De Zeeuw blow for Sky Blues

Published Add your comment

Coventry defender Arjan De Zeeuw is set to miss the start of the new season after suffering "a freak accident", according to manager Iain Dowie.

The 37-year-old, signed on a free transfer from Wigan earlier this summer, damaged his medial knee ligaments in training last week and will now have to wait a minimum of six weeks before being able to make his City bow.

"I feel for Arjan because I know how much he was looking forward to the start of the season," Dowie told the club´s official website. "It was a freak accident and we are pleased that it isn´t more serious than it is."
