Cup countdown: Mourinho to help Sky Blues?
Chris Coleman and Jose Mourinho built up a friendship while in charge of West London rivals Fulham and Chelsea and the Coventry City boss is pondering a call to the Portuguese ahead of Saturday's big FA Cup clash.
Coleman told the Sunday People: 'I've spoke to him once since I've been at Coventry and I always feel I can ring him, maybe before the Chelsea game...'
Tongue in cheek perhaps from the Sky Blues boss, but the story is one of a number that will appear in the national press over the next few days, a sure sign that City are enjoying a rare moment in the spotlight.
