'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Did City let the 'new Owen Coyle' go?

Former Coventry City managers seem to be forever being linked with new jobs and it is no different at the moment as Chris Coleman, overlooked for the Wales post, mulls over a move to Greek side Larissa, Micky Adams is linked with hometown club Sheffield United and Iain Dowie is mentioned in despatches with Toronto FC of Major League Soccer.

But it is a former Sky Blues assistant boss who suddenly has the chance to impress in the Premier League after a surprise sacking.

Blackburn Rovers' new owners moved swiftly this week to part company with Sam Allardyce, ostensibly it seems for not fitting in with their new 'positive' vision for the club.

The man charged with fulfilling some lofty ambitions in the short term at least is Steve Kean, Coleman's number two until the summer of 2009 when the pair ended a long working relationship and City brought in Steve Harrison to work alongside the then manager.

A source close to Kean told BBC Sport that Rovers feel they could have the 'new Owen Coyle' under their nose and Anuradha Desai, chairwoman of the club's Venky Group owners, told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph: 'Steve is a hard worker and he is doing a very good job as a coach.

'We have been studying him and have been very impressed. He works long hours and is talented at his job.'
