Newly-appointed Coventry manager Chris Coleman believes the Coca-Cola Championship strugglers have the potential to be bigger than former side Fulham.

The Welshman was confirmed as Iain Dowie´s successor by chairman Ray Ranson on Tuesday after penning a three-and-a-half-year deal at the Ricoh Arena.

He said: "Look at the fan base and look at the stadium. I think the maximum crowd we had at Craven Cottage was 24,000. Here, you are talking about a team in the Championship who have lost a lot of games, playing in the Cup against West Brom, another Championship team, and getting 28,000 fans. That´s very impressive, so there´s a catchment there for us."
