Nazon says leaving Coventry City may have been the 'wrong decision'

FOOTBALL: STRIKER Duckens Nazon told Mark Robins last night he may have made the wrong decision to leave Coventry City.

The 23-year-old Haiti international appeared 21 times for the Sky Blues, scoring six goals.

Nazon quickly became a firm fans’ favourite at the Ricoh Arena, but he decided to quit Coventry in a bid to progress his career.

During a phone call with the manager, Nazon expressed a hint of regret after leaving City. But he ultimately decided to further his career away from League Two.

Robins said: “Me and Duckens had a conversation last night.

“He thinks he may have made the wrong decision leaving.

“We wanted to keep him – Wolverhampton and his agent were happy for him to stay.

“But he wants to progress and I think he can move to League One or Championship level.

“He’s done well and put in some good performances.”

Nazon’s exit prompted Robins to confirm he is still looking to bring in some fresh faces during the January transfer window.

Josh Barrett and Jordan Maguire-Drew have already joined the Sky Blues.

But Robins said he ‘needs to do something’ to improve the depth of the squad at his disposal.

“I’m not thinking everything is as it needs to be,” said Robins.

“The depth of the squad needs to get back up and there’s a lot of work going on.

“We’re looking to sort something as soon as possible. We have a big month with some important games ahead.”
