P45 for Coleman after Watford defeat

P45 for Coleman after Watford defeat

Coventry City have given Chris Coleman the ol` heave ho following the 4-0 defeat to Watford on the last game of the season but insist 'it`s not a knee-jerk reaction`.

The goal hungry Hornets went Ricoh-agogo to leave Coleman cursing his 'embarrassing` players and even mooted that the result would sit with him and his playing staff until the start of next season.

Sadly he hasn`t even lasted it to the end of May - let alone pre-season or the announcement of the new season fixture list!

Of the Hornets 4-0 cruise at Coventry, Coleman even admitted it "was the worst possible way to go out" - and the Sky Blues board obviously agreed with him, giving him the shove just 48 hours later!

It`s not the first time this season that a manager has been handed his P45 following a defeat against Watford. Oh no, Jim Magilton was pushed out of the ever revolving at QPR after losing 3-1 at Vicarage Road just before Christmas.
