City defend McSheffrey sale

Coventry City managing director Paul Fletcher has defended the club's decision to sell star man Gary McSheffrey to Championship rivals Birmingham City.

A £4m deal was agreed on Wednesday after a number of earlier bids for the 23-year-old.

'It was never our intention to let Gary go but we have made a decision which we believe is in the best interests of the club,' Fletcher told the club's website.

'Gary has been a tremendous servant to the club but there comes a time in everyone's career when they have the opportunity to move on.

'Although I understand that this decision will be unpopular with many of our supporters, I would urge all of our fans to look long-termn towards our goal of reaching the Premiership within the next three years.

'This money will help manager Micky Adams to strengthen the squad and create a better team to get us there.'
