‘Definitely’ – Coventry City man shares stance on future ahead of likely summer exit

Coventry City midfielder Liam Kelly has no plans to hang up his boots as his Sky Blues contract moves closer to expiry.

Coventry City skipper Kelly has seen a lot over his time with the club. He joined from Leyton Orient in the summer of 2017 and since then, the Sky Blues have gone from League Two to Championship promotion battles.

Kelly has played 175 times for the club over nearly seven years on the books and while he hasn’t always been the first name on the team sheet, the Scot has been a dependable figure when called upon and his experience and leadership is of immeasurable value off the pitch.

Injuries have brought the 34-year-old back into the fold of late. He’s started the back-to-back league wins over Rotherham United and Watford and amid this run in the team, talk over his future has arisen.

Coventry Live spoke to Kelly over his future and he states that he definitely plans on continuing his career beyond the end of the campaign. His deal is up this summer and the report notes a new Coventry City deal is unlikely, but he will not be hanging up his boots any time soon.

“Yes, definitely,” he replied when asked about continuing his career.

“I still feel fit and even after being out for long periods of time I feel I can still come in and play for 90 minutes. I have still got a good few seasons left in me. I feel fit and strong, and, in the meantime, I just need to keep performing for Coventry when I am asked to play.

“For the immediate future, I am just looking forward to helping the team get into the play-offs and trying to achieve something.”

Who is this?

Ending on a high

With Kelly more than likely moving on from Coventry City at the end of the season, he’ll be determined to end his long-term affiliation with the club on a high. They’re still in a good position to do so too, with the play-off race wide open.

Mark Robins’ side fell short in the play-off final last season, a game Kelly played all 120 minutes in. Avenging that defeat would mark just about the perfect send-off should he depart as seemingly expected.

Coventry City have nine games left to break into the top-six to give themselves a shot at Wembley redemption. They currently sit 8th in the Championship table with just a point between them and 6th-placed Norwich City.

Up next for Kelly and co is an FA Cup quarter-final clash at Wolves this weekend. They’re then back in league action against Huddersfield Town at the end of the month.
