Coventry City manager Mark Robins has spoken to Coventry Live to dismiss any links with the manager role at Championship side Birmingham City.

Reports emerged this weekend claiming that Birmingham City are lining up a swoop for Coventry City manager Mark Robins, with current boss Pep Clotet coming under fire.

However, it has now been confirmed by the club that they have not been contacted about any potential interest in Robins. Upon the rumours, Robins moved said that he is “totally happy” in with the club, adding that he is committed to the role with the Sky Blues. He said:

“I can honestly, unequivocally, say that I’m totally happy here. Totally happy. I’m invested in the job. Everyone knows what happened in 2013 when I left (to join Huddersfield), and when I was told about the interest from Sunderland that was something that came into my mind, but also the fact that I love it here and the supporters are brilliant with me.”

Club CE Dave Boddy also responded to the links, stating that there is no truth in the rumours whatsoever as they continue to maintain a strong relationship with Birmingham City through their groundshare.

“There’s no truth in it what-so-ever. Birmingham City haven’t spoken to us about it and I speak to their chairman, whom I have a good relationship with, on a regular basis because of our groundshare situation at St Andrew’s.”

Birmingham City currently sit in 15th place and are on a poor run of form, while Mark Robins has guided his Coventry City side to 5th place in League One, having lost only two matches so far this season.
