roland Duchatelet decided to select his eighth manager in under three years.
