Former Coventry City player and manager, Micky Adams, who led current side Port Vale to a 3-2 home victory over the Sky Blues this afternoon, is to temporarily step down from his role to undergo essential hip surgery.
Less than an hour after the game at Vale Park which saw over 3,000 City fans make the trip across the Midlands, it was announced that Adams would be stepping down for a short while.
Adams said; “I am having surgery on my hip next week, this needs to be done to ensure my long-term health.
“It is great that I am going into this surgery with a win and a great performance under our belts and I am looking forward to returning to the dugout as soon as possible.
“In the meantime Rob Page will take over and will be assisted by Mark Grew and I have every confidence that they will help Vale continue on from this great win today.”
In Adams’ absense, another former City player will take charge at Vale Park in Rob Page
