LISTEN: Coventry City boss pays tribute to Cyrille Regis

Coventry City boss Mark Robins has added his tribute to Sky Blues legend Cyrille Regis.

The club's FA Cup winning striker died earlier this week.

The City manager has been speaking ahead of the League Two match against Swindon - which will feature several tributes to Regis.

Other EFL clubs could also host their own events to honour the striker. A statement from the league said, 


“The EFL understands the strength of feeling throughout football for the impact Cyrille Regis made as a player and as a campaigner for black players in the game. The EFL would like to reiterate the respect and gratitude that has been shown by the football family and the wider sporting world for the contribution he has made.

“The EFL has communicated to all 72 Clubs, and while the EFL is placing no obligation on its Clubs to organise a tribute, we are offering our full support for any proposed marks of respect they would like to make ahead of this weekend’s fixtures.

“We will always support the recognition of players who have left a lasting legacy on our game.”

There will also be a minute's applause, and players will wear black arm bands, in Regis' memory before all of this weekend's Premier League games.
