Sky Blues Set For Pressley Talks

Sky Blues Set For Pressley Talks

Falkirk manager Steven Pressley has been granted permission to talk to Coventry City about becoming the new boss of the Sky Blues.

Falkirk chairman Martin Ritchie told STV: 'We have an agreement with Steven that, should a club come calling, then we wouldn't stand in his way if he felt it was a career progression.

'There has been no offer from Coventry to release Steven from his current contract, so he is still contracted to us.

Now aged 39, Pressley was a well respected player in Scotland while also enduring a difficult spell with the Sky Blues having been signed by Phil Neal with some of the proceeds of the sale of Phil Babb to Liverpool.

Falkirk is his first managerial post and Pressley's cultivation of a young side which has reached a major semi-final for the second season in a row has caught the eye of clubs down south.

As with Robins we haven't gone for the obvious option such as a Phil Brown or Paul Ince. Interesting that we are prepared to pay compo for him.
