Steven Pressley: Coventry keen on Falkirk boss after three weeks without a perma

Pressley, who played for the Sky Blues for a year in the mid-1990s, has guided the Scottish League One side to a Scottish FA Cup semi-final against Hibernian on 13 April.

Lee Carsley stepped in as Coventry's caretaker manager in February when Mark Robins left the cash-strapped League One club to take over at Huddersfield Town in the Championship.

Bairns chairman Martin Ritchie is reluctant to lose Pressley, in charge at Falkirk since February 2010, but will not block the 39-year-old's departure.

"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," Ritchie told STV.

"Steven has been attracting interest from clubs over the last 12 months. So it doesn't surprise me another club is interested in our manager."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
