Fisher clarifies Barber position
Coventry City chief executive Tim Fisher has moved to clear up the role of incoming advisor Paul Barber.
City's owners SISU have recruited Barber after he stood down from his role as chief executive of Major League Soccer side Vancouver Whitecaps in February, with Tottenham and the Football Association also among his former employers.
"There appears to have been a little confusion in presenting Paul's role in the media," Fisher told Coventry's official website in a club statement.
"Just to be 100% clear and transparent with our supporters and our staff, Paul is advising Coventry City's owners and not the club itself.
"As I said at the weekend, my immediate objective is to carry out a review and restructure which leads to a business plan and accompanying budget to achieve a bounce back to the Championship.
"The club will present the plan and budget to the owners and the owners' advisors. Paul will duly review and support the owners in our subsequent discussions."
