George Boateng returns to Coventry City as coach in Championship


Former Coventry City midfielder George Boateng is set to make a return to the club, this time not as a player but as part of manager Mark Robins’ coaching team in the Championship.

Boateng, along with Rhys Carr, has been appointed as first-team coaches, signaling a significant reshuffle in the coaching staff.

The move comes as assistant boss Adi Viveash departs the CBS Arena after serving alongside Robins since 2017.

Boateng, a former Netherlands international, previously played for Coventry City from 1997 to 1999, making a notable impact with seven goals in 57 appearances before transferring to Aston Villa.

“We are very pleased to welcome George and Rhys to Coventry City,” expressed Robins.

“They both impressed us during the extensive recruitment process for this important role and each bring key skills to the football department.”

Carr arrives at Coventry City from Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he served as an individual development coach and also gained experience with the Republic of Ireland Women’s team.

Boateng, a beloved figure among older Coventry City fans, returns to the club after coaching stints with the Ghana national team and Aston Villa’s youth setup.

His return is seen as a pivotal move to bolster the coaching staff’s expertise as they prepare for the challenges ahead in the Championship.
